Hakuna Matata, Bashir

I’ve been struck by how many news reports announcing the appointment of
Scott Gration as Envoy to Sudan have prominently noted that the former Air Force
general also speaks Swahili. This is great and all, as is the fact that he grew
up in DR Congo, but Swahili is not a major language in Sudan.

  1. Don’t be hard on the guy.
    He speaks African, doesn’t he?

    And besides spending his childhood in the DRC, I’m not sure why he’s credited as being an expert on Africa..
