To make the matter worse, a popular newspaper based in Germany has allegedly reported negative news concerning Africa. According to their headline, it is believed that the newspaper reported that the virus from Africa is currently in their country.

Additionally, he claims that most international media stations and newspapers usually reports negativity about Africa. Recently president Uhuru Kenyatta admitted that he has stopped watching those media because he feels like they are always addressing Africa in a negative way.
Netizens have reacted to the whole issue claiming that Western media has no respect to Africans. They treat them as the source of all the bad things that are happening in the world. Here are some of their reactions.
