Not very exciting. There are perhaps other things worthy of complaint.
But that AI natural language processing is neglecting African Languages
is not something worth a complaint. AI natural language processing
remains a research area and researchers will use their own languages
first as easiest to work with.

And IMO automated translation is hardly good enough to take it's
use seriously and is not likely to get better soon. Between any two
languages
