Ghana vs Uganada, which Country to put on CV

It's that time of the year again,

Recruitment season is beginning. We all know that to land that BB gig you need to say you are from the Sahara Desert,

But which country do you choose?

France? No that is not in Africa!

Goldman Sachs wants the finest ebony, only the Sahara can make and a 1.0-2.0 CGPA.

I am going with Uganda, there are many Kenyans in IBD and Americans even made Kenyan a President. 

Uganda is the perfect country for CV. It even worked for Elon Musk!
