Thank you for providing some statistics.  I have not verified the 
statistics to find out whether they are reliable or not.  Christophe 
commented [1] that people who reside in Africa would be aware that 
the numbers can be misleading.  The membership is the closest  sample 
group available.  The feedback [2] which I received from a few 
members is that it would be easier for them if information is also 
available in French.
