Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Ghana, Niger, Nigeria, Education, Language, Technology

The blog Hausa Online reports [1] that a few days ago a proposal had been made in Wikipedia's discussion pages to delete the Wikipedia in Hausa language, an African Chadic language spoken by more than 24 million people. This comes a few months after the blog Beyond Niamey expressed his concern [2] over another closure proposal, the one to close the Wikipedia in Xhosa.
