I think Namibia and maybe Angola. I can't really say much because I don't know what most countries in Africa are like.

It would have been much simpler if you would've just included the entire continent because it's clearly obvious that people have different viewpoints on what "Sub-Sahara" Africa is comprised of.

No they don't. Everybody (except you) knows what it means.

By the way, a country is Sub-Saharan if its capital and most of its population is below the Sahara. The Way British Columbia is a Pacific Coast province, even though some of BC is 1,000 km from the coast. And China is a part of the Pacific Rim, even though pats of China are closer to Africa than to the Pacific.

Everybody knows about your one-man campaign to change the English language and debunk Sub-Saharan Africa, you don't need to bring it up in every thread.

Calm down!

I was just giving the OP a suggestion. I never said he had to do it.
