Tanzania? Somalia? Ethiopia?

It's not as easy as you think. It is obviously African. It has lots of Mercedes cars and a Mercedes off-road vehicle. It is probably right-hand drive, but not sure. Poor and dirty, but also has a newer building in the background. There are at least 20 or 30 countries that would work with these clues. The only other clue would be that the license plates are long, but I wouldn't know how to interpret that.

As for the license plates, actually I edited them and deleted the numbers, to make this GTC more "difficult" as well as to respect car-owners' privacy.
What you said is reasonable to a certain extent. But look at the pic below and find what's on this person's head. Not all Africans have their heads wrapped by long cloth.

Another pic I took in the city. Look at the cloth wrapped around the head of the person in the middle:

Keep guessing and good luck!
