Cultural Difference

I was reading an article this morning in the Daily Nation. Something that struck me is how the chairman of the electoral commission refuses to resign despite fact that his commission has completely mishandled the election.

It's so different in Asia, where it seems like often, when someone's integrity is being questioned, they resign due to loss of face. Over and over I saw this happening in Taiwan and China, even when one would think it best for a person to hang in there and help their company through a crisis.

But this isn't Asia. TIA. And in Africa, people seem to hold on to positions of power whatever the cost.
