Red face Areas Like Sierra Leon Not Inclouded in Population Clusters

It appears that areas like Sierra Leon are not included in Population Clusters, however a large number of slaves came from that area. I am wondering why Sierra Leon is not part of a part of a cluster. Thanks!

They certainly could use some improvement with the African reference populations I do see some improvement though over myOrigins V1.

For West Africa it looks like the focus is on Nigeria based on the shading. There are numerous other places more representative. It should be Ghana to more accurately represent the diaspora and there should definitely be a Mende reference population.

AncestryDNA has more detailed African results.
