(AP Photo/Jens Meyer) HALLE, Germany (AP) — Karamba Diaby makes his way through the historic heart of Halle with the speed of a seasoned politician: slowly.

Two months before Germany’s general elections each handshake and greeting carries added significance because Diaby is intent on becoming the country’s first Black member of Parliament. He listens patiently to his constituents and responds in fluent German with a strong Franco-African accent, courtesy of his Senegalese origins.
