Why force the use of "đang" here?

if đang is not there, it would be "that man lives in Africa"

Người đàn ông kia was marked wrong for me here.... so are "kia" and đó" always interchangeable?

A clean and clear translation should be: Ông/anh đó đang ở Phi châu. No need to use regional or local translation.

I would understand "đang ở" to be temporarily there, not be living there.

Too long translation. Vietnamese is not machine translated, it is much easy and elegant than that: It should be simple like this:

Ông ấy (Ông ta) đang sống ở châu Phi (Phi Châu).

Không cần chữ 'người đàn'. Dùnh chữ anh hay ông là đủ nghĩa.
