China’s future in Africa


China Africa Relations

China Africa Relations

China has great goodwill in Zimbabwe, South Africa and other African countries.

However, a spokesperson for the Chinese Foreign Minister may have jeopardised that by offering praise for the recently deceased Robert Mugabe.

Mugabe had become as hated in Zimbabwe as Castro was in Cuba.

Chinese investors in Zimbabwe or South Africa rely heavily on favorable governments, because the investors seek a high return.

If China wishes to maintain a long term presence in southern Africa, perhaps strategic investments/commitments to the public’s future are preferred over their current “get-rich-quick” schemes.

Pope Francis recently denounced Mozambique for corrupt officials exploiting natural resources and extreme poverty, in what could have been a comment aimed at China.

China risks losing the goodwill it has built up unless they get their act together.
