Chna is establishing itself in Africa, we have resources that they want, they are putting up buildings we don't really need.
They are building, read "paying off officials" and getting nothing in return YET! But they are looking to the future and the future is Africa!
I see it here in Namibia, most of the big developments that are taking place are being built by Chinese companies, they get awarded tenders over local
companies, they import workers from home while Namibian workers are ending up homeless!
They are corrupt as are many (most) officials in Africa!
"We build buildings for you that you do not need and in return we get what we want when we want or need it!"
Local officials are getting rich while the local population is getting poorer!
Just to add that I am with Brad-H on this one, we are practically neighbours and we both see the same thing happening. Huge influx of Chinese taking
jobs away from the local population, buildings going up that are really not needed or needed but unaffordable for the average local population! It's
real, it's happening and it's actually quite scary!
