you are suggesting that china is some kind of god send to africa.. i provided evidence that they are in fact just in it to exploit africa like every other foreign interloper..they treat africans poorly in china.. and they have taken a hold in some countries.. corrupting officials through bribery to gain access to resources......... africans dont need cheap chinese products..they need self sufficiency....something they will never have if they are always looking for a savior in the form of self serving foreigners.. not feeling the bs..
Stop hating on China and make your own dayam SCHOOLS so that Africa don't NEED China for shit.
Following are quotes from Africans and Chinese about the presence of Chinese workers. Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi is one of the few African leaders to have expressed public reservations about China's presence.ALGERIA-- Mohamed Badi, an engineer for a Chinese building firm:"The Chinese are very competitive. They are well disciplined. Algeria has saved time by granting Chinese companies contracts to carry out some projects."-- Hanane, an employee at a state bank:"The Chinese are taking advantage of the absence of European companies. For example, the majority of dams and housing units are being built by Chinese investors. They would not have been assigned those projects if they had Western competitors here."-- Farid Kayer, a worker in the informal currency market:"Some Chinese people in Algeria have started promoting their country's products. Several shops have been opened to sell Chinese cloth. This phenomenon is new for us. We are waiting to see the outcome of this invasion."LIBYA-- Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, speech in May 2008:"Nowadays, the Chinese communities are in every African country: The plan is to take some of its population and put them in Africa, while Africans just look on and African leaders hold fruitless meetings."MOROCCO-- Chinese trader in Casablanca:"Business is good. Our wares are cheap, cheaper than the Moroccans sell and that is what the people want. The Moroccans sell the same bags as us but for 40 dirhams ($5.4). We sell them for 25. I have a house in China and a house in Morocco. I can be frustrated in Guangzhou or frustrated in Casablanca, it makes no difference to me."-- Moroccan trader Karim:"The Chinese make 3 dirhams on the items they sell. The Moroccans want to earn 10 dirhams. They (Chinese) are the cheapest and that's what makes their reputation.-- Haberdashery owner Azzeddine Lahlou:"The Chinese have smashed prices and there's no more margin. Everyone knows how they work. Morocco is a poor country so the Chinese presence is good for people who find it hard to make ends meet. But the quality of what they sell is not great.""The problem is my Moroccan competitors now buy from China. I went there myself many times but what they were selling didn't interest me. My goods are better quality, with a superior finish."TANZANIA-- Nicholas Mgaya, deputy secretary general of umbrella group Trade Unions Congress of Tanzania:"To be frank, the Chinese influx is a menace to this country. I think we have to look at it afresh. We don't say 'don't come'. Let those whose expertise is not available come.""They take over jobs that should be done by the locals. For example, in the construction sector where you find the majority of the Chinese, you would find people like supervisors, masons and carpenters being employed."We consider this very unfair. We feel it is a situation where Tanzanians are being denied employment on the pretext that the Chinese are experts."-- A senior Tanzanian government official who declined to be identified:"The policy of the Tanzanian government is to employ foreigners who will offer training to Tanzanians. But the tendency we have seen is that many end up here on a long-term basis."ZAMBIA-- Goodwell Kaluba, the general secretary of the National Union of Mining and Allied Workers (Numaw):"Our employees demand their labor rights to work for eight hours in a day, but the Chinese laborers can work for 12 hours without complaining. So they (Chinese firms) prefer to use their people, claiming they have some deadlines to meet."-- Commerce and Trade Minister Felix Mutati, defending the government's policy on the employment of the Chinese:"The Chinese have the technology, the speed and they are cost-effective. The UK finds it cost-effective to use the Chinese for (construction), so why should we be left behind? We better fly with the rest of the world."
How is china helping to produce independence for african people when they are exploiting their own people in china? How are we so naive in 2012. Has history taught us nothing. China is amassing land and property in Africa and aren't even offerring the best jobs to the african people. They are taking the resources and profits back to china to benefit themselves. They are no better or different than the americans and europeans.
