Beijing is often a step ahead of Washington in Africa, as Secretary of State Tillerson is likely to find out this week. But China’s not exactly winning friends

BRENDON HONG

... With the archetype of the Chinese Savior firmly established, attitudes within China are showing a lack of racial sensitivity at best, and a sense of superiority over other races at worst.

By Aaron Maasho

Reuters

... If a government accepts a Chinese loan and "gets into trouble", he said, it can "lose control of its own infrastructure or its own resources through default." He did not give examples.

Africa should treat Rex Tillerson visit with skepticism

By John J Stremlau, University of the Witwatersrand

... To be fair, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, is eloquent in endorsing active diplomacy over military means in preventing and resolving conflicts.

... "Chinese investment does have the potential to address Africa's infrastructure gap, but its approach has led to mounting debt and few if any jobs in most countries," said Tillerson. "When coupled with political and fiscal pressure, this endangers Africa's natural resources and its long-term economic and political stability."
