2014 – Africa and China

I feel that the leadership of China had a very specific plan with Africa but they totally underestimated the Africans. They felt they could instil and install certain of their plans and certain of their ways thereby harnessing Africa for their specific purposes, but they did not take the people of Africa into account. The wheels are coming off the Chinese leadership’s plans within the continent. They are realizing that the honour they are receiving is just lip service. They are presently re-evaluating their whole plan which has come into disarray. My sense is that the Chinese will be less involved in Africa in the future and they will be more respectful of Africa as the Africa nations
move away from the influence of a dictatorial spirit. They were hoping, due to the influence of a dictatorial spirit, that they could just harness and pocket a few people and then run Africa. As a result of the swell of democracy within these nations this has not materialized. They are viewed with suspicion within Africa and this has derailed their entire plan. Where China has been seen as a threat, they will increasingly withdraw from the African continent.
