Not true,do not deflect the problem towards the chinese.
Chinese did not overthrow African government or assassinate regime opponents.
European still steal africa natural resources, the best example is the french company AREVA, one of the largest uranium producer in the world,has been exploiting Niger uranium for decades , Niger is still the poorest country in the planet.

If you're an african,u just don't know how to read history.
Kenya was an english colony so it was invaded by the british.
Kenya did not gain independence until the sixties.
China never colonized Kenya,China never invaded Kenya.
So if you regret british occupation of Kenya, you' re not true son of Africa.
Talking about the recent China's economic interest in Africa,it i is perfectly legitimate,legal and peaceful.
If you're not biased, you would agree that indians own Kenya's economy.
They were brought by the british to subdue kenyans on the economic level, under the false pretext of cultiivating
Tea.

Right, they keep repeating the same propaganda Europeans telling them to sing ,focusing on China while forgetting about European exploitation for hundreds of years ,not even to mention slavery.

China never enslaved any African country,never colonized any African country, actually China helped most African countries to win their independence, help with arms ,training and money.

China also has the right to do business in Africa, do it legally with governments in place, so we can't blame China for doing business, China is a blessing for Africa ,not matter what the Europeans would say.

Simple answer is their too poor. When a country does not
have the money comparable to first world nations and very
few good jobs like Africa case it's going to be nearly
impossible for the people of Africa to exploit those resources.
