Why is anybody anywhere? Why do each of us get up in the morning? What is the purpose?

Yes. And now that some African countries are finding that Chinese investment has too high a price tag...I think one country just canceled a big airport project that was proposed by the Chinese due to the potentially balloooning debt.

The Dr. Mumbi Show has some interesting, and informed (She does her research and the "Dr." title is genuine), speculation about China's reasons for being in Africa (Control); its plans for global expansion with current intrusion into European ports (Control); and its recent increase of its military forces (Control).

The video is short, but on target:
China Threatens Kenya Over Fish Ban! ��


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6_khFwji2zs

In a very much related issue (Control) and not off-topic, look at this from NPR:

Concerns Grow Over China's Influence On European Ports

Increasing their sphere of influence, making money, making allies, exploiting Africa’s resources, next.

Same reason any country would ever do business with any other country.

I'm glad that I found another viewer of Dr. Mumbi for news. I have no clue what that leadership is doing. The Mombasa port is about to be lost to China as well as the fishing industry of Somalia. The people aren't getting anything in return. China is no friend to the people of Africa and could be worse than the European.

For the same reason why the US is in the Middle East and much of Asia. Natural resources and influence.
