Did You Know: China Leads The World In 25 Agricultural Products

By Juma / December 7, 2019 | 8:00 am




In Africa, China is only known for giving African countries loans and taking part in mega infrastructural projects such as the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) in Kenya.

In Kenya, China is the largest lender and is part of Kenya’s ballooning public debt that is now above 6.5 trillion shillings, with every Kenyan owing creditors at least 180,000 shillings.

China has been accused of using expensive loans as a way to trap African states and then colonize them by taking over major projects and even the running of governments.

China is the major financier of Kenya’s Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) which has never made any profit since its inception but the government insists that Kenyans should imagine and feel the benefits.
