ChinaFlagCWritten by Dr. Dries Velthuizen

The ongoing debates about whether Chinese involvement in Africa is a blessing or a curse varies between proponents of Chinese involvement as an alternative to Western domination in Africa to arguments that Chinese involvement is just a new form of colonising and exploiting Africa.

MOSCOW, November 20, 2011 (Buziness Africa) - Nigeria recently marked the Golden jubilee of her political independence.

Ifeagwu as the Head. Both countries have since then always maintained cordial political, economic and human relationships, although not without some coldness and dislike.
