China treats Africa as equal in dealings, says Paul Kagame.

Rwandan president Paul Kagame has defended China’s relations with Africa stating that the global economic giant treats Africa as equals in dealings between the two parties.

China’s economic relations with the continent has come under critical scrutiny with claims that Beijing continues to load Africa with loans that most country may struggle to repay.



Critics stress that the loans, with estimates ranging in the tens of billions of dollars could leave African nations with no choice but to hand over controlling stakes in strategic assets to the Chinese state.

China on its part has also repeatedly rejected that Sino-Africa deals were tilted in their favour. There has been a flood of Chinese investment across the continent especially in the area of construction. Chinese involvement in mining is also very expansive.
