The Mandarin Express!

Pointe Noire, Democratic Republic of Congo
In less than a decade, Ke Qian Zhang, aformer journalist, and his wife Jessica have made their fortune in numerous sectors: restaurants, nightclubs, shops selling imported goods, a factory producing aluminum window frames, cement import, and logging.

A few weeks ago, I posted an entry on this blog regarding the presence of the Chinese in Africa........(http://kanmiiyanda.blogspot.com/2009/02/return-of-walter-rodney.html). CNN have now published some images (see above and the rest at link below) of the 'partnership'.

In my earlier entry, I was of the opinion as I still am, that it would end in tears for the ailing continent. My position is driven by a simple maxim; 'A sick man does not get better due to money spent on the hospital, rather, his condition may improve if the investment was directly spent on the equipment for his treatment.'

For the rest of images see link below:
