China has been taking over Africa for decades.
I’ve posted before about this.
The bonus, the Chinese are predictable because it’s all about them and profit.

Zuma survives (another) no confidence vote. No comment needed – just shakin’ me head.August 23, 2017 at 4:44 pm #52176January 26, 2018 at 3:19 pm #59213
Wow. South Africa’s woes are continuing to spiral downward – Cape Town is about to entirely run out of water, apparently. Other than “move,” the rhetorical question is, “What does a huge population do when an entire city has no water?” I’ve seen nothing on this until just happening to see a tiny piece at the very bottom of the CNN home page headlined: “A major city will likely run out of water soon.” It’s tiny, and dwarfed by a much larger adjacent story about Patty Hurst’s kidnapping and bank robbery 44 years ago – obviously much more important.
And on that entire page, as it’s currently set up, the CNN home page has absolutely zero stories about the locating of the missing FBI text messages and their content. But we are treated to stories about the possible finding of America’s last possibly slave ship in Alabama, Stormy Daniels’ friend speaking out about Trump, and that “Trump is not getting along with his chief of staff — again.” But a major catastrophe brewing in once-beautiful South Africa? A tiny story at the very bottom of the page where no one will likely see it. Yes – read the “news” and be informed!January 29, 2018 at 4:09 am #59577
To get African news, one has to go to African sources. There’s no money in it here in the US.
And even then one has to dig through the allowed releases to get anything of value.
Comrade Bob is out, now nothing through the official sources. Dig.

Whirlibird (or others) – any word at all about Leopard or others that used to be here with us? I’m almost afraid to ask, but hoping someone has been able to keep in touch and knows that she (they) are safe – hopefully somewhere else much safer.January 29, 2018 at 1:38 pm #59595
Last I heard, was at least six months ago, but Leopard was doing fine.
Will check up on her and others.February 2, 2018 at 4:59 pm #60113
4/16 will be an interesting day in ZA.February 3, 2018 at 12:13 am #60114
Dropping the “water tank torture cell performance” from some show? That’s the “creative response” to a water shortage in a city of 4 million?

What’s also kind of amazing is the dearth of coverage on this issue, or for that matter, virtually anything coming out of Africa anymore. There’s more coverage of the “inauguration” of the alternative “President” of Kenya than there is about the dire circumstances for millions of people in SA. But then when we’re being inundated with non-stop coverage of what we already know about our own country – that the entire government is FUBAR – there’s little room for anything else. One wonders what else is flying under the radar that we aren’t being informed about – except of course the mandatory monitoring of some Kardashian pregnancy or not.February 14, 2018 at 10:25 pm #61065February 15, 2018 at 4:54 am #61066
Zuma may be out, but the ANC (commies) still have power.February 15, 2018 at 5:13 am #61067
Yeah, I noticed that – it was the party that told him to get out. So whoever comes next will be even more to their liking, of course. Trump’s language may not be appropriate for many people, but his description of some countries still pretty much nails it, S.A. included. No surprise the Chinese are so welcome there to plunder and get gain.February 15, 2018 at 3:58 pm #61076
Well, here it is:
Like Zuma, Ramaphosa rose to prominence as a young man fighting the white minority apartheid regime in the 1970s and 1980s. He went on to become a union leader and one of the nation’s wealthiest black business executives.
Seems like I remember Marx having something to say about unions in the tiny little 3/4 page final chapter of his Manifesto.
The above was later followed by:
Just as Ramaphosa was sworn in, a manhunt appeared to be underway for one of Zuma’s sons, who has been embroiled in a fraud case involving a large dairy farm.
Funny how politicians and their families, especially those that are[n’t] all about the people, seem to do so well financially on such meager government salaries….February 28, 2018 at 4:14 pm #61906
