I am a Cameroonian who had lived both in China and Europe and know the Chinese are exploitative, but then I like their presence in Cameroon and Africa as a whole. There should be competition.I say so because Chinese are amazing in construction,and they accept cheaper contracts than their European counterparts,and still do effective work. What we need in Cameroon is not lones, we need raods,agriculture, in short infrastructure to empower development. Chinese are giving lones in terms of construction work that will benefit the entire masses, not physical cash that the African leaders will still take it back to European banks the next morning.The old roads and railways in Cameroon today were constructed by the Germans. If Europe wants to help Africa, they should put in place a law that will channel and frozen any money put into European banks by African top government officials and sent back to Africa for agriculture, health, education, and infrastructure.
