Africa: ''The Dragon's Gift for Africa''

From All Africa

"Scramble for Africa", "New Chinese imperialism," "Neo-colonialism", "New colonizer", "Trojan horse", "Yellow Peril", these are some of the terms the West racked their brains to tarnish China's aid to Africa in an attempt to systematically implant the notion of an enemy (China) in the minds of the African population as Benedict M Louw pointed out in New Era on 03 Aug 2012.
