This article is well written, this is what is happening in Sierra Leone, the chiness has taken over the business environment, getting all government contract and left the Sierra Leonean with nothing, and even bring worker from china and employ small portion from the country labour market. I think if the chinese want to really partner with African countries and invest, it should be à win-win situation, not a one way win. just as the Zambia president was saying to the China Ambassador. The China business is booming in Africa, because there is no stiff measures from either side and the corruption within the African governments. Politicians are benefiting from thèse business investment from the chinese investors. While China is exploiting our resources. Example is the cutting down of trees in our forest, which we are no experiencing change in our enviroments, cause all the trees has been cut down, exporting them to china, and there is no proper plan in place to restore the trees that are cut down. If was once show on Aljazeera about the timber trade in Sierra Leone.
