LUSAKA (Reuters) – Africa must beware of "new colonialism" as China expands ties there and focus instead on partners able to help build productive capacity on the continent, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said.

Clinton, asked in a television interview in Zambia on Saturday about China's rising influence on the continent, said Africans should be wary of friends who only deal with elites.

China rejects Clinton’s ‘new colonialism’ rantings in Zambia

Chinese analysts have dismissed a statement by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that warned Africa to be wary of “new colonialism” as China expands its ties in the continent, saying that trade and economic cooperation between China and African countries are conducted on the basis of mutual benefit.

Every time you think these politricksters cannot possibly reach any lower depths of utter hypocrisy, they go and outdo themselves. Mind you, I agree that China are the new colonialists (India's getting in on it too) but that hardly means we should stop focusing on the old colonialists. PS don't have time to look for it now, but there was an article I read the other day about how Harvard University, among others, are buying up vast tracks of agricultural land in Africa which will displace many thousands of people and increase food insecurity - will look for it and post when I get the chance, unless someone beats me to it.
