I am far more concerned at the rate they are taking over Africa, with a war, without shooting a single bullet.
Lending money, that they know the country cannot pay back. And then taking over assets for payment.
They control some of the biggest ports in east Africa and own most of the irrigation land along the lakes in the Nile system.
In a few years, most parts of Eastern Africa, will be in Chinese control. They will no longer be needing imports from the USA and Canada to supply them with soybeans and corn.
Our country is falling in the same trap, with a large part of our coal and metal reserves being sold of to china, with a direct train line, they plan to build to maputo harbor (which they control).
So don't know if a couple of cellphones is the real problem, it is a matter of concern, but I think there is a bigger problem waiting.
Nou wat nou?
