We all attacked Zambia when news broke out a few weeks ago that they approved a Chinese Unit in the country's military. The government could not handle the attacks and criticisms from citizens and concerned Africans around the continent and in diaspora, that they had to disband the unit.
Just when we were thinking that China's influence in Africa centers around trade alone, a video surfaces of Chinese nationals singing in a bus with Zimbabwe military personnels.
Could it be that Zimbabwe has taken the podium and announced to the world that indeed Africa is meat waiting to be eaten - a continent that is ready to surrender her military, resources and future?
Has Zimbabwe approved the recruitment of Chinese nationals in its military?
The Video doesn't give much details, so we can only ask the right questions while hoping that our fears are not the case.
You will recall that Pan-African activists, notable among whom are Professor PLO Lumumba - the renowned Kenyan Legal Luminary, and Samia Yaba Christina Nkrumah - daughter of African independence hero, Kwame Nkrumah, have continued to warn that China's major interest in Africa is her military.
According to them, through control of the military and resources in Africa, China will have a huge advantage in achieving her goals of becoming a world power against Europe and America - an ambition which the Asian giants are not shy to admit.
In your opinion, what do you think about this video?
Do you think Zimbabwe recruited these Chinese nationals into its military or is it just a harmless collaboration um exchange program?
