More on China in the Sahel

The comments on this post at Sahel Blog are fascinating. Gem from an ostensible citizen of Lagos, Nigeria:

I don’t think the Chinese are my friends, but they make my life better. I can afford to buy a $150 Chinese generator and my cousin in the village can afford a $200 Chinese motorcycle. He can use the proceeds for his motorcycle taxi business to feed his family and send his little boy to school.
