Is Africa seeing the second coming of colonialism in the form of loans from China? Three African countries including Kenya, Angola and Zambia have a combined debt of $143 billion to the Eastern power, and Kenya seems to be on track to default on payment. The Blue Nile Dam is possibly the biggest African story in 20 years, with the geopolitical ramifications for Sudan, Egypt and Ethiopia being considered by the White House and UN Security Council. As Kenya enters a delicate political time, the tragic mall attacks seem to be coming to court within the coming week, and that act of terror may finally be laid to rest.
