China's growing presence in Africa is one of the region's biggest stories, but even seasoned analysts cannot decide whether this booming relationship is good or bad for Africa.

The Chinese have no respect for ecosystems or environmental impact.

They're proposing an enormous port near Lamu, Kenya, which will destroy thousands of acres of mangroves and everything which depend on them.

They want to establish themselves there in order to transport goods....and to HELL with the environment!

China can't even be good to itself.

Africa has endured far more exploitation by imperialistic powers bent on colonialism, theft of resources, and war than any other continent. China needs to stay out of Africa, but let's not let the US and the military forces that it has on that continent get a blank pass either.The long tragic history of the African continent cannot truly begin to heal until it is free from the forces of exploitation and terror that the major powers continue to place there.

China is the most despotic country on this planet. It has no moral ethics pertaining to humans or animals. The country is full of greedy, selfish, cruel people whose only aim in life is to destroy anything and everything in its path. The country has no compassion or empathy towards any other living species that inhabit this earth, wether they walk, crawl, swim or fly. All species are abused, tortured, tormented, eaten or their body parts used in any shape or form, nothing is spared, nothing is given any respect, nothing matters.

China is a totalitarian nation. The Chinese Communist Party crushes any opposition to its rule. I suspect that China will exploit whatever resources are available in Africa and then do the same to other developing regions.

Can't be any worse than the West, who have only been interested in exploiting African nations and encouraging wars and "rebellions" under the pretence of promoting decmocracy and freedom, but in reality to shore up the West's biggest business - arms sales.

China is not even good for China. The only thing they do is destroy, pollute and exploit.

China is the worst country on the face of the planet for any and all wild animals. They don't need to get their fingers and further into Africa.
