Chinese companies are building a superhighway in Kenya to help expand the economy. But there's a downside to the growing Chinese presence: an influx of counterfeit goods and a rise in poaching.

The main disadvantage is the likelihood of poaching imho. I do not give a toss about counterfeiting elitist goods. Every country which builds in another's territory has some self-seeking motive. There is good and bad in every nation. I hope the advantages outweigh the disadvantages for Kenya and its people.

"Will Kenyan Superhighway Also Benefit China?" if anyone imagines the Chinese will build a road just for plain altruistic reasons they need to take more water with their whiskey. The Chinese are rapidly running out of arable land as they pollute what remains with industrial waste. Africa always has the legendary begging hand thrust forth attached to crooked selfish politicians - a deal made in heaven for the Chinese!

It looks like the Chinese are more clever than America with all its superweapons.

Someone needs to stop this. I dont care if I sound like Bobby's mom from the Waterboy but China IS the devil! That effin communist government wants to control the world, and impoverished, helpless Africa is their first step towards doing that.
I'm extremely worried about the wildlife, but animals can be protected in reserves, its the needy people of Kenya who wont have any shelter to run to. If China prosectures, bullies and takes advantage of its own people, you dont think they would do the same to millions of Kenyans?

European has created the damage Africa is in today. Stop trying to blame the Chinese at least they are building things for the people. Although what they need is water getting pump to the surfaces that they can have to drink, this is the basic things of life. All what Europe has done is to suck these continent dry and take there resources. This has lead to people starving today and then every few years show them and make money off their backs. I visited Kenya a few years ago and came back traumatise for three months. I could not believe the poverty that I saw.
