    The president-elect’s seeming antipathy for African-Americans and Africa itself concerns many who saw Hillary Clinton as more engaged with the continent.

    Zimbabwe’s Central Mashonaland province once produced abundant quantities of high-quality tobacco. Production then dropped heavily when Zimbabwean politicians took control of the farms and neglected the lands. But this may change, as Mugabe recently leased five large farms in the area to Chinese entrepreneurs. This development may increase tobacco production and help uplift the local economy.

    China is South Sudan’s last best hope. Given the interminable bloodletting and brutal fratricide that engulfs Africa’s youngest nation, and given the inability of the African Union and United States to broker an effective peace, intervention and assistance by China may provide South Sudan with its only viable lifeline.

    In mid-March, Mainland China and the Gambia re-opened official links that had been severed since 1995 when the Gambia recognized the Republic of China (Taiwan) instead of the People’s Republic of China (PRC). China will have undoubted leverage for boosting the Gambia’s economic growth.

    Beijing employs economic and diplomatic tools to promote security in Africa while Western countries tend to rely on military means. While international pundits often anticipate Chinese military action in Africa, the country believes in non-interference in external affairs, with officials citing history’s record that military interventions generally become part of the problem, not the solution.

    Western fears of Chinese domination in Africa appear overblown. African peoples have benefited economically, but unevenly; African dictators sometimes have benefited politically, though not crucially.
