Goodbye ( Uncle) Sam, hallo my Tjaaina... (vervolg: Vierde Hoofstuk)

So waai die wind, so waai my jas .... Obama kry sommer twee vlieë met een klap: versterk bande met RSA en Afrika, kry op die koop toe bietjie koestering in die Mandela-sonnetjie ...

Maar dit het glo niks met RSA se gevry na Tjaaina te doen nie:

Obama het darem die "olifant in die kamer" raakgesien ...:

China syndrome - 1 July 2013 -

The Citizen

China was the elephant in the room during some of the exchanges between President Jacob Zuma and his US counterpart Barack Obama over the weekend.
No self-respecting president would enjoy being told what to do by another country’s leader. So Zuma was correct to ask “why Africa should be told who its friends must be”.


Yet he will find there is considerable wisdom in the advice Obama delivered, without mentioning China.


While welcoming the attention that Africa is receiving “from countries like China, Brazil, India and Turkey”, Obama cautioned against possible exploitation.


“Make sure it’s a good deal for Africa,” he advised.


“Somebody says they want to come build something here: are they hiring African workers? Somebody says they want to help you develop your natural resources: how much of the money is staying in Africa? The profits stay there, the jobs stay there and not much stays in Africa.”


These were unsubtle digs at China’s preference to bring in its own labour and to squeeze local firms. Yet Zuma’s judgment in this may be clouded by China’s willingness to look after him and his family.

In hierdie artikel word China se bemoeienis in Afrika “beneficial exploitation” genoem ... nogal ‘n raak beskrywing!

Sjoe die lys artikels word al hoe langer!! Hier is nog een:

"Prof. Deon Geldenhuys van die Universiteit van Johannesburg, ’n kenner op die gebied van internasionale politiek, het gesê simbolies was dit ’n baie suksesvolle besoek. Obama was “meesterverkoopsman van Amerikaanse waardes en Amerikaanse ondernemings” en soos altyd “ ’n knap politieke akteur” en wat op sy stukke was in sy toesprake in Soweto en Kaapstad. GELDENHUYS BESKOU OBAMA SE BESOEK OOK AS DEEL VAN DIE IDEOLOGIESE WEDYWERING TUSSEN DIE WESTE (DIE VSA EN EUROPA) EN CHINA."
