Cholera Moves From Zimbabwe To Other African Nations

Nations in southern regions of Africa increasingly are concerned about the spread of cholera from Zimbabwe. The Zimbabwean government is led by tyrannical Robert Mugabe whose concern for power is more important than the lives of the population. There was no cholera last year,but Mugabe made the choice of destroying his opponent in order to maintain power. Latest reports indicate that 2,100 have died of cholera and the number of cases continues to rise. Unfortunately, cholera is now spreading to Zambia and South Africa. Zambia hs seen 2,108 cases of cholera due to the madness that envelops Zimbabwe.

South African health officials say they are now encountering cases of cholera that must have originated in Zimbabwe. Former president Mibeki refused for months to exert pressure on his close friend, Robert Mugabe, and the result is that South Africans now face a cholera problem. Until nations of Africa unite to end tyranny, there will always be issues of disease caused by human ineptitude.

China In Afrca Economically-US In Iraq, Militarily!

During the past few years while the United States pursues its military ventures in Iraq and Afghanistan, the government of China has been actively pursuing its own ventures, economic that is, in many parts of Africa. The Chinese goal is to initially create five economic zones in parts of Africa in which they will heavily invest money and seek to tie the area to the Chinese market. Zambia has already been identified as one such zone and the mining area around the town of Chambishi will receive $800 million from China for economic development purposes. Tanzania has also been identified as a second China-Africa economic zone and it will receive $500 million. Cape Verde’ government is seeking to become a third economic zone and even major nations like Nigeria are in early stages of discussions with China about becoming economic areas tied to the Asian market.

The Chinese government has a five year plan to create five such economic zones in Africa. It is no wonder, China prefers America being tied down with military ventures in the Middle East which allows other nations to become economically invested in developing the future of Africa. There are those who still believe military expeditions add to a nation’s wealth, the evidence of China in Africa proves the reverse. Avoid military expenditures and invest your resources in economic development is a Chinese approach which is proving successful.
