China takes on growing Africa role – Jill McGivering

From the BBC:

Zimbabwe’s political isolation has only hastened the process, as President Mugabe’s growing alienation from the West has created an economic vacuum that Beijing is rushing to fill.

China’s policy of non-interference in the political affairs of others, and a refusal to take other governments to task on issues of human rights and democracy, means it has no qualms about stepping in as other countries withdraw, whether in Zimbabwe or Sudan.
