China Influences African Media

South Africa's The Globe and Mail published on 9 October 2018 an article titled "China Flexes Its Political Muscles in Africa with Media Censorship, Academic Controls" by Geoffrey York.

The author reported that African governments and businesses, eager for Chinese funds, are increasingly willing to suppress or censor viewpoints that Beijing does not like. Backed by dramatically rising investment and loans, Chinese influence is sharply increasing in African media, academia, politics and diplomacy.
