China and Russia's Propaganda Assault on Africa

 The Daily Maverick published on 27 March 2023 a commentary titled "Media Capture and Information Laundering--China and Russia's Propaganda Assault on Africa" by Herman Wasserman, Stellenbosch University.  

The governments of China and Russia have been working hard to frame information in Africa to fit their policies and interests.  Increasingly, this communication includes fake narratives and amplified conspiracy theories.
