China continues its African business and cultural charm offensive. In Kenya, a $200 million ring road around Nairobi is being built and partly financed by Beijing. The international airport is undergoing a $208 million expansion supported by the Chinese, whose loans also paid for a working-class housing complex that residents have nicknamed the Great Wall apartments. But the thing ordinary Africans notice most is the new presence of English language radio and television from the Chinese state broadcaster, CCTV. Earlier this year, CCTV Africa launched a live broadcast and now it's said Beijing plans to add an hour to prime time satellite service. Jackal News
