China's role in Liberia
Written By Bernard Gbayee Goah
President, Operation We Care for Liberia
Neo Colonialism - (Go in, pay off the Liberian President and opinion leaders, take as many natural resources as you can and return to China leaving the Liberian people nothing).
So, how does it work?
1.Careless about democracy and human rights in Liberia.
2.Undermine US loans and grants policy towards Africa that uses good governance, accountability, and Human Rights as a prerequisite by giving loans to Liberia through a select few in power, but with no conditions attached.
3.Engage in cheap quick fix projects that are easily visible to the public but not durable
4.Ignore the Liberalization policy by bringing in Chinese to work on these quick fix projects.
5.Stay away from Liberian politics
Liberians must speak out and condemn the role of China in Liberia now. Otherwise, there will be nothing left in Liberia to protect.
