SADC executive secretary Stergomena Lawrence Tax said African countries should take the blame for signing unbalanced deals with China.
She said this while addressing the media Friday after a two-day visit to Harare where she had occasion to tour the regional body’s peace keeping centre and Interpol Regional Bureau. Said Tax:
History can repeat itself if we allow it to. The only way is to be prepared when we get to the negotiation table. If you are not prepared, you should not blame the Chinese. You should not blame the Americans or Europeans. You should blame yourself…there is no reason to worry about China.
