China Is Opening Police Stations And Bases Across Africa

China Police Stations Africa

The opening of the 13th Chinese Community and Police Co-Operation Center in South Africa has sparked concerns about China’s growing influence in various institutions across the continent of Africa. China is now opening police stations in Africa.

On Oct. 28 in 2018 several dignitaries gathered in Port Elizabeth to celebrate the opening of the new center, which was established to improve relation and communication between South African police and the local Chinese community, the Daily Dispatch reported.

The 3rd Term opening of the Chinese Language Training Program, which teaches law enforcement officers to speak Mandarin, was also celebrated.

“My confidence is also derived from the long term economic relations our country has with the Republic of China,” Ntshinga said in her remarks.

“With the strengthened and deepened relationship between South Africa and China, the (South African Police Service) SAPS has benefited by finding its role in order to further the existing relationship within the police and the Chinese community.”

She continued: “This relationship has also found its expression in the educational programs involving our police members. I congratulate the Chinese community for the noble initiative established in the Province and Clusters in Port Elizabeth.”

China would never allow an African police station in its country. The nation is known for its hostile stance on African immigration & widespread racism.

Did Africa learn nothing from colonialism?

So why would African nations allow China or any other nation for that fact to open police stations within their borders?

China may not be chopping off hands or underdeveloping Africa, but we know that in addition to trade, aid, and debt-trap diplomacy to exploit the continent. There are always three phases to colonization:

Phase 1: Merchantile Diplomacy

Colonizers enter a nation as diplomats and traders. They establish diplomatic ties with target nations on the basis of trade.

Phase 2: Militarization

Colonizers justify establishing a military or police presence within the borders of their target nation since “there are Chinese nationals here who we must protect!”

This is the phase that Africa – China relations have just entered.

China says it will increase its military presence in Africa: In Djibouti, where Chinese companies have constructed strategic ports and Africa’s first electric transnational railway, Beijing last year formally launched its first overseas military base, which also operates as a logistics and intelligence facility.

Many experts now anticipate more Chinese bases in the years to come, with Namibia rumored as a potential location.

Phase 3: Suzerain

With the economy now under their control and a strong military presence in the borders of their target country, Colonists turn the target nation into a suzerain, a nation that is allowed to manage its own people, but with its policies under control of an external sovereign nation.

That is what makes this development so alarming. From Linda Ikeji:

The opening of the 13th Chinese Community and Police Co-Operation Center in South Africa last week has sparked concerns about China’s growing influence in various institutions across the continent of Africa.

Many top South African dignitaries gathered in Port Elizabeth to celebrate the opening of the new center, which was established to improve relation and communication between South African police and the local Chinese community.

The 3rd Term opening of the Chinese Language Training Program, which teaches law enforcement officers to speak Mandarin, was also celebrated.

However, Twitter celebrity, Julius Malema authored a post suggesting the Chinese were taking over by opening their own police stations. “Now China is opening police stations in South Africa.

They have already opened 13 & this one was opened yesterday in PE” Malema tweeted. See more reactions below:
