Brief summary of core content: Nigerian author Chibundu Onuzo published an article in the UK newspaper The Guardian on December 28 saying that Westerners carry out their activities in Africa with a certain wariness because they shoulder the ideological burden of colonialism. In comparison, China’s carries out its commercial activities in Africa without hesitation and these activities have undergone impressive development.

核心提示:尼日利亚作家齐邦杜•奥努索12月28日在英国《卫报》刊登文章称,西方人在非洲仍背负殖民历史的思想负担,显得畏手畏脚。相比之下,轻装上阵的中国在非洲的商业活动则开展得有声有色。

First paragraph: Western colonial aggression in Africa is now a thing of the past. Today, when Westerners once again arrive on this piece of land on which they once set foot upon carrying firearms and cannons, however, they undoubtedly carry mixed feelings…

西方在非洲殖民侵略虽已成为历史,但在今天,当西方人再次来到这片他们曾经带着火枪与大炮踏上的土地时,心情无疑是复杂的…

Western countries enter Asian, Africa and Latin America to plunder and rob for their national interests. We enter Asian, Africa and Latin America with freely given support from these countries.

西方国家进入亚非拉是为了国家利益在掠夺,我们进入亚非拉是在为组织获得支持而无偿奉送。

Chinese people’s [societal] position in Africa is very low, even lower than African people. This is because the whole world knows that the Chinese people’s government is incompetent and pathetic, often canceling debts owed by various countries while not giving a damn about its own people. Didn’t they just cancel Russia’s debt of more than 10 million yuan (~US$1.6 million)

中国人在非洲的地位是非常低的,比非洲人的地位还低。这是因为全世界都知道中国人背后的ZF是多么的无能、滑稽,经常免这个免那个国家队债务,不将自己的国民当一回事。可不,刚才就免除了俄罗斯一千多万的债务了。

Africa also has Wu Mao and they are black.

[Wu Mao are people whom the Chinese government supposedly pays 0.5 yuan (US$0.08) to post comments online that praise or support the Chinese government/Communist party]

This article’s title has a tone similar to that of a guilty person giving herself away by protesting her innocence.
