China's three-pronged approach towards African Colonisation

Africa’s sovereignty at risk due to Chinese Police Stations, Security Firms and Military Bases

Africa’s sovereignty at risk due to Chinese Police Stations, Security Firms and Military Bases Since 2012, over 200K Chinese workers have migrated to Africa to work on the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).  The number of Chinese immigrants on the continent is over 1 million. The number of Chinese companies operating in Africa is over 10,000, including over 2,000 state-owned enterprises (SOEs).  However, the Africans are paying a hefty price for this: their SOVEREIGNTY. This investigative report reveals some of the darkest secrets of African BRI and how their sovereignty is at risk. The Chinese Police Stations Ij-Reportika published a story on Chinese overseas Police stations and legal firms worldwide. The report got the attention of the world media. Many countries like the USA, Ireland, and Canada started probing these stations. “These overseas police stations have been set up to antagonize China’s adversaries. Not only this, but with the help of these police posts, the Chinese government is also influencing the elections in the respective countries. Furthermore, these stations are controlling the activities of the Overseas Chinese Diaspora and espionage cases have also been reported.” Chinese overseas Police stations report by Ij-Reportika African countries are also in the garb of similar overseas Chinese operations. The following countries have reported the presence of these police stations within their territories: S.no Country City 1 Nigeria Benin City 2 Lesotho Maseru 3 Tanzania Dar es Salaam African cities with Chinese Police Stations FUZHOU Police operates police stations in Lesotho and Nigeria and QINGTIAN Police in Tanzania. Our South Asia Analyst, Hwa-Young revealed that both Fuzhou and Qingtian are in proximity to Taiwan, and these police stations keep a tab on any activities involving Taiwan in other countries. The police stations also oversee the movement of goods like illegally traded wildlife products and smuggled African raw materials to Shipping ports of Fuzhou and Qintian from African coasts and drugs such as Fentanyl from China to Africa. The Chinese Security Firms in Africa Not only the state-run police stations, but China has also established a network of state-controlled Private Security Companies (PSCs) in Africa to supposedly safeguard the Chinese working on the BRI from attacks by the native Africans. The safety of its assets and securing sea routes, threatened by piracy along the African coasts, provided China a pretext for ‘interference’ in Africa through its PSCs. In recent times, Chinese interests in Africa have been experiencing threats due to conflicts with locals. Organized crimes such as illegal wildlife trade for Traditional Chinese Medicines have seen the involvement of Chinese nationals giving rise to conflicts. Further, BRI is misused by the PSCs to enhance their footprint in Africa. Here is a series of maps of the presence of Chinese PSCs in African countries. Military Bases As per a 2021 report of the US Department of Defence, China ‘may have considered’ military installations in 13 African countries, including Angola, Kenya, Seychelles, Namibia and Tanzania to expand its military footprint. Meanwhile, China has established a naval base in Djibouti to station a ‘Rapid Reaction Force’ for covering Africa. The base has the capacity to house 10,000 soldiers against the provision of deployment of 1000 soldiers in the Chinese-Djiboutian Agreement. In August 2021, China announced its intent to build its first naval base on the Atlantic coast at Bata in Equatorial Guinea, to look after its oil and commercial interests along West coast of Africa. If these bases are also materialized, Most of the African countries will lose their sovereignty forever!! Chinese investments in Africa and connection with the military bases According to the China-Africa Research Initiative, China has lent more than $155 billion to African governments to finance BRI projects. According to The Heritage Foundation, China has built nearly 200 government buildings in over 40 African countries, developed 70% of the continent’s 4G networks, and even built sensitive intra-governmental communications networks for 14 countries. China even fully financed the African Union (AU) headquarters in Ethiopia. In 2018, President Xi Jinping announced the creation of a $60 billion pot of Chinese money specially earmarked for development projects in Africa. Long story short: China is supplying the money that Africa badly needs with vicious long-term plans. These investments are excellent for the development of Africa but worst for its sovereignty. If Xi wants to locate a new military base on the continent, he is likely to find a host of national leaders who are more than happy to welcome him. This is where the crux of the problem lies.

Chinese overseas police service stations

China opening Chinese Police Stations outside its territory

The spread of Chinese overseas police service stations around the world raises concerns among human rights campaigners. The Chinese government is opening illegal police posts all over the world. China claims that these posts are capable of cracking down on global and multinational crimes. These checkpoints have been opened in many countries around the world including developed countries like Canada and Ireland. According to local media reports, Fuzhou has established informal police service stations affiliated with the Public Security Bureau (PSB) across Canada. At least three of these stations are located in the Greater Toronto Area only. The presence of similar Chinese police posts has also come to the fore in Dublin, Ireland. These outposts are not only illegal but have been set up to antagonize China’s adversaries. Not only this, but with the help of these police posts, the Chinese government is also influencing the elections in the respective countries. Furthermore, these stations are controlling the activities of the Overseas Chinese Diaspora and espionage cases have also been reported. The Fuzhou police says it has already opened 30 such stations in 21 countries. Other Chinese cities and provinces also operate their own stations. The police stations are set up to help Chinese citizens living abroad file local police reports and aid in other bureaucratic processes. According to Chinese state-affiliated media, the “Police service stations” force alleged Chinese criminals to be sent back to China. The organization Safeguard Defenders claims that over 230,000 people have been sent to China through these unofficial negotiations. 110 is the emergency phone number in China, much like 911 and 112 in the US and EU respectively. The Fuzhou city police operation out of Fujian province uses the name “110 Overseas” for its campaign, while other police jurisdictions uses different names. The spread of the police stations The presence of these stations all over Europe and in Toronto (Canada) and New York (USA) has left security experts bewildered. Countries like Ukraine, France, Spain, Germany, and the UK have such arrangements for Chinese Police Stations. The leaders of most of these countries question the rise of China and its worsening human rights records on public platforms and are themselves a part of that issue. Following is a map of publicly documented Overseas Police Service Centers from FuzhouCounty and Qingtian County. In the Global South the presence of these stations can be seen in Brazil, Ecuador, Argentina, Chile, Nigeria, Tanzania, Lesotho, Uzbekistan, Mongolia, Cambodia, Brunei and even Japan!!
