Today’s Tweet comes from Ugandan journalist Sarah Kyobe who showcases how effective China’s outreach to African journalists has been quite effective in building goodwill. The Chinese government spends a considerable amount of money every year to pay for hundreds of African journalists and media professionals to visit China. Generally speaking, journalists like Sarah come back from these trips with a very different, often more positive outlook about the Chinese.
