CCTV Africa multimedia journalist Clementine Logan recently completed a series of special reports from the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo. Part of her assignment was to report on the increasingly large presence of Chinese soldiers assigned to the UN peacekeeping effort there, which until now, has received surprisingly little international media coverage. Clementine joins us to discuss her recent assignment to the DRC and the growing role of blue-helmeted PLA staff operating in the region.
Clementine Logan is a multimedia journalist for China Central Television based at the network’s Africa headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya. She is a general assignment correspondent who has reported from across the continent including Chad, South Sudan and most recently in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Prior to her arrival at CCTV in Kenya, Clementine was a Paris-based journalist for the French international television network FRANCE 24. She is fluent in both English and French.
