[AUDIO] A journalist’s view on reporting the China-Africa story

The US-based online news site Quartz is among a growing number of international media companies that is investing resources to better cover Africa. The company launched Quartz Africa in June 2015 with the opening of a new bureau in Nairobi and the deployment of a small team of journalists.

Among those assigned to Kenya was Lily Kuo who previously reported for Quartz from Hong Kong. As a former China-based journalist who now lives and reports on Africa, Lily is among the first reporters on the continent with a distinctive background in Sino-African relations. Although she doesn’t focus exclusively on China-Africa stories, it is most definitely a prominent theme of her coverage.

Lily joins Eric & Cobus to talk about the opportunity and challenges of covering the China/Africa story.
