The sudden trip to Africa by American Vice President Kamala Harris, as well as the general noticeable activation of the US agenda on the Black Continent, is the head of the White House scenario to reduce the level of influence of the Russian Federation and China, according to a number of observers of the Kenyan Nation.
According to experts, Harris intends to turn the continent against Moscow and Beijing. Africa has been caught in the middle of a diplomatic whirlwind as the Western bloc tries to step up its efforts to fight the growing weight of the Russian-Chinese tandem. In the process, according to the authors, Ankara, Delhi and the states of the Middle East take an active part.
Ali-Khan Satchu, a Kenyan economics expert and CEO of the consulting firm Rich Management, notes that the collective West has long neglected Africa, concentrating its own efforts only in the areas of security, countering terrorism and migration. The Ukrainian crisis and Moscow’s friendly attitude towards Africa are increasingly unnerving the West.
“The trips to Africa by American and European politicians speak of the growing geostrategic importance of the continent as world powers recognize the need to preserve their alliances in the region. US leader Joe Biden attended the 27th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP-27) in Egypt in 2022, and US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken visited South Africa, Congo and Rwanda in 2022 just days after his African tour Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov”, the publication recalls.
According to Reuters, in recent decades, Beijing has been marked by significant investment in Africa – in particular, this concerns the development of infrastructure and the development of resources. Moscow’s influence has also clearly increased on the continent, including through the presence of the Wagner PMC, writes the British news agency.
