Yu-Shan Wu, a researcher at the Africa-China Research Project at Wits University joins Eric and Cobus this week to discuss a recent paper that she co-wrote with Cobus and professor Chris Alden from the London School of Economics about Africa's role, or agency, in the ongoing debt trap debate.

Join the discussion. How do you see Africa's positioning in this discussion? Do you agree with the Western narrative that African leaders are being victimized by predatory Chinese lending practices or do you think they have agency and are acting rationally in their country's national interest? Let us know what you think.
