Nairobi-based international development economist Anzetse Were suggests in a new paper for the South African Institute of International Affairs that Kenya's leaders, not China, should be the ones held accountable for borrowing too much money without a detailed, transparent plan on how to repay the loans.

She joins Eric & Cobus to discuss the growing anti-Chinese backlash in Kenya and the country's' burgeoning economic crisis. 

Join the discussion. Do you agree with Anzetse that African and Western critics of China's loans in Africa have it all wrong and that the burden of responsibility is with those in African capitals rather than in Beijing? Let us know what you think.
