The Big Rush for the Control of African Natural Resources

About the Book

In this book, I unveil the secrets of China's plan for Africa. You will learn why China, the US and some other global powers are investing in Africa, and why they want to take control of the continent. When you read this book, you will know whether Africa is gaining or is being ruined by this race. Is this race very different or the same as the scramble of the 19th century when colonial Britain and France went to draw materials, slaves and geopolitical influence in Africa? Read this book to find out everything!

A. B. Lawal

I am multi-talented. As an engineer and also a computer scientist, I have over 15 years of teaching experience in software development and machine learning. In the last few years I have helped the IT industry develop various useful programs on Windows, Linux, MacOS and PLCs (programmable logic controllers). I always build solutions from scratch and go as far as modifying open source software to meet my client’s needs. As an embedded systems expert, I design embedded Systems that optimize performance and cost against complex requirements. I leverage Stratify OS (a POSIX like RTOS for micro-controllers) to quickly and cost-effectively develop complex firmware applications in Python and C/C++ languages. I work with a dedicated team of Python programmers who look into specific automation problems and proffer solutions to them.
