Abstract:

The extent of Communist Chinese influence in Central Africa is obviously growing. Although Zambias president, Kenneth Kaunda, has indicated his concern about outside intervention in the affairs of his country, there is every reason to believe that the Chinese efforts will not go unrewarded. In building the Tan-Zam railroad between Tanzania and Zambia, the Chinese will assume greater prestige in that part of the world. It can be assumed that they will take full advantage of the situation to extend their Communist ideology, first in Central Africa and later in Southern Africa as the situation there permits. The United States must assume a more positive role in this area if China is to be thwarted in her ambitions to convert it to Communism. A strong program of economic and technological assistance is indicated. Author
