My boy, the west have been grabbing up African resources for decades.

Sure. Because the West was where the industry was that needed it. And that's involved a good deal of chicanery and bribery over the years by Western companies - and even governments. But the latter have been mostly easing off in recent decades and trying to curtail bribery from their corporations. I think we're going to find out that the way the Chinese government is going to act in Africa will be reminiscent of the worst excesses of the banana republic days of the US and Latin America.
