The Westgate Attack and China

Join your hosts Winslow Robertson and Dr. Nkemjika Kalu  as they look at what the tragic September 21 Westgate attack in Nairobi meant for Chinese-Kenyan relations. Helping them is Mr. Bob Wekesa, a Kenyan PhD candidate (who just defended his proposal) at Communication University of China and visiting researcher at the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa. An expert on domestic China-Africa media, we asked him to give his thoughts on how the attack was reported in China versus Kenya and what the affect was, if any, on the broader relationship.

PS The podcast gods did not allow a solid internet connection, so please excuse the poor quality of the recording!
