A picture taken on January 3, 2013 in Nairobi shows a technician pulling a copy of Chinese owned newspaper, China Daily from the line to check for faults at a printing press in the Kenyan capital. Launched in December, the newspaper is Beijing’s latest venture on the continent and it aims to look in depth at what the precise nature of Chinese involvement in Africa is, and also at the prominent role many Africans are now playing in China itself, according to publisher and editor-in-chief of the state-run paper Zhu Ling. “The relationship between China and the African continent is one of the most significant relationships in the world today,” Ling wrote on a commentary in the inaugural copy.
