Interview with China's ambassador to Kenya

China is Kenya's biggest trading partner but the East African country has been borrowing a lot from the Asian giant to fund its infrastructure projects, this has created a lot of concern that Kenya is borrowing beyond its means. I asked China's Ambassador to Kenya, Wu Peng about the funding for the second phase of the Standard Gauge Railway - China's largest funded project in the country- whose viability is being questioned. The interview also covers debt trap diplomacy, funding for the Lamu coal power plant, trade imbalance and more.
