Sam Pa is a mysterious man, largely unknown to the outside world. Yet this man, who goes by at least 7 different aliases, represents the nefarious side of China's engagement in Africa. Sam Pa and his associates in the Hong Kong-based consortium known as the 88 Queensway Group represent a new breed of predatory investors who work in the shadows to close billions of dollars in questionable deals that have no oversight of any kind. New information about Sam Pa, the Queensway Group and shadow Chinese investors in Africa is now available in a detailed research report published by the US government funded Africa Center for Strategic Studies. ACSS Research Associate J.R. Mailey is the author of the report and joins Eric and Cobus to share shed light on the dark side of these Chinese investors in Africa.
