Quartz’s Africa correspondent Lily Kuo recently returned from a reporting assignment to Rwanda where she discovered a very different side of China’s engagement in Africa.

Lily joins Eric and Cobus to discuss why Rwanda is becoming an increasingly popular destination for Chinese money and migrants.
