The South African journal Ecquid Novi: African Journalism Studies has a special issue (v. 34, n. 3) on China and Africa. For the moment (and this likely won't last) the issue appears to be available for free. I haven't read all the articles yet, but I see several scholars I recognize, including Bob Weseka from Kenya who has written for this blog, and Iginio Gagliardone, who used "participant observation" to analyze CCTV in Africa.
