China Takes Control of Uganda’s ONLY Airport

Uganda lost control of its only international airport to China, after failing to repay their loan and this scenario is repeating itself throughout the 10/40 Window where BTJ missionaries are serving.

Entebbe International Airport is now in the hands of China, after the government in Uganda failed to repay their loan.

As a part of China’s ‘One Belt–One Road strategy’, China lent Uganda more than $200 million and now when the government cannot repay it, China is taking their airport as collateral.

This is happening throughout the 10/40 Window; the area with the highest concentration of unreached people groups in the world. China has given massive loans to poor nations in exchange for resources – like land, mining rights, port access, etc. When the country defaults on the loan, China then takes control of the resources that have been signed over as collateral. Many observers have said that this has been China’s goal all along. China holds one of the largest reserves of US dollars in the world and when those dollars lose value from overprinting, China would like to be the one holding assets – not worthless paper.

Uganda is not the first to lose control of a major asset because they couldn’t repay a loan to China.

Sri Lanka participated in a loan promoted by the ‘One Belt–One Road’ initiative and signed over one of their largest sea ports as collateral. When Sri Lanka defaulted on the loan, China took control of the port.

Zambia lost their power grid to China, as well as much of their copper fields. Dijibouti lost land and that land became China’s first overseas military base. In Cambodia, as the nation grows more indebted to China, the Chinese government has already started to build their own city near the capital.

Though it could be interesting for Chinese missionaries traveling to Uganda to land in an airport run by China, it could also have an adverse impact on Chinese missionaries. If the trend continues, it could lead to China being viewed as a neo-colonialist state in the years to come.

Dr. Eugene Bach is a known trouble-maker with an active imagination and sinful past. He has a PhD, but is not a real doctor, so please do not call for him during a medical emergency on an airplane when someone is having a heart attack. Eugene started working for Back to Jerusalem in the year 2000 after a backroom deal involving Chinese spies, the NRA, Swiss bankers, and a small group of Apostolic Christians that only baptize in Jesus’ name. He spends most of his time in closed countries attempting to topple governments by proclaiming the name of Jesus and not taking showers. From time-to-time he pretends to be a writer. He is not good at it, but everyone around him tries to humor him.

    We know the “Kings of the East” hold a place of prominence in the End Times so Asian expansion (especially Chinese) is not a surprise. It certainly heralds prophetic fulfillment. Africa and other poorer nations are becoming China’s “China” from an American economic perspective… we taught China well. America was interested in materialism, China has added control and influence to their recipe. Motive is everything.
