The years Li Xinfeng spent as a Chinese correspondent in South
Africa are evident in the insights he shares in China in Africa:
Following Zheng He's Footsteps - the narrative of his research into
the traces left by the famed navigator during his travels in and
around Africa. Beginning on Kenya's Pate Island, Li's research led
him to travel around much of the southern part of the African
continent, searching for signs that Zheng He's fleet had been there
some six centuries earlier. China in Africa: Following Zheng He's
Footsteps is more than just one person's quest to retrace the
journey of an alluring historical figure, shrouded in legend: Zheng
He has become an important symbol for the Chinese people and the
world of peace-loving cultural exchange in general. Li's
comprehensive research into the African travels of this iconic
figure presents a challenge to the postcolonial world, highlighting
the stark contrast between colonising and fair exchange for mutual
benefit. A consistent thread in the narrative is how best to
respond to the challenge of overturning the exploitation of
colonial relationships with friendly collaboration in modern times.
