Chinese Business Tycoon Behind Lesotho Govt Takeover Scheme?

Lesotho-based Chinese business tycoon Yan Xie has revealed during an interview that he has donated money to "almost every party in the country" but dismissed allegations of state capture, saying this "was not even his intention". Yan Xie's statements come after analyst Nkareng Letsie said that government corruption has enabled the Chinese to capture Lesotho's economy "by bribing their way up".
