It was supposed to be a state-of-the-art city for 500,000 - but eerie footage shows how a Chinese-built urbanisation is at risk of becoming Africa's first 'ghost town'.
Constructed on the outskirts of Angola's capital city Luanda, Nova Cidade de Kilamba has 750 eight-storey blocks of flats, a dozen schools and more than 100 shop units.
But, crucially, it has no residents, and many of the nearby slum-dwellers cannot afford the £75,000 price-tag to move in.
This has sparked fears the £2.2billion project, a fraction of the cash China has poured into Africa in recent years, could lay abandoned for years to come.
It has also highlighted the increasing 'colonisation' of Africa by China, seen to be wanting the resource-rich continent as a 'satellite state', in recent years.
It is said to be reminiscent of the West's imperial push in the 18th and 19th centuries, with critics pointing to trade deals with more than 40 countries.
They also flag up the provision of billions each year in loans to states on the continent, which extends China's political as well as its economic influence.
It is seeing local black workers either paid a pittance or pushed out completely in favour of Chinese labourers. And African shops are now flooded with cheap Chinese products.
Sebastiao Antonio, 17, who travels on a bus from an outlying area for three hours a day to get to one of the opened schools, told the BBC: 'I really like this place.
Brand new houses, empty, waiting on what?

Vast sized cites built by Chine in Africa, real reason?
Note the coloured areas, why
Empty sporting arenas
The text above was a copy and paste from a source I found online, but why is China paying billions of dollars to buy desert land in Africa to build super cities? The obvious reason is “China is over populated” But how is this going to go down with the international committee when and if China starts moving some of its population to Africa.
I took exerts from various sites above, are they to be believed, I have no idea, but the facts are, it is happening, and happening fast and on a scale that is hard to keep up.
All I am looking for here, again is debate and logical thinking and reasons why?
