China does business with South Africa on an equal footing, unlike Western former colonial powers who still act like its master, President Jacob Zuma has said.
"The countries that have been dealing with us before, particularly old economies, they've dealt with us as former subjects, as former colonial subjects," he said.
"The Chinese don't deal with us from that point of view. They deal with us as people that you must do business (with), at an equal level so to speak," Zuma told CNBC Africa in an interview broadcast Thursday.
