A Dictator Installed by China in Solomon Islands

Solomon Islands Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare has not held onto power because of his popularity with the people, but despite it. This is thanks to the help of China, specifically Chinese money and security. This corrupt dictator has quashed protests, bribed his opponents, delayed elections and set the Solomon Islands up to become a military base for the Chinese Communist Party. In this episode of China Uncensored, we sit down with one of his former advisors, Celsus Talifilu, who later went to work for Sogovare's opposition, Daniel Suidani.
