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.

That is one of the most absurd things I've ever seen. unless china is going to help the locals with Financial Aid and help the country in general, no one is going to buy that stuff! It's a developing country not a sphere of influence. The same goes for Ireland and Spain and all those developed countries that have decided to build there.
