This paper aims at analysing the bilateral relations between China and African countries while using Tanzania as the case study, in terms of trade, investments and aids. Significant interest has been directed on analysing the legal aspect and the jurisprudential view of the said Sino-Africa relationship, and how China has a huge impact upon the natural rights of the Africans and their democracy, which has not been discussed much by the scholars. Main focus is stressed on exploring how the Chinese are basically affecting the institutions of the African countries, and how they are responding to the demands and slavery agreements of the Chinese in the name of having bilateral relations and economic ties. The paper also reviews the reactions of the Africans, judiciary and other pillars of the government towards the investments and all the activities done by the Chinese government which are exploitative in nature and aim at infringing the human rights of the Africans. The research paper recommends actions to be taken by the legislature and African countries to cure the situation and address the legal issues of the relationship by adopting the necessary measures to enforce the local labour laws which conform to international standards. Also, an increase in fines and penalties for those corporations which break local laws as well as consider criminal prosecutions against supervisors who mistreat and abuse workers. Ministry of Labour should investigate anti-union activities by Chinese and other multinational companies as well as impose necessary sanctions against those threatening union representatives.
