There's an extremely strong anti China and anti Russian bias. Not only I am getting downvotes, but people are also saying things that are completely false about news and reports from U.S. sources when they go against the narratives they choose to believe in (China is bad, is worse than the West) even if those things are not even related to the question, and they try to make China look bad every chance they get even if it's not even related to the question at all.
So you said
China doesn't own much of Africa's debt anyway
and you point to articles arguing that it's not a debt trap because in the authors' opinion China finances stuff not that different from what the World Bank did or does (like infrastructure).
In your mind the two issues ("doesn't own much of Africa's debt anyway" and debt trap) seem to be synonymous, but in others' they are not, e.g. WaPo writes:
As Africa's largest bilateral creditor, China holds at least 21 percent of African debt — and payments to China account for nearly 30 percent of 2021's debt service, as shown in the figure below. Angola alone accounts for almost a third.
Of course, one can quibble what percentage is "much".
