Zimbabwe’s Ambassador To China Condemns ‘Negative Media’ Amid Racism Row

Zimbabwe’s ambassador to China, Martin Chedondo, has said negative media is bent on spoiling China-Africa relations.

Chedondo urged the two parties to guard their unity of purpose by openly communicating in a spirit of trust and sincerity.

In an interview with Global Times this Friday, following reports that Chinese authorities and citizens racially abused Africans in Guangzhou, capital of south China’s Guangdong Province, Chedondo said:

Relations between China and Africa are strategic and mutual, have transcended generations and continue to deepen.

It is for this reason that negative media is waiting for any opportunity to drive wedges and spoil that relationship.

It is of fundamental importance for Africa and China to guard their unity of purpose and strive at all times to openly communicate in a spirit of trust and sincerity.

Chedondo’s remarks come on the back of Nigerian Foreign Minister, Geoffrey Onyeama and Namibian Ambassador to China, Elia Kaiyamo’s dismissal of reports that Africans are experiencing racist abuse in China.

  1. I gree with our diplomat. People tend to generalise issues especialy negative wise. You need a holistic aproach before jumping into negative and judgemental conclusions. Remember the chinese are not gods. They are humans like us with their own pressing challenges. They have to graple with illegal imigrants who may also be carrying the dreaded virus whatever race these might be. The authorities also have to content with part of the society which is uninformed, nevous and restless like other governments in the world. So there are many aspects to the mater.
