GRAPHIC PICTURE: ZCTU Demands Justice For 2 Employees Reportedly Shot By Chinese Employers

The Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) has demanded justice for two Zimbabwean workers who were reportedly shot and killed by their Chinese employers in Gweru.

The alleged tragedy was reported by MDC Alliance deputy spokesperson in the Youth Assembly, Womberai Nhende who posted on Twitter on the 21st of June 2020 saying they were shot over a salary dispute. He said:

A chinese national has shot and injured two natives in Gweru over a salary dispute. And no arrest has been made.

It is not clear as to when the incident happened. Responding to the post, ZCTU said:

The government has sold the country to China. Now the Chinese do as they pleased & illtreat Zimbabwean workers in our own country because they know we have no protection from the government. The liberators have turned our good country into a predator state. #justiceforworkers

There have been numerous reports of abuse of workers by Chinese employers in the country with some workers reportedly working in unsafe working environments and unsafe conditions.

Last year, Norton legislator, Temba Mliswa claimed that Chinese investors were not in compliance with health and safety rules, environmental laws, labour practices and all aspects of human rights.

  1. Just convince me countryman, are these Chinese an evolving arrogant breed that is holier or more human than the Zimbabwean, African or any other not them that they should both back home in China and right in our backyards in Zimbabwe and Africa inhumanly ill-treat US as such at this point of development of human civilization? I always thought China and its people constitute a developed civilization like Europe and others and not a primitive nation, full of ruthless hooligans as we all see right on OUR SOIL. Is Zimbabwe and Africa equally independent as to be accorded the deserved human dignity or yet another true liberation has to be waged in Zimbabwe and Africa against a seemingly creeping in brutal colonial culture propagated through Zimbabwean and African Chinese henchmen? Zimbabwean parliament should take a special bill on China as Nigeria and Ghana have done and have issues with China now at the UN Court of Justice, why buying time. Zimbabwe and Africa a great civilization must and will always rise to their self defence.
