Chinese Embassy Speaks On Chinese National Who Shot Employees In Gweru

The Chinese Embassy in Harare on Monday said the Chinese national who shot two employees in Gweru over a salary dispute must be openly investigated according to the law of Zimbabwe.

Reports suggest that on Sunday, Zhang Xuelin (41) allegedly shot two of his former workers Wendy Chikwaira (31) and Kennedy Tachiona (39) after the duo demanded their dues after being fired.

The incident sparked public outrage with the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) demanding justice for the duo.

In a statement, the Embassy said lawbreakers should not be protected. Read the statement in part:

Although this is an isolated incident and the embassy has no law enforcement authority over the enterprise, we firmly support Zimbabwe’s law enforcement agencies to transparently and openly investigate and handle the case in accordance with the law of Zimbabwe.

Any possible illegal acts and persons who violate the law should not be shielded.

It is reported that after misunderstandings, Zhang withdrew a 9mm pistol, shot and injured the two who were taken to a local private hospital where Tachiona is still admitted while Chikwaira was treated and released.

Reports suggest the accused was later arrested and is awaiting to appear in court on attempted murder charges.

  1. CHINESE are here to kill, they are the least friendliest people of the planet and don’t even know why our government allows them to run businesses in Zimbabwe. We need death penalty for such people, in China he would probably be hanged but here with rampant corruption, he is more likely to be released and do it again and again.
