Ambassador Zhao said: “No Zimbabwean died in China due to Covid-19. We take good care of them. 29 Zimbabweans die of Covid-19 in UK.”
Former cabinet minister Prof. Jonathan Moyo fired a salvo: ” The racist Diplomat from racist China has deleted his offensive, outrageous and totally unacceptable tweet as if he does not know that the Internet, or rather @Twitter, does not forget. This @Zhaobaogang 2011 must go.”
Journalist Chin’ono joined the war saying:” The Chinese are not our friends, they are Zanu PF’s friends. This tweet shows how arrogant, ignorant and patronising he is, he thinks the stupidity shown by Zanu PF in their deals with China is similarly reflective of the whole nation.”
He added: “He forgets that all these people are dying because of the lying done by his country about Coronavirus.”
“Chinese looted our forex by bringing dollar for two substandard items that caused a lot of cancer and are destroying the environment through chrome mining.” said Innocent Mugwagwa.
The US and other European countries are accusing China and the World Health Organisation for withholding critical information about Covid-19 which caused deaths of 191 423 people in the world.
The Chinese diplomat does not understand that the majority of Zimbabweans enjoy cordial relations with the British and have deep hatred for the Chinese for propping Zanu PF and the alleged looting of diamonds and other minerals by Chinese companies.
