CORRECTION.KENYAN REPORT HAS LEARNED THAT THE STORY BELOW WAS FALSE .THE VIDEO,WHICH IS IN FRENCH IS THAT OF A UNION LEADER IN GUINEA ADDRESSING WORKERS AND THEIR EMPLOYER.AND NOT THAT OF A CHINESE CITIZENS BEING ARRESTED AS PREVIOUSLY REPORTED. WE APOLOGIZE TO OUR READERS FOR INACCURATE INFORMATION.
According to a video making rounds on social media, the Guinean government has arrested Chinese citizens residing in the country until all its citizens safely return from china.
This is a first of its kind from an African country given the ongoing racial attacks and harassment of Africans in china by the Chinese people.
There has been social media outrage following these attacks. Videos of Africans being beaten, victimized and being discriminated against, continue to make rounds on social media. The Chinese government has denied these allegations despite videos showing the same.
Africans governments have done little beyond summoning the Chinese ambassadors in their countries. Some have even sided with china, blaming instead, the victims as “young people making a lot of noise”
McDonalds restaurants was forced to apologize after a sign barring Africans in china from entering the restaurant surfaced.
The current racial profiling against Africans should be a wake-up call for Africans and their leaders to come together and form a formidable force that will confront their challenges.
It appears as if African leaders have little solutions to offer to the current predicament. Their unquenchable appetite to Chinese loans is their undoing. They have literally sold their soul and that of their citizens.
African governments have borrowed heavily from china to finance capital projects. Africa’s total External debt is $417bn (£317bn) of which 20 % is owed to china. According to the China-Africa Research Initiative (CARI) at John Hopkins University, “Angola is the top recipient of Chinese loans, with $43.1 billion disbursed over 17 years”. As per CARI, “from 2000 to 2017, the Chinese government, banks and contractors signed US $146 billion in loan commitments to African governments and their state-owned enterprises (SOEs).”
Failure of African governments to make decisive response regarding attacks of Africans can lead to ordinary citizens taking matters into their own hands. Recently, Nigerian youths burnt a Chinese factory to protest Chinese racial attacks.
Its time Africans reawaken the Pan African Spirit and speak as one voice and hold our leaders to account. We have to revolutionize our thinking and stop our dependency of foreign government that don’t respect us.
