Chinese workers in Zim ‘fake’,plunderers -Zanu PF MP

KWEKWE Central legislator Masango Matambanadzo (Zanu PF) yesterday described some Chinese nationals working in Zimbabwe as “fake” and only interested in plundering the country’s resources.

Matambanadzo said he had been in China where he interacted with “genuine” Chinese who are different from those in Zimbabwe.

The Kwekwe Central MP was among a group of legislators who early this year got stranded in the Asian country after missing the plane back home while on shopping spree.

Matambanadzo made the remarks during a Zimbabwe Environmental Law Association-organised Alternative Mining Indaba in Bulawayo when delegates were registering their displeasure at the mismanagement of some Community Share Ownership Trusts.

“We have to vet the Chinese who come to invest here,” said Matambanadzo.

“Others are just here to plunder resources. We should investigate where they are coming from and where their money is coming from.

“Some Chinese investors in Zimbabwe have partnerships with our ‘enemies’ such as the US and Britain. They are used as fronts. China is our best friend and we should support the Look East Policy as the President (Robert Mugabe) has said, but we should vet their investments.

“Maybe some of them are fronting companies for Americans, therefore, we have to be careful because some are mafia. Real Chinese invest in companies they operate in, but not some of these we have here,” he said amid applause from delegates.

Chief Zimunya had no kind words for the Chinese working in Chiadzwa saying they are a source of social problems in the area.

“I heard that they just relocate people from Chiadzwa to Arda Transau without the knowledge of the chief and they don’t even have the courtesy to inform us,” he said.

“They just desecrate graves and leave remains of people in the open for about 2-3 years. Now people are facing problems in that area and we can’t do anything to avert the suffering because we were not officially informed. The situation is so disturbing and personally I am not happy with the way they conduct their business,” said Chief Zimunya.

  11. Due dilligence in the govt is very important…chinese are good pple but there are also bad apples just like we have in our own govt. The americans can be bad but they have good side-fighting isis, responding to ebola in west africa. We only need to be honest to ourselves as zimboz live and walk the talk. Fowl language at whatever platform never gets us anywhere. We need constructive debates that lead to solutions that deal with the treacherous chinese

Anywhere yo Chinese are there to promote proverty only in Africa. Ask yo President wy he doesn’t have nd he can’t add a chinese vehicle to his escort. Also ask him wy when he went to China he didn’t buy even a suit in China. Kkkkkkkkkk wake up Mr Mike Matambanadzo Tyson Mukorokoza

  15. Pamberi mob justice/street revolts

  16. First the whites were here to plunder Zimbabwe’s resources. Now it’s the Chinese. Always blame somebody else for the your problems. I’ve been involved in China for over 25 years and like any people there are good citizens and bad ones. But what China doesn’t do is cry and blame others. I can invest in China and not fear racism like Zimbabwe.

  17. This MP is totally ignorant. He talking about look east policy when east is looking west. Western factories are in the east producing western goods. If you find chinese being front of west its normal that’s their policy. We are wasting time looking east when east is looking west, it does not make business sense.

  18. Kandrosy chikugwe
