By A Correspondent- The Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) Secretary General Japhet Moyo has warned the Chinese embassy in Zimbabwe that the union will launch a global campaign against Chinese investors if its nationals in Zimbabwe continued violating labour rights.

ZCTU petitioned Chinese ambassador to Zimbabwe, Guo Shaochun to reprimand his fellow countrymen in the country or face retaliation.

The development follows the shooting of two Zimbabweans in Gweru by a Chinese businessman, Zhang Xueun over a salary dispute.

Said Moyo:

We would like to warn you that if these abuses by Chinese investors continue, the ZCTU will have no option but to launch a global campaign against any Chinese investors who come not only to Zimbabwe but Africa.

There is no doubt that your compatriots are a law unto themselves and act with impunity knowing that they have protection from someone in the higher offices.

Why is it that of all investors coming to Zimbabwe, the Chinese investors have proved to be the most abusive?

This is the same behaviour that led Zimbabweans to take arms against white oppressors. Sooner rather than later, workers are bound to retaliate.
