The Chinese employer Zhang Xuelin (41) of Reeden mine who shot and injured an employee last Sunday has been remanded in custody to July 07th, 2020.
The shooting had calls for strict measures taken against Chinese employees who are well known for abusing workers.
Chinese Embassy called Zimbabwe’s law enforcement agencies to ensure justice is served.
In a statement, the Embassy said, “We are highly concerned about the case in which a Chinese employee of a private Chinese company near GWERU shot and injured a local employee due to a wage dispute yesterday. 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. China and Zimbabwe have long-standing friendship and cooperation. We call upon all relevant sides to safeguard it jealously and carefully”.
