Tweet of the Day: China’s Consul General in Johannesburg was Impressed by the Big Boss’ Drumming Skills

Chinese Consul General Tang Zhongdong admired Wang Yi’s drumming talents before the Foreign Minister boarded his plane at the Bujumbura International Airport in Burundi where he wrapped up his six-nation African tour over the weekend.

The Consul General doesn’t Tweet too much original content on his feed as he largely reposts content from Chinese state-run media outlets. You can follow Tang on Twitter at @DonaldTang18.
