Zambia Killings Prompt Online Debate Over Compassion and Discrimination

Frustration emerged among some Chinese netizens about the apparent lack of any African response to the murder of three Chinese nationals in Zambia that happened on Sunday. Twitter user @CaliCali2000 started the discussion that then generated considerable discussion 

Soon after CaliCali2000’s post, Liko Imalet replied:
The frustration is indeed understandable. But he seems to have overlooked two major facts
– Africa is a continent not a country. Therefore this is a Sino-Zambian matter
– African leaders need China but  tbh, the civil society have no trust in their own leaders nor their “allies”
