‘Govt Abandoning Students In Corona Virus Hit Wuhan’
Zimbabwean students studying in the Chinese city of Wuhan have accused the government of President Emmerson Mnangagwa of abandoning them in the midst of a deadly coronavirus outbreak.
A Zimbabwean student who spoke to a local publication on condition of anonymity revealed that some countries within the Southern African region are assisting their nationals in the Chinese city while they have received nothing from their government.
Said the student:
Zimbabweans are desperate. The coronavirus situation is bad. Everything is closed and some people have run out of food. The government is not helping. Some countries are helping their students who are here.
Zambia, Botswana, Ghana and Namibia gave their nationals some money, and we have not received a cent from the government. For us, we now survive from the benevolence of some Zimbabweans living in China to complement the help we get from the Chinese government.
We managed to get the ambassador (Martin Chedondo)’s contacts a few days ago and we spoke to him, but he did not promise anything, while other countries are giving financial assistance to their distraught citizens.
The students, who are estimated to be around 350, were caught up in the COVID-19 outbreak which occurred in the middle of December.
Chinese authorities have restricted movement in parts of the country to curb the spread of the flue-like ailment.
