The expulsion of Africans from their homes in Guangzhou is causing a diplomatic storm crossing the globe, especially in Africa. After several videos of the maltreatment of Africans in the South of China went viral in April of 2020. Sadly, when confronted, Chinese forging ministers denied discrimination of Africans. This, however, has forced Africa countries such as South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda and more to take action, and are now screening and investigating Chinese foreign nationals in their country.
And some of the findings exposed will shock you. As we know in late March and throughout the month of April 2020, hundreds of African migrant workers, traders, and students in the southern city of Guangzhou, which is also known as home to Asia’s largest African diaspora, were forced out onto the street - some by their landlords, some by hotel managers, and some by local officials.
Those evicted, insisted that they had paid their rent, had valid visas and the right paperwork, and had no contact with anybody infected with the coronavirus. Meanwhile, many others were forced into a 14-day quarantine and random testing without getting their test results.
