A Gweru Chinese mine manager Zhang Xuelin has been arrested for shooting two black workers at his Reeden mine over a wage dispute.

Xuelin is said to have shot the workers, Wendy Chikwaira and Kennedy Tachiona, after they approached him demanding salaries after he had fired them from work.

Watch the video below:

The Chinese Embassy in Zimbabwe has issued the following statement:
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.
