In the past weeks, a series of videos showing how hundreds of Africans being evicted from their homes and hotels in the Chinese city of Guangzhou went viral on social media, fetching massive criticism for China.
The government of Uganda through the ministry of Foreign Affairs came out and addressed the issue revealing that they had engaged the Chinese government that promised to put the situation to order.
The better news we are receiving now is that People Power leader and Presidential hopeful Hon Robert Kyagulanyi has written to Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda requesting that Uganda allows receiving Ugandans, citizens of fraternal African states and African-Americans stuck in parts of China.
Bobi Wine said together with US businessman Neil Nelson are ready to airlift the Africans if any African country agrees to receive them.
“Together with my friend Neil Nelson, CEO ATLBlackStar, we are offering to airlift Africans and African-Americans being subjected to inhumane treatment in parts of China,” Bobi Wine said.
“We are offering to airlift them to safety in any willing country. Let’s continue to raise awareness and to appeal to home countries to accept and receive these individuals who are being treated with extreme indignity,” he added.
