China’s ambassador to the DR Congo, Zhu Jing, reacted angrily on Monday to a video circulating on Congolese Twitter that purportedly shows a Sicomines worker exhuming the corpse of one of his colleagues (NSFW).
The video was posted over the weekend and claims that a Congolese employee of Sicomines was killed on the job and that “the Chinese leadership decided to bury him without the approval of his family.” The tweet’s caption added that the victim’s Congolese “colleagues alerted the authorities who then exhumed the body.”
