China blasts BBC for ‘fabricating’ stories

By Freya Wanjiku October 20th, 2022 1 min read

China has accused the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) of fabricating stories to portray the Asian country in bad light.

Via a tweet, the Chinese Embassy in Tanzania specifically took issue with a story appearing on the BBC website indicating China has opened up police stations in Nigeria, Lesotho, and Tanzania so as to regulate illegal dealings by its nationals.

The BBC is yet to respond to the accusation.

Mbelwa Kariuki, Tanzania’s Ambassador in China Mbelwa Kairuki has since denied the presence of Chinese police officers in Tanzania.

Last month, Kenya’s Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua warned the Chinese against mistreating and beating Kenyans. “I have seen Chinese people beating our people in Nairobi. Do not try this one here. If you try here you will be in trouble.”

“You do not have to beat us because we owe so many other people money, even here in kiosks we have debts and nobody is beating us. The fact we owe you money does not mean you beat us up.”
