China launches newspaper for its citizens in Zambia

A new Chinese Newspaper has been launched in Zambia to cater for the Chinese community in the southern African state that is borrowing repressive media trends from the far East.

The Patriotic Front, who has embarked on a clamp down of online newspaper critical of President Michael Sata’s dictatorial regime, has praised China’s media record despite that country’s repressive media laws.

So far, the popular Zambian Watchdog and Zambia Reports are inaccessible inside Zambia although provisions through google provided proxies are making it possible for those with advanced communication devices to access the two websites.

The Chinese paper to be published fortnightly will be called The Oriental Post.

With a growing China population in the country most of whom are engaged in the mining and construction sector, there are efforts to increase Chinese trends in Zambia.

This is the first ever foreign publication exclusively targeting another race.

Director of news in the PF Chanda Mfula said China’s medai had shown focus and purpose in their operations.

    How do you notice forms of colonization?
    If someone wants you to speak their language
    Change your name into their language.
    Change your culture or encourage you not to practice it.
    Wear their form of dress.
    Some form of segregation or bar you from congregating with your own people.
    Forcing you to be like them, eg. behave like them. condemn what you do as a people.
    Discouraging you to be yourselves.
    And many more.

    China is becoming a world power it wants to colonize parts of Africa and compete with the West not by the form of colonization which the British did but by economic colonization and be a leader in economic wealth.

    It is nice to watch China even though China has no history of colonization of any nation. There is a notion of belief that the one who gets Africa rules the world. By launching a news paper it does not mean that China wants to colonize Zambia. But donor aid and development if tied with external influence, especially if that aid is tied with conditions.

    It is strange how people are so against the Chinese having their news paper. The number of the Chinese people has grown so much and hence Zambia is among the 10 countries with the fastest growing population in the world. You really expect them to know what is going on the country and hence the need for them to have access to the news in their own language. The Zambian former govts and present have not put in place a system to have these Chinese people checked properly.We need to make sure that Chinese people intending to come live in Zambia for a long time are able to speak at least English and should pass through some Labour organized school were they can learn labour laws before they engage into any business. This way you make sure you are controlling them and get a few bucks off them. Too much kapwalala pa Zed!

      Bodybuilder you are either silly or very naive! How do you say”Nice to see a new credible Paper” when you haven’t seen or even read any excerps from your same Chinese newspaper! Or you are simply one of those simpletons who will comment on any matter! Jesus says ”Preach the Gospel at all times, if necessary use words”!

    Kikiki – I thought that somebody was going to chase the so called ‘infestors’ in 90 days? Now they are even publishing their own paper which most Zambians will not even be able to understand as it will be in Mandarin.
