More stones on Chinese racist Lu Ke’s head

By Thandie Chadzandiyani

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Child Rights Legal Clinic under University of Malawi (UNIMA) has organized demonstrations in Lilongwe on June 21, 2022 to protest against Chinese national, Lu Ke, for the recent revealed degrading racist video involving minors.

Chinese racist Lu Ke

The Child Rights Legal Clinic Supervisor Professor Garton Kamchedzera disclosed this in an interview adding that Lu Ke’s action was contrary to the Constitution of Malawi under section 19 (1) and 23 (5).

“Rights of a Child is an international legal instrument that protect children against all forms of violence, abuse and exploitation and Lu Ke’s action must not be tolerated.

“We will demonstrate on 21 June starting from Njerwa where the exploitation took place and will end at the Chinese Embassy where we will deliver a petition to Chinese authorities in Malawi.

He added that the behaviour by Lu Ke has revealed that he has low regards to children rights and Malawi and China have failed their duties to protect the children if nothing will be done about the issue.

He also said the Lilongwe demonstrations will raise awareness on the responsibility of citizens and the state to protect the rights of children in Malawi.

Alexious Kamangira who is also a law lecturer at the University said every citizen has the responsibility to protect children against all forms of abuse, adding that the demonstrations in Lilongwe will also raise awareness on child rights.

He has therefore petitioned all child rights activists to participate in the demonstrations to denounce Lu Ke’s child rights violation.

This comes after a documentary that was released on BBC which revealed that the Chinese national had been taking videos of children aged between 3 to 10 at Njerwa Village in Lilongwe, Malawi.

In the video, children wearing matching shirts were seen chanting phrases in Chinese language following instructions from a man off-camera. The phrase the children were chanting were translated to ” I am a black monster and my IQ is low.”

Investigations also revealed that Lu Ke popularly called Susu (uncle) by the locals in the area had been using violence to force the children say the phrases he wanted.
