South Africans React to China Donating $160 Million Parliament Building to Zimbabwe

As a result of the Chinese government's completion of the Zimbabwe Parliamentary building, Harare is filled with excitement and satisfaction. The building was constructed as part of China's plan to revitalize the country's infrastructure after many years of deterioration.

The structure reportedly cost the Chinese government approximately $160 million US dollars and is outfitted with modern technical equipment. This six-story structure will host both the Upper and Lower Houses of Parliament.

In front of the new Parliamentary building, both the Chinese and Zimbabwean flags were raised.

South Africans, meanwhile, are strongly opposed to the notion that China would provide such a structure to Zimbabwe without ulterior motives.

These are some of the comments collected from individuals:

Saffa: "Why is the Chinese flag flying at the Zimbabwean national landmark? If this does not indicate state capture, then"

Ngeke Ngizwe: "Embarrassing! The most intelligent and diligent people on the continent were incapable of constructing a parliament ".

Thabang: "How will this structure benefit the people on the ground? Why did China not construct a hospital there? Chinese are already involved in the slave trade in other African nations ".

Trevor: "Can't engineers from Zimbabwe who are thriving in South Africa evaluate the structure and eliminate anything that seems out of place?"
