A Zambian national studying in China was on Monday clobbered to death for dating a Chinese woman.
The student identified as Chrispine Mwale is said to have spent Sunday night with the girlfriend after a night out. The Civil Engineering student was in the morning dragged out of the house by four angry Chinese men calling him names.
“We went out drinking on a Sunday night as a group. After our drinks we got on a taxi heading to our apartment. On the way Mr. Mwale’s girlfriend said she wanted to spend a night with him. That’s how they left and I was only called by the girlfriend in the morning to come and save my friend,” a friend recounted.
Outside he was met by an angry mob that is said to have started throwing stones while others beat him with iron bars.
Mr Mwale, 25, witnesses say pleaded for his life but the irate crowd was having none of it.
The friend rushed to the scene of incident where the Chinese nationals could be heard insulting the victim.
“They insulted him that Africa was too poor and they would not allow black beings to be raised in their country. Despite pleading, they hit him with iron bars and stones until his final breath,” the friend stated.
