Following a Facebook hoax, showing a meat factory in China, marinating and selling the meat from dead bodies to African nations somewhat making them carnivores, the country has come out to deny the claims.
Rumors of this trade started flying around when several photos of skinned dead people from the said meat lab in China started surfacing on social media. Some alleged sources said this kind of trade started after China ran out of space to dispose of their dead bodies.
Some source even said the said dead body meat peddlers would rather save the ‘god meat’ for powerful and richer nations.
Bu China’s ambassador to Zambia, reacting to the rumours which was said to have been encouraged by Zambia press, denied the claims:
Today a local tabloid newspaper is openly spreading a rumour, claiming that the Chinese use human meat to make corned beef and sell it to Africa
This is completely a malicious slandering and vilification which is absolutely unacceptable to us. We hereby express our utmost anger and the strongest condemnation over such an act.
