Dead human bodies

Yang Youming, Chinese Ambassador to Zambia has denied reports suggesting that the Chinese government is selling human flesh to Africa as corned beef.

“Today a local tabloid newspaper is openly spreading a rumor, 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," Youming said

The report sparked when an undisclosed Chinese woman stated that Chinese beef companies have run out of beef and are now opting for dead human flesh.

The woman claimed that dead human flesh are collected, marinated and packaged for sale across Africa. She warned Zambians to stay away from Chinese made corned beef.

According to news, Youming has called on the Zambian government to investigate the local Newspaper that published the malicious article against the Chinese people.
