- The African lady had gone to the premise to do shopping but was stopped from accessing shelves
- She questioned why she was being stopped while other people were being ushered in to do shopping but the officials insisted that she leaves
- The incident unfolded barely a week after hotels were allegedly ordered not to serve food to people of the African race
A video of an African lady being denied entry into a shopping centre in China has sparked rage from the online community.
The clip emerged in the backdrop of increasing humiliation and mistreatment of Africans in China with authorities linking them to the new wave of coronavirus cases in the country.
In the video which has since gone viral on social media, a middle-aged woman of African origin could be seen approaching a shopping shelve inside a slightly vast shopping centre but she was instantly stopped by two Chinese men presumed to be security officers.
Rattled by the incidence, the lady questioned why she was being stopped from accessing the shelves yet other people were being allowed to do so.
The attendants, however, remained adamant and asked her to leave the premises without bothering to explain.
This came barely a week after hotels in the Asian country were allegedly banned from serving food to people of the African race.
Additionally, Africans were being evicted from their rental houses by landlords forcing many to spend nights on cold streets and persevere the pangs of hunger and solitude of the deserted walking lanes.
The recent discriminatory gesture inside a shopping centre has angered netizens who trooped to social media sites to express the anger by calling out Chinese authority for presiding over the mistreatment of Africans.
