The prosecutors say the court was arraigning the Chinese Nationals to wanting to spread a deadly disease. On March 19th this year, the 6 victims left the Kibuli Hotel Africa despite being under a compulsory self-isolation for about 14 days.

These six Chinese citizens were trying to reach the Democratic Republic of Congo and the police caught them in the Zombo district. Reports say that the 6 were coming from Guangzhou in the Province of Guangdong. This region is infamous for treating the African people badly.

Regarding the inhumane treatment of Africans in China, some Kenyans who had gone to Beijing spoke to the nation’s authorities. One of the Kenyans says that the Chinese authorities do not allow the Africans to enter their shops to buy groceries.

Today’s Verdict Concerning The Victims

Earlier today in Kampala, there was a court proceeding which sentences half a dozen Chinese nationals for disobeying the law. Ruth Nabaasa, Nakawa Court Chief Magistrate, sentences the six based on them owing up to their mistakes.

A newspaper report says the conviction is standby until earlier next month. The court looks forward to getting another Chinese interpreter for the hearings since Michael Zhong refuses to continue. Michael says that he has halted his duties as an interpreter since he is claiming that he has not received his pay for the job.

The two Ugandans who helped the Chinese nationals to escape have pleaded not to be guilty and hence they are in custody.
