The Rwandan government has denied reports that it expelled 18 Chinese nationals for making employees work long hours.
The reports circulating online said that President Paul Kagame had ordered for the deportation.
However, the ministry of foreign affairs tweeted that the reports were “fake news”:
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs & International Cooperation would like to inform the public that there has been fake news circulating on various social media platforms stating that 18 Chinese citizens were expelled from Rwanda; no such thing happened. Please ignore.
