    Herald, Herald! Please tell the truth and all the truth. Tell people that President Xi arrived yesterday noon and left in less than 24hours. That is hardly 2days mhani!

    Tell people that President Xi signed a 1.2billion dollar agreements here, but in South Africa, he was rushing there to sign USD9.4billion.

    Let the people decide for themselves who then is China’s greatest friend? I am sure you will say it’s Zimbabwe. The cake here is not even big enough for meal starter.
