Chinese memorial graves to be constructed next month
The China Civil Engineering Construction says it will commence the construction works of a Chinese TAZARA Memorial Park in Chongwe next month.
In November last year, the Chongwe Municipal Council ordered an immediate stop to the construction of a Chinese cemetery in Silverest area, but the decision was later overruled by Foreign Affairs Minister Joe Malanji who said the land was legitimately given to the Chinese in 2015.

Mr. Haitao said this during a joint health campaign held at the project site of TAZARA Memorial Park in Chongwe. C
