Speaking last night with our Editor-in-chief, Mark C. Orgu, is a Nigerian, resident in South Africa South , Mr. George Dubem, who is a Senior Consultant at Dynametrics Consulting, and lives in Nelspruit Mpumalanga, said that it is unfortunate that the incessant attacks on Nigerians is meaningless, his words:
“Indeed, some mindless South Africans attacked foreigners in Gauteng , one of the nine provinces of South Africa. They burnt down businesses belonging to Nigerians and other Africans. As it stands, we are all living in apprehension because the South African Police is complacent to the dastard behavior. However, we are happy with the response from Nigerian government, taking an equivocal stance against this consistent attacks on other Africans in South Africa too. Meanwhile, we actually do not pray that it degenerates to the show of Military might; we hope that criminal uninformed locals are identified and punished”.
Asked on the accusation that most Nigerians take most of the South African jobs, Mr. Dubem, debunked it, saying that, “honestly, it is our view that South Africa government is not actively trying to curb this menace ; they are just trying to save diplomatic face. The sentiment is common, they fault foreigners for their problems. Moreover, Nigerians need to be cautioned, they are at the helm of almost all crime syndicates in South Africa. Asked again, on the role of the the High Commission, Mr. Dubem further stressed that the South Africa High Commission is a toothless dog; “they hardly raise their concerns, I believe they are shorthanded by illegitimate conducts of most Nigerians”.
Meanwhile, the Federal government of Nigeria has sent envoy to the country to ascertain situation and provide palliative measures to curb the violence. Also, there are reprisal attacks in most South Africa companies in Nigeria. The protest against Xenophobia at Shoprite, Lekki recorded a casualty as an unidentified person was shot dead at the premises
