Nigerians and other foreign nationals (Africans) have suffered a lot in the hands of a section of South Africans. Business properties belonging to some African investors have been torched.
Disturbing videos of people being burnt live in the streets while crowds cheer has gone viral.

Zari This is getting out of hand. Xenophobic attacks are getting worse and some are using this opportunity to rob and loot foreigners shops. #saynotoxenophobia
confidenceuchem This heartbreaking
nhlanhla_nciza This just breaks my heart
Banky Wellington The #Xenophobia attacks by some South Africans against Nigerians and other foreign Nationals are completely heartbreaking. Sad to see people that suffered through decades of apartheid, violence and hatred, now turning around to do the same/worse to others.
Dr Kelechi Anyikude I’m deeply horrified by #xenophobia attacks on Nigerians in South Africa. We helped you during apartheid. We are the largest customers of your companies (MTN, DSTV, shoprite etc), yet you murder Nigerians, burn and loot their shops for no just cause
nyaike We are all trying to make a dollar $$ to feed our families and take our children to school, STOP KILLING US and torching our business #Xenophobia
bruno_kug Is this what Nelson Mandela fought for? These people are fools. We are all Africans
iamdayzaino This is hurt and heartbreaking, blacks killing black in the same country where white were killing blacks and all other black nations came together to fight for their freedom but what do we all get back in appreciation ??
Imagine the Lazy South Africa Youths occupying the whole street killing and burning hard-working foreigners living in South Africa, Who are you to kill a soul to pay for a soul? Those souls you are taking also belong to people, they all have family, do we have to set the whole world ablaze because someone was killed? What about the ones you guys are killing now?
It is time to put an end to this malicious act of envy and inferiority complex that is eating and killing all the lazy youths of South Africa…
Let’s take a look at this, take your pen , those foreigners paid for visa to South Africa into South Africa accounts ,Those foreigners bought aeroplane ticket to South Africa and part of the money went to the South Africa Aviation account , those foreigners are paying rent in South Africa into a South African account, can someone tell me what the South Africans want ? Are they so jealous that those guys came with just one luggage and now own businesses? Did they stopped you guys from owning your own business??? The answer is, you guys can’t just do any other thing than having 100 holidays in 365 days and start drinking, smoking and start planning on how to fight and attack foreigners that are outside doing their various businesses…
bazenian South Africans are a disgrace to people in Africa, they still let white people dominate and own most of the businesses,and hate and killing fallow African for trying to make living .? Who doesn’t fight against apartheid.? The whole continent cry for your freedom!
divabosslady8 Omg Mandela didn’t get where he got South Africans for blacks to hate on black this much 🤦♀️… May God protect the foreigners in that country
yahyabakari South Africa is not Safe 4 foreigners
Dear South Africans,
God is our witness when the whole Africa nation stood by you, condemned every single brutality meted on you during the apartheid days.
During our school days, it was boldly written on top of our blackboards ‘APARTHEID IS A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY’ all in solidarity for our acclaimed brothers (South Africans). This fight was so severe that the whole African nations participated in it. Nigeria, Ghana, Zambia, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, etc were all against the apartheid govt that was meted on you. South Africans were being killed on a daily basis during the apartheid! The whole Africa clamoured for the released of Nelson Mandela and the immediate independence for you people.
When the independence came and the released of Nelson Mandela, the joy and happiness in the African continent cannot be quantified, there was jubilation in the whole of Africa that FW de Klerk is leaving for a new South African country.
But, how could we know that the South Africans are bloodthirsty carnivorous beings that could kill and destroy those that stood firmly for them when it was too rough for them to handle.
If these African countries that stood for the cannibals knew that it will become this way, at last, no doubt they would have still been in their captivity and their cherished Mandela could have rotted in prison.
Don’t worry south Africans, very soon you will get the jobs that you are desiring for.
Very soon your MTN, DSTV, SHOPRITE etc will relocate from every country that it is operating. And you will not only get it well packaged but it will be roughly packaged for you.
No doubt, the killings been perpetrated over there will not go unnoticed.
The response will reflect soon from the African nations being affected.
Kenyans, Zambians, Nigerians, Ugandans, Ghanaians, Tanzanians, Ivory coast etc is very angry with you. Africans will respond very very soon
South African politician Julius Malema has addressed the ongoing South Africa Xenophobia, calling upon his countrymen to respect their African brothers and sisters.
