South Africa Xenophobia : TVC News Staff has been shot

South Africa Xenophobia : TVC News Staff has been shot

TVC News correspondent,  based in South Africa, reported few minutes ago that her camera man, has just been shot in the ongoing massive xenophobic protest. Luckily for him, it was with a rubber bullet. She said: ‘And then there’s collateral damage: Running into the fray my cameraman just got shot in the back with a rubber bullet’.

The xenophobic attack launched on Nigerians in South Africa has become a major point of concern to people within and outside the country. It is intriguing that Nigerians in that country are subjected to a fate as terrible as that given the origin of both countries.

 With the series of events recorded as regards to the xenophobic attacks, Nigerians at home have lost interest in visiting that part of Africa for fear of being mobbed or killed. While the situation at hand does not speak well of Africa as the mother of the countries not on par, there are serious implications that things could become worse and rob the countries of future international relationship.

Within the last two years, about 116 Nigerians have lost their lives in South Africa through extra-judicial means. The federal government has called the South African Government to take firm measures that will protect Nigerian citizens and other Africans in the country.

What do you think should be done about this?

    Nigerians should come back home with immediate effect and stop procrastinating about it. Life is more important than business.
