XENOPHOBIA: South African High Commissioner Blows Hot, Ask Nigeria Govt To Create Jobs For The Citizens To Stop Them From Flooding South Africa, Says No Ghanaian Died

SAHARANEWS – Lulu Xingwana, the South African High Commissioner to Ghana has asked African governments to create jobs for their citizens to discourage them from travelling to South Africa for greener pastures.

Xingwana said this Wednesday in a reaction to the latest xenophobic attacks in South Africa

The attacks have left five dead in riots in Johannesburg, where foreign-owned shops were targeted on Monday, a recurrence of the 2015 attacks that left at least seven people killed.

“And this starts from poverty, all of our countries must create jobs and opportunities for their people so that we don’t all flock to one country because the one country would not be able to cope. If all of us were coming to Ghana, would you cope? Would you?” she said on Starr Today on Starr FM.

“That’s why I say it’s crime, it’s poverty, in Ghana in South Africa, in Zimbabwe, in Nigeria everywhere. And then people will leave these countries and any other country and think they can find something in South Africa,” she added.

Xingwana said it was wrong for anyone to attribute the violence being recorded in South Africa to hatred of other African nationals.

She said the attacks were not directed to foreign nationals and that it is a crime associated with poverty.

“We have a responsibility, all of us to create jobs and opportunities for our people and not look at one country to do it,” she emphasized.

    You are very stupid for making such statement, then why will your citizens leave your so called south Africa to invest in other countries, is your country not enough for them to invest, they should equally stay in your country. I thought you’re educated, not knowing that you have nothing to offer than voicing out useless things from your stupid mouth.
