Xenophobic: How African countries reacted to South Africans attack on immigrants
Three African countries have said they will not participate in the World Economic Forum (WEF) scheduled to occur on the 4th of September.
The President of Rwanda, Paul Kagame, President of Malawi, Peter Mutharika, and the President of Dr. Congo, Felix Tshiekedi, withdrew from the event as a result of xenophobic attacks by South Africans on foreigners.
Three Nigerians were killed on Monday during an attack on foreigners in South Africa.
One of the people killed was burnt alive.
The attack on foreigners started on Sunday morning, where angry mobs stormed foreign businesses and Loot.
The attacks are believed to have been carried out by the Zulu hostel dwellers.
One of the Nigerian businesses affected was a Nigerian car dealer, whereby his businesses were set ablaze.
The attack spread across the second day before the security operatives got involved, dispersing the angry Mob.
Meanwhile, the leader of South African Economic Freedom Fighters, EFF, in a statement, condemned the attack.
He said whether you are from South Africa or Zimbabwe, this is your home. He, therefore, calls for an end to self-hate. He said, Africa, we are one, Nigerians are our brothers.
It is coming three weeks after the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) came out in numbers to lock down South African companies in protest of the Xenophobic attack on Nigerians.
