I wonder how many European countries will – up till now, have not made any statement concerning the faith of their nationals living in South Africa.
Where the businesses or lives of any European citizen been threatened by the ongoing xenophobic attacks, South African government would have – by now been under pressure, police having sleepless nights dealing with criminals and affected areas local authorities would have benn called to question. But those involved are African, so it is inconsequential.
This made me wonder what is wrong with African leaders, could it be ties? What ties and or diplomatic understanding or game could keep leaders from at least showing their nationals their concern and the position they are on regarding this unhealthy continental negative development with potential to strain relationship, if not diplomatic ties between countries, in the continent.
And where is AU’s voice?
How is this different from Kenya’s varsity students killing and Bioko Harems insurgency in Nigeria?
Its a sorry situation and I fear to worry about what this could lead or result to for South Africans in their future engagements with other countries of the continent. #xenophobiascare
