Xenophobia:Again, South Africans attacl Nigerian Estate Agents

Just as the House of Representatives team landed in South Africa and was visitng former South African President,Thabo Mbeki, another day of sorrow, tears and blood was witnessed by Nigerians in Tuffontein, a suburb of Johannesburg.

This time the victims were owners of Estate Agency forms who were accused of hijacking houses and making rents expensive.

In a report monitored on Channels Television, some South Africans alleged that the hijacked homes were either turned to brothels or used for harbouring drug lords.

We Work Hard

Meanwhile, some of the victims of the attacks who said the claims were untrue, narrated their plight to Channels Television.

One of the agents explained that their businesses were legitimate and whatever benefits they received were only a result of their hard work.

“They say we are driving nice cars, wearing expensive clothes, getting married to their women – Its by God’s grace, we work hard for it,” one of the victims said.

The attack is happening in the same week that the Nigerian and South African governments are holding talks to stop the attacks on foreign nationals in the country.

Both countries had agreed to set up an early warning unit to look into issues that often bring friction between the citizens.

The Nigerian Government had also called on the South African Government to take decisive and definitive measures to protect its citizens and other Africans within the country’s borders.
