Stop tagging South Africans xenophobic – South Africa High Commissioner

South African High Commissioner to Ghana Lulu Xingwana has said the brutalities recorded in her homecountry against foreign nationals in the past few days have been misinterpreted.

She dismissed the popular tag that South Africans are Xenophobic and as a matter of fact hate foreign Nationals seeking greener pastures in their country.

“I’m asking you, if we have 60% women in our hospitals having babies, and so many children studying in our schools, talking about Universities and so on, If we’re Xenophobic why are we not chasing them away? Why are we not attacking the women in our hospitals who are sick and weak? Its just a blanket…I’m telling you is a crime. It’s criminals who are doing these things; those foreign criminals and South African criminals,that’s why I will not say is Xenophobia,” she said on Starr Today on Starr FM Wednesday.

Madam Xingwana also attributed the current attacks on foreign nationals to crime and poverty.
