What is going on in South Africa?
Shouldn’t everything be roses now under black majority rule?

Umm … in Madiba’s day, the A.N.C. stood for Animals, Necklacing and Communism. It appears to be making a comeback.

What a disgrace #SouthAfrica xenophobia attacks. It is time the African nations and the West condemn all the human rights violations against the minorities and foreign African nationals. pic.twitter.com/1dAuTXmS4z— Danie Barnard (@DaanBarnard) September 2, 2019

“South Africa has been hit by an outbreak of xenophobic violence in its biggest city, attracting criticism from other African nations in the week political and business leaders from at least 28 countries gather in Cape Town.
A spate of violence that broke out in suburbs south of Johannesburg’s city center on Sunday and spread to the central business district on Monday saw the destruction of more than 50 mainly foreign-owned shops and business premises. Cars and properties were torched and widespread looting took place.
The attacks come ahead of the beginning of the African edition of the World Economic Forum in Cape Town on Sept. 4 and before a state visit to South Africa by President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria, a country whose nationals have been affected, next month.
“The continuing attacks on Nigerian nationals and businesses in South Africa are unacceptable,” the government of Nigeria said on Twitter. “Enough is enough. Nigeria will take definitive measures to ensure safety and protection of her citizens.”
Who is to blame?
I blame “white supremacy.”
Here is South Africa’s Deputy Police Minister, Bongani Mkongi, justifying the killing of Nigerians and other foreigners in the country. He said this in March, this year.— Lere Olayinka – Aresa 1 (@OlayinkaLere) September 2, 2019

This is quite a dilemma for Julius Malema.
