South Africa has been in the news again for another horrid wave of xenophobic attacks. These needless attacks however seem to be rooted deep in the blood line of some South Africans as records of it date as far back as the 1980’s.

However, according to Wikipedia, between 2000 and March 2008, at least 67 people died in xenophobic attacks. Again, in May 2008, a series of xenophobic attacks left 62 people dead though 21 of those killed were South African indigenes………..

Then in 2015, another nationwide spike in xenophobic attacks against immigrants prompted some foreign governments to repatriate their citizens.

Fast forward to 2019, xenophobic attacks have reared its ugly head in South Africa again. Addressing the issue of xenophobia in a Facebook post, Sister Deborah has expatiated on the need for Africans to view Africa as a ‘country’ as a means of fostering unity.

According to the songstress, such a mentality will prevent Africans from attacking each other.

However, she didn’t hold back her anger and described those engaging in xenophobic attacks as ‘stupid’.
