Attacks on foreign-owned shops continue in South Africa as toll increases

The Chairperson of the African Union Commission Moussa Faki Mahamat said it is disheartening for the South Africans to attack their fellow Africans including the looting and destruction of their property.

Lulu Xingwana described as "senseless" calls by some Nigerians and other nationals to deport South Africans from their countries for the xenophobic attacks.

According to a statement by his spokesman, the deep concern of President Buhari and Nigerians about intermittent violence against Nigerians and their property/business interests in South Africa.

A video has been circulating in social media depicting a purported explosion at the high commission in the capital city, following claims it was a retaliatory attack to the violence against Nigerians in South Africa.

"Nobody anywhere should think that anybody supports this kind of behaviour, whether by South Africans or by foreign nationals in South Africa", Cele said. This included Nigerian-owned businesses.

The African Centre for Migration & Society has followed the attacks against foreigners for several years, with significant spikes occurring in the years 2008 and 2015, respectively.

This reassurance was given over rising tension as a result of reported xenophobic attack against Nigerians and their businesses in South Africa. "Violence deters investment, and when investment is negatively affected, the vicious cycle of poverty continues", he said at the summit.

"We received reports of police standing by idly in Pretoria while shops were looted and people attacked", he said.

At least 420 people were arrested people last week after hundreds of foreign-owned shops were destroyed.

The men on Sunday were part of a group that disrupted a speech by Mangosuthu Buthelezi, president emeritus of the opposition Inkatha Freedom Party, according to the police statement.

"As I speak with you now, we have 640 Nigerians voluntarily registered to come to Nigeria and they will be home in a couple of days, and we believe that more will still be coming to register".

The violence has prompted popular entertainment personalities across the continent like Tiwa Savage and Burna Boy, in addition to other businessmen and women as well as academics to publicly disclose their decision not to travel to South Africa for any objective. "The violent attacks have started". At least one person was killed and five others were injured.

"We urge relevant authorities to enforce by-laws and deal decisively against those who trade in counterfeit goods and conduct business illegally".
