Xenophobic Attack Spreads In South Africa As Five Reported Dead

Xenophobic attack has gradually spread to other parts of South Africa as five persons have been reported killed. Five foreign nationals have been killed but no death of a Nigerian has been reported so far, according to Nigeria’s Acting High Commissioner, Ambassador Martin Cobham, who is currently in Durban.

The attacks on immigrant-owned shops and homes in Durban’s townships come three months after a similar spate of attacks on foreign-owned shops in Soweto, near Johannesburg.

On April 13, the Malawian government said on  it would help repatriate its citizens from South Africa following an outbreak of xenophobic violence in the eastern port city of Durban.
