Demanding for Deportation of Somalians is a Cheap Hate Reserved for Africans - Somalian Man Says.

The tension between Somalian nationals and local South African citizens is gradually growing to a point where it might become very uncontrollable.

This is something that started as mere reaction to provocation made against the Somalian community in South Africa.

You would recall that Somalians took to the streets of Port Elizabeth to register their displeasure over the manner in which one of them was knocked down by a speeding taxi driver.

The protest saw the destruction of buses and transport company buildings. This has prompted South Africans to demand for the deportation of foreigners who they say are constituting problems for them.

Meanwhile, a Somalian man known as Jack Devnarain on Twitter has called out South African people for demanding that Somalians should leave and for they businesses to be shut down.

He referred to such suggestion as cheap betrayal of human right.

According to his statement on Twitter:

"This is madness. demanding for the deportation of Somali nationals and the closure of their spaza shops! For being Somalian?

What a cheap and ugly betrayal of their human rights. Who's next, Greek people, the Portuguese? Or is this hate reserved only for Africans?"
