Pray For South African Because This Is What Will Happen If Foreigners Decide To Retaliate- Opinion

A campaign against illegal foreigners in South Africa has been underway for the previous few days. Nigerians, Zimbabweans, and any other foreign nationals who happen to be in South Africa are among those who fall under this category. The issue of illegal aliens has been a source of contention for many years, but it appears that things are changing this time around, as political parties have joined the fight against these unauthorized immigrants. 


Fortunately, there haven't been any reports of anybody losing their lives as a result of the attacks against foreign nationals this time around, which is a relief. But it is still heartbreaking to see people being chased out of their homes and their businesses, which they rely on for their livelihood, being destroyed. 

While South Africans have a legitimate reason to drive foreigners out of the country, such as the need for jobs and the desire to reduce corruption and crime, there is a possibility that foreigners will fight back. 


Nigerians in Nigeria demonstrated in 2019 to demand that MTN Nigeria leave the nation since the company is owned by a South African company. This occurred as a result of xenophobic attacks against Nigerians that took place in South Africa. After a while, the foreigners will fight back. South Africans will be offended if they find out about it through trade, business, or even travel. 


In addition to being fought back against through business, foreigners are known to be involved in criminal activities such as drug trafficking and human trafficking. These individuals are plainly dangerous and have the capability of planning attacks on South Africans. One Twitter user stated that South Africans should avoid dealing with Nigerians because their gangs are far larger than ours. "It is the Nigerians who outnumber you in terms of sheer numbers. Don't get into a fight with them "..... 


At this point, there has been a claim that foreign nationals have begun to fight back, and that they are armed and demanding answers as to who is behind the campaign against foreigners at the Bara Taxi Rank in Nairobi. 


While it appears to be the proper thing to do to keep foreigners out, we should prepare ourselves for the consequences of doing so as well. It is possible that foreigners will retaliate as a result of this. 


Do you believe that South Africans will prevail in their battle against foreigners? Please share your ideas in the comments section.
