South Africans Must Not Cry When Foreigners Start Attacking Them Back - Opinion.
The last two days there have been reports that foreigners were getting attacked as South Africans demand that they must go back home.
One incident happened at Bara taxi rank where South Africans attacked Zimbabweans and Nigerians. They burnt their stalls and small businesses. South Africans claim to be tired of these people and want them to go home.
Gayton Mckenzie, the leader of the Patriotic Alliance political party has also been making headlines as he demands that illegal Somalians and Bangladeshi should also go home.
The foreigners in South Africa have been an issue for quite a while now and foreigners are usually subjected to xenophobic attacks where some end up losing their lives.
South Africans want to be put first instead of foreigners, however, these attacks on foreigners are not the appropriate way to do things. As humans we all have universal human rights, regardless if we are immigrants or not.
A video was shared on social media. In this video, a lady explains that the foreigners have started attacking back and they are armed. This woman explains that they demanded that she tells them who organised the attack against them and they had guns.
Seems foreigners are attacking back. But as South Africans we must not cry because we should have let the law take care of this but instead we decided to take law into our hands. We all know that these people can be dangerous and we should expect worse from them. When they attack us, they also take out revenge for the lives and businesses that are lost due to South Africans. Let the government solve things because we might end up in a war with this people. A war that won't be good for us and our children
