Nigeria Mulls Expelling South African Companies Over Xenophobic Attacks

If reports filtering in are anything to go by, leading South African companies may be shown the way out of Nigeria. This is on the aegis of the recent xenophobic attacks experienced by Nigerians in South Africa. In a reprisal move, the Senate is considering excusing DSTV, MTN, and Shoprite out of Nigeria. Senator Olusola Adeyeye representing Osun Central constituency of Osun State gave the hint during Tuesday’s plenary.

The South Africans are annoyed that Nigerians are taking over their jobs and opportunities. The killings have since spread to include not just Nigerians but all foreigners and also white South Africans.

Tragedy has once again struck the farming community, as once again there’s news of another death involving a farmer in Hartswater as revealed by Ismail Obaray MPL – who is the DA Northern Cape Provincial Spokesperson of Agriculture. He said the incident happened during the weekend.

Below is a press release from him:

The DA condemns the murder of 79-year-old farmer, Piet Jacobs, whose bound body was found on his plot in Hartswater on the weekend.
Jacobs is one of at least twelve people who have lost their lives in farm murders that have taken place across the country since the beginning of February this year. During this same time frame, at least 30 farms countrywide have come under attack.
The cold-blooded killing of Jacobs once again emphasizes the urgent need to bring back rural-safety units.
