  • Nigeria: Xenophobia - Blame the Victim!

    Maybe President Zuma and his xenophobic countrymen are right, after all. Long before it became a continental problem, Nigeria's incoming president, General Muhammadu Buhari, foresaw the possibility of xenophobic attacks on Nigerians who 'check out' to seek better life. It soon became clear that, at that point in time, Nigerians were not prepared for change as there were reports of open-air inter-denominational prayer sessions where Nigerians reportedly supplicated God's intercession to rid them of the corrective regime. Three decades on, the fear of xenophobic attacks that bothered General Buhari has assumed a frightening dimension.

    President Zuma's son Edward is xenophobic and racist. Like the disgarceful Zulu King Zwelithini he supports, whose reckless utterances sparked the attacks on foreginers, Edward continues Cecil Rhodes' odious legacy of dividing Africans. It is quite overwhelming to see the grown son of the most powerful man in South Africa act like a child that grew up in a home without discipline or education.

The 91-year-old president made disparaging remarks about Kalangas and people from Matabeleland after chairing a Sadc summit that was held in Harare a few days ago. Others fled Mugabe's violent campaign against political opponents, which saw thousands seeking asylum in other countries following the emergence of the MDC as a strong political force. If Mugabe had pursued sound economic policies and had not chosen to unleash unmitigated violence against his perceived opponents, there would be very few Zimbabweans who would have decided to leave their country of birth.
