Social media users have reacted in disgust and horror following reports of fresh xenophobic attacks in South Africa.
Several videos capturing harrowing scenes have emerged of South Africans subjecting other African nationals to beatings and other forms of torture.
Nigerians, who claim they’ve been the targeted group in the recent attacks have asked a clear line of action from their government.
‘Enough is Enough,’ one user wrote.
I think #EnoughIsEnough. The Nigerian Government 🇳🇬 really needs to TAKE ACTION NOW on the #XenophobicAttacks in South Africa 🇿🇦. We helped them during Apatheid. See how they are treating us and other foreigners in their country 😡#Xenophobia #SouthAfrica #PretoriaCBD #BBNaiija— Seye Oyekunle (@seye_oyekunle) September 3, 2019

South African Shame on you guys. If you are hungry beg or ask for food instead of introducing #XenophobicAttacks in order to loot from our vigorous citizens. You will all pay for this dearly. Hunger will never depart your homes.https://t.co/hkVJg2NHsu@Bloomberg pic.twitter.com/4yeQSklkts— NaijaVoice (@matty_blow) September 3, 2019

It is still black on blacks.❔— J.abeku (@j_abeku) September 2, 2019

With these #XenophobicAttacks, I am never going to South Africa except as a diplomat— Oke Umurhohwo (@OkeStalyf) September 2, 2019
We spent billions of dollars to finance most of the leaders of the ANC in their struggle and they can't even protect Africans in the same SA where they were mauled like dogs under apartheid?
Good evening South Africa. Stop murdering fellow African. Violence is not the way! "Through violence you may murder the hater, but you cannot murder hate."~ Martin Luther King Jr. #XenophobicAttacks #PretoriaCBD— Thuo Kimani Githuku (@thuogithuku) September 2, 2019
