WATCH: Zimbabwean Student Stabbed To Death In Algeria In Xenophobic Attack

A Zimbabwean student in Algeria is said to have been murdered by Algerians on Tuesday evening in an apparent xenophobic attack.

The student has been identified as 22-year old Prosper Ndudzo, who was studying for an Electro-mechanics degree on a scholarship at the Badji Mokhtar University (also known as the University of Annaba) on the north-eastern coast of Algeria.

Ndudzo was killed in a knife attack, prompting fellow students to protest against the gruesome murder.

Students from sub-Saharan Africa now fear for their safety.

Below is a video in which the late student’s friend who was an eyewitness of the murder recounts what happened.

    I am an Algerian citizen and I am very sad at this tragic news and ashamed that this student was murdered by thugs. Sadly, incidents like these are becoming a daily occurence in Algeria – we offer our sincere condolences to his family, friends and also to the people of Zimbabwe. As for racists – well, thugs do not select their prey on colour, etc….they are thugs and their motives are usually money / gain. We condemn these people whatever their motives were. A sad day for us and our prayers to his family.

    Prosper was killed by a thug who was attempting to steal his mobile phone. Nothing to do with xenophobia. His friend who witnessed the seen says it very clearly.
