It’s Not Xenophobia, It’s Hunger – SA Chief Justice

South Africa’s Chief JusticeMogoeng Mogoenghas said that the recent violence and attacks on foreign African nationals in South Africa is not because South Africans are xenophobic. He said it is caused by hunger.

South Africans are not xenophobic. If I was xenophobic, I would be attacking the vice chancellor (a foreign national) now.

We must ask, why is it that the large-scale attack of that nature is happening again in 2019. We tend to prefer naming and labelling things. In 2008, we had an economic meltdown all over the world. People were hungry and retrenched on a massive scale.

There may well be xenophobic elements but it is not where the problem ends. If you think teaching people to love one another, that will be the end of it, you are joking.”

At least 12 people died in the recent attacks. 2 of the Zimbabweans.

Following th attacks about 96 Zimbabweans have been repartreated back to Zimbabwe. Almost 200 Nigerians have been repatriated back to ttheir home country.

  1. They’re not hungry they take advantage on law of the country. They see law is too light and soft, how can murder keep killing innocent souls and you keep giving murder so call bail, if murder knows if I kill I will be killed you think he or she will kill? Answer is no. Victims are in pain every day. Remember hight class people if victims are your family or lovely ones

  2. With all due respect, hunger or xenophobia, the law should and must be seen to be enforced. Currently non of the above seem to be happening. The CJ might have a valid argument but how does then one justifies the murderous acts being perpetuated agains foreign blacks as if there are no foreign whites
