Zimbabweans, Malawians And Mozambicans The Top 3 Targeted Group During Xenophobic Attacks – UN

People from Zimbabwe, Malawi and Mozambique are/were the top 3 targetted group of people by South Africans during the Xenophobic attacks. These groups were also the ones hardest hit by the Xenophobix/Afrophobic attacks that made headlines a few days/weeks ago.

United Nations secretary-general’s spokesperson, Stéphane Dujarric, told journalists during the ongoing 74th session of the General Assembly that Zimbabweans were among the targeted group:

We are trying to get the breakdown, but we know there are refugees from a number of countries including Zimbabwe.

The UN Higher Commission for Refugees said in recent weeks the number of calls of people informing them about home invasions and destroyed businesses have increased. The agency issued a statement that read:

Some 800 people, mostly from Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe, have sought safety in community halls in Katlehong. Many wish to return home, saying they no longer feel safe in South Africa. Reports indicate that 73 Malawians, 138 Mozambicans, 314 Nigerians and 72 Zimbabweans have decided to return already.

  1. I shake my head in disbelief, as I learned about South Africa xenophobic attacks. Maybe they don’t study history in their schools. These bordering countries were the hardest hit by the apartheid regime. The hands that fed the dogs were the very hands the dog bit.
