South African politician, Makashule Gana, a Deputy Federal Chairperson of Democratic Alliance has said some of his compatriots have complained to him that they are angry with Nigerians and other immigrants because
they snatched their girlfriends at an anti-xenophobia rally, held at Constitution Hill.
South African newspaper, City Press, reported that Gana advised that rather than get angry and take the anger out on foreigners, South African men should “provide” properly for women, rather than lash out at non-nationals for “stealing” women away.
“If you can’t speak to a girl, now all of a sudden a man that comes from Zimbabwe or Nigeria that can speak to a girl now must be killed. What is that?”
“So I ask my fellow brothers from South Africa, if you want a woman please go speak up, don’t go around and killing someone from Nigeria because they can speak up for themselves. Speak out because it is important,” he told the crowd.
