The former President of the Republic of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama has condemned xenophobic attacks launched by some South Africans on foreigners especially Nigeria.
The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) on his official Instagram page wrote;
“The xenophobic attacks on Africans in Alexandra, South Africa are condemnable and run absolutely contrary to all our efforts at continental integration.
Clearly, and as I have said in the past, the perpetrators of these gruesome attacks are ignorant of the continental solidarity that was required to defeat apartheid and give birth to the new South African nation.
Certainly the South African Government must take responsibility for these inhuman actions and implement urgent steps to prevent these attacks from recurring in the future”.
John Mahama happens to the few powerful and influential people who have condemned the xenophobic attacks in South Africa.
