South Africans beg Nigerians for forgiveness over xenophobic attacks
Following the repatriation of Nigerians living in South Africa over the wave of xenophobic attacks, a video making the rounds online has captured South Africans in a peaceful demonstration begging Nigerians and citizens of other African countries for forgiveness over the attacks.
The demonstrators sang as they marched through the streets and also held up a banner which prayed for unity among Africans.
This demonstration is coming on the heels of South African President, Cyril Ramaphosa dispatching a special envoy to seven African countries to deliver a solidarity message and also brief each country’s government on the South African government’s effort to address the xenophobic attacks.
