#Xenophobia: South Africa High Commission Shuts Down Offices_1

According to a report by The Nation, the South Africa High Commission to Nigeria has shut down its offices and consulate.

This is as a result of fear arising from attacks by youths in the country.

The acting High Commissioner, Amb. Bobby Moroe, confirmed the report that he had directed the Mission to suspend all consular activities until the situation improved.

He explained that the reported attacks on South Africans in parts of the country informed the decision to close down the Mission.

Moroe stated, “I directed that the Mission should be closed until the situation improves. We heard that South Africans were being pulled out of vehicles and attacked. We feel unsafe and that is why I directed that the mission should close down until further notice.”

Details shortly.
