Following continued attacks on Nigerians in South Africa, a throwback video of the current South Africa Deputy Minister of Police, Bongani Mkongi, subtly justifying the Xenophobic attacks on Nigerians and other foreign nationals residing in South Africa has resurfaced.

At a press conference which held in 2017, Mkongi among other things said, “How can a city in South Africa be 80% foreign Nationals? That is dangerous. South Africans have surrendered their own cities to foreign nationals. The nation should discuss that particular question. You wouldn’t find South Africans in other countries dominating a city into 80%. Because if we do not debate that, that necessarily means the whole South Africa could be 80% dominated by foreign Nationals and the future president of South Africa could be a foreign National. We are surrendering our land and it is not Xenophobia to talk truth. We fought for this land from a white minority. We cannot surrender it to the foreign Nationals,” he said.
