c c BI The organisation says that it considers the use of speech by the Zulu King to promote hatred and/or incite violence against non-nationals such as Nigerians as a clear violation of the provisions of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.

c c AO In the land that ended apartheid two decades ago, violence against other Africans has been on the rise. What has gone wrong and what is to be done?

c c CA The xenophobia – better called Afrophobia – which broke out in South Africa in 2008 and again in 2015 is a sign of the continued existence of a deep-seated colonial mentality in this country. The ideas of pan-Africanism and the vision of a United States of Africa need to be embraced by the masses. Only by uniting the false borders will we be able to liberate ourselves for the benefit of all African people.

c c YV The xenophobic attacks in South Africa reveal the relics of apartheid, colonialism and imperialism; but they are also a starting point for Africans all over to re-think nationalism, being African and black consciousness in the context of enduring inequalities.

c c LG Durban has made a bid to host the 2022 Commonwealth Games. However, the city is built on a foundation of race and class inequality, leading to xenophobic attacks and unrest. Before Durban is ready to host any international events, it must become the strong African citizen it has promised to be by treating all of its citizens equally.

c c AC Nelson Mandela was welcomed to Ethiopia with open arms during his time in exile. He was given a handgun, a gift that meant a great deal to him and which may have been the ANC military wing Umkhonto we Sizwe's first weapon. Now Ethiopians and other Africans are being murdered by the liberated South Africans.

c c PZ Many black South Africans are yet to enjoy the freedom dividend. This is the primary source of their frustration that needs to be addressed urgently. As one of Africa’s leading nations, the country should also intensify its efforts to realize the dream of pan-Africanism.

c c KA All those years when South African freedom fighters crisscrossed the continent in search of support for the anti-apartheid struggle, they received only unstinting hospitality and solidarity. Have South Africans forgotten this? What do they teach their children about Africa?

c c M24 While plenty of anger has been targeted at South Africa, in Kenya the Uhuru Kenyatta administration’s reactions to Al Shabaab attacks have resulted in deepening anti-Somali and anti-Islam sentiments, thereby weakening the nation’s ability to build a united and effective response to the terror group.

c c AO We have seen our fellow women in South Africa take part in the looting and killing of helpless fellow Africans. What example are they setting for the South African girl-child?
