A South African journalist with Pretoria FM, observing the ferocity of the xenophobic attacks, says the safety of Ghanaians in South Africa cannot be guaranteed totally contrary to what has been painted by Ghanaian officials.
According to Anton Meijer, although the situation in the country is relatively calm, nationals of other African countries including Ghanaians are not safe for now.
He advised, “try and keep contact with them [relatives in South Africa] to locate them and also get in contact with the Ghana High Commission here [South Africa] and then give them the details and whereabouts of the relatives so that in case it escalates, they can contact them”.
Anton Meijer pointed out that “from the South African side, I can’t assure you they can keep the people safe. South Africans are peace loving people but few minorities are attacking the foreigners”.
