Reports from the meeting held today at the Federal Capital between the South African High Commissioner and the Nigeria Affair Ministry, Bobby Monroe, the commissioner of South Africa has denied the Xenophobic attack in South Africa.
He went on to say that the attack in South Africa was just a sporadic acts of violence in which even the business shops of South Africans was also affected in the violence and he has insisted that there was no Xenophobic attack targeted against Nigerians.
Do you think that Bobby Monroe is right?
The South African High Commissioner has got to be sick in the head or blind. There are evidences of the xenophobic attacks scattered over social media platforms and he still has the guts to deny it, the comments made by the South Africans also confirms it. Enough is enough, our government should do something about this.
I really don't think if Bob moren knows what he is really talking about, xenophobic attacks that south Africans has been using to discriminate against Nigerians in there country.
This man is a liar...just a few weeks ago a man was comfortably eating outside a restaurant,and then a few masked policemen approached him and took him to a private place and murdered the man...luckily a girl close to him was following their movements...this is proof that the government is in support of these killings...this should be stopped at all costs
Bobby may be right about his comments concerning the attacks on Nigeria citizens considering the fact that Nigeria and South Africa shares a lot of benefits... Attacks on Nigerians will stare up protest definitely and thus may lead to ways affecting both economy. I think it's just a general violence that affecting both the South African and Nigerian Citizens
Bobby Monroe or whatever he calls himself should just keep quiet if he doesn't know what to say.. .. If his family members were among those killed, i am sure he won't be saying dis gibberish he is saying... Nonsense
He's clearly doing his job as a representative of South Africa in Nigeria which is to defend the interest of his nation. It's left to our own government to do the needful in saving the life and property of its citizens in that country. It's audible and clear to the blind to know that xenophobic attack is paramount in South Africa.
That's a very big lie, how can he mistaken serious violence that led to losing of life's and huge properties for just common thing, how many south Africa were killed. This people are looking for war but let's we Nigerian settle everything with peaceful negotiations, if they don't want it this way, then vise vasa .
This man is taking us for a joke. There were a lot of videos online today as evidence that it's a xenophobic attack. Nigerians gathered theirselves and protested against the attack. A video was even posted where some people were speaking Yoruba, that's enough proof it's a xenophobic attack. He must be joking.
Bobby Monroe is not right he is just trying to cover the bad act of the southafricans attacking Nigerians. There's actually xenophobic attack in southafrican
What exactly do we call the unjust maltreatment of foreigners in a county? certainly its not racism cos we are all blacks. xenophobic attack incited by hatred that's stirred out of sheer jealousy and envy. The nigerian government have not done enough to ensure that nigerians abroad especially xenophobia prone countries are protected. The time to act is now and put an end to this national embarrassment.
He's trying to cover things that have already been uncovered, this is nothing but pure xenophobia. Videos have been going round in which we see and hear South Africans chanting "no more immigrants" and Nigerians are not even taking it anymore both here and over there as they've decided to settle scores themselves since the governments are not taking any measures. WHAT ELSE DO WE CALL THIS?
Something that is very obvious and we are seeing videos of how they are burning and killing our people over there? So those videos are fake.... Why are people like this? It's just so painful our FG has not reacted to this. May God save us and our people wherever they are
He is very wrong because these attacks were mainly centered on Nigerians over there. There were people watching Nigerian suffer those people were south Africans why didn't they help the Nigerians? Because they were in support of it
I even saw some S.A. laughing at the Nigerians pain
God help us in this country this is really sad
He is right for making people to be calm about the situation but the media have carried news which is contrary to what he said. NIgerian living there or those whose families are in SA cant just formulate lies and start spreading it.
what's he trying to tell us, are we blind? So actually this man is really defending his country and denying the fact, he should have explained more, this country doesn't act fast nigeria is just wick
According to the news circulation the press and the social media there is a xenophobic act in South Africa.
There are video of such act that have been posted.
Assuming there is no xenophobic attack there wouldn't be any rwasre for the federal government of Nigeria calling for meeting with the minister of affairs in South Africa
who are we to blame now for fake news or they lying to us either there isnenopha or not we dbnt want killing of our brothers and sisters. it will lead to killing back of souyh african in nigeria as well.
And u think we can believe this with all the videos and what South African people have been Posting online . For instance someone said we are going for them tomorrow and there is nothing your government can do about it.
How couldBobby Monroe say that there is no xenophobic attacks against Nigerians in SouthAfrica ,This is very clear and simple that the lives of our Nigerians staying in south Africa is not safe at all.This xenophobic attack had lead to the death of many Nigerians staying there which made our federal government called there to know how to put an end to it.
This so called high commissioner of South Africa Bobby Monroe, should watch his statements we ain't [email protected]@ls and we should be treated as one. If really there wasn't a xenophobic attack on Nigerians over there, then could he explain to us the to us the video clip of a Nigerian fellow that was set ablaze by his brother's.
Bobby Monroe is wrong. Xenophobic attacks didn't start this year, it has been going on since 2015. Nigerians in South Africa are in danger as well as other African foreigners
He was not right at all because I have watched a live video released by a woman who leaves in South Africa. In the video the woman said that after witnessing the xenophobic attack on Nigerians, she had to hid inside her house to shoot a live video and release it on social media so it can be spread quickly to Nigerian government to come to their aid. She was actually cursing Buhari for his reluctance to take action on South African government. So now how come this man is saying that nothing of such has happened?
Like seriously, is Mr. High Commisionner sure of his words? or is he just trying to calm down the situation at hand. Then what other explanation do he have to give on the video clip of a killing through xenophobic that has gone viral? We are not kids please let's stop all this deceitful act and look into a lasting solution to this barbaric act.
This man is totally wrong! Does it mean that he has not seen all the videos released where Nigerians are being molested,injured and burnt alive? Their action is totally barbaric and an abuse of human right. This situation should not be ignored, African unions and other continents should join hands together to see that this violent act is brought to an end.
Wow, is this what our government have become? Turning black white, seeing truth and saying it's a lie. If there is no xenophobic attacks in SA then what will thousands of people gain by taking to their twitter handles and other social media platforms to say there are attacks
Thats a lie! How can he possibly convince people that the killing is not targeted at Nigerians living in South Africa with what we are seeing? The federal government should not believe that and find a way of saving our people there.
The man is completely wrong. He should have seen the videos of Nigerians been burnt alive, companies been razed down and other shootings. This is nothing but a pure attack on humanity
This is not right everyday by day we are hearing attack here and there which is against Nigerian the mass killing of Nigeria in south africa is too much I think government should hear from the survival in south africa
I don't believe this is correct because issues of violence has taken place in different countries but no foreigners came out to say they are being attack I believe he is just trying to avoid a war amount the two countries
I don't think it's the truth.. All government personnel like to keep their citizens and country in a calm state which i think it's what's he's trying to do.. Using he's legitimate power to avoid more violence
Well i can't say whether what he's saying was right or not because i don't witness it myself it's only the video clips of the attack we see. But i believe if people don't see they won't say. I suggest he's lien.
This is not true...
If they are talking about Foreigners coming in and out we are also foreigners in there land, he should be aware of what he says because we do have people oflver there...
Come to thing of it, is this really the type of freedom Nelson fought for?
He is doing his work by protecting the government that sent him to Nigeria, but the truth is that pictures and videos can't be showing us negative report and also our people over there cannot also be claiming what did not happen.
He may or may not be right. Another,thing is having a prove to show that there's no such attack.
Even if there's no xenophobic attack, then what's the actual cause of the violence in South Africa. There must always be reasons for any action to occur.
He did not explain that either!
Well i can't say whether what he's saying was right or not because i don't witness it myself it's only the video clips of the attack we see. But i believe if people don't see they won't say. So I believe he's lying.
Why all African are always lying like this even with prove his still denied it. Why they can't ask him the causes of that violence and what's there government reaction to the violence? And why there police officers are in support of the violence
I don't believe him. He knows that the attack is going on. Many people has loosed their lives and properties yet he was denying it. The South Africans has forgotten so soon the sacrifices we made to gain their independence.
The man is a complete liar and I strongly welcome the reactions of our people on south African own businesses in Nigeria. With this nothing of such would happen again in the near future.
Why is this man lying? Does he think we're blind or what? Even the SA citizens involved in this barbaric and inhumane fight are not denying it one bit.
Denying it is not the next thing what's done is done. Let's just look for a way forward and put everything behind us as AFRICANS
This is a big lie, do they take us to be fools, we see the videos posted online everyday, people crying out ob social media platforms, family memebers crying and asking for help and they are trying to deny all that
Why will you say there's no xenophobic attacks against Nigeria, its really obvious, especially in the videos i watched even some one told me he had someone there telling him the attack was true.
Obviously Bobby Monroe's report lacks authenticity. How could he possibly say all these killings and shootings are just a sporadic act of violence? Clearly his covering up something!
I don't believe what he is saying, what is the proof that it is not xenophobia because we have visual(video) evidences of such acts. Let the commissioner not hide anything but come out straight
With all the news, video footage we've seen, the man is claiming that's it's just mere violence, let him come and say on the streets of Lagos, we'd show him what violence looks like. If he wanted to lie he should have thought of something more creative
What kind of lie is this? Are you trying to deny the killing or defend south Africa? I even have videos. What nonsense. Please if you don't no what to say don't draw attention to yourself.
I don't believe that because he is from there
He must support or defend their people because if he does not he will bear the consequences with out pitty at all
Although we're not in South Africa currently Bobby Monroe saying There is no Xenophobia attack against Nigerians in South African does that mean all the videos and news of how Nigerians are beaten and killed are not genuine, please proper investigation should be made to confirm this information.
This is ostensibly obvious that it's a lie. He's just trying to defend his country. I believe he has that same xenophobic mentality that's why he's coming out to lie. We seeing videos everywhere. Their government hasn't done anything to stop this. This is not what Nelson Mandela Died for. He will be so dissapointed wherever he is right now
