Malawi to boycott South Africa goods after xenophobia attacks

In a statement posted online, the grouping says it’s disgusting that brothers and sisters are being hacked; slaughtered, chased wildly a development that is making life unbearable to them and all their relatives.

“The disgusting pathetic new apartheid order in back in South Africa. The only crime they’re earning this victimization is for being foreign citizens… This is a qualification that natives of South Africa, not Immigration officers, have used to brutalize migrants and the reality on the ground is shockingly inhumane,” reads the online statement in part.

The statement says the barbaric actions happening in South Africa illustrate that South Africans have no regard for the values of Ubuntu; “they have turned into enemies of other Africans; they are detached from the Africans’ family; they hold no dignity for fellow Africans; they have defied international solidarity.”

The grouping is accusing the African Union, SADC, UN and other organization of “just snoring and ignoring the status quo as if those being victimized in South Africa are aliens”.

They say South Africans are committing grievous crimes against humanity and their government must be taken to task accordingly.

Malawians are also being urged not to ot fly on South African airways until the murderous savagery ends.

Thousands of people from Malawi, Burundi, Zimbabwe and Congo have reportedly fled their homes in South Africa since a spate of xenophobic attacks and looting erupted two weeks ago.

Media reports said four people had been killed since the beginning of the month, including an Ethiopian man whose shop was petrol-bombed by a mob.

One Malawian was reportedly killed but Information Minister Kondwani Nankhumwa told reporters in Lilongwe on Wednesday: “So far, only three Malawians have been reported seriously injured.”

“However, one person who was also heavily injured has been evacuated from the camp by his relatives, and he is being taken care of by his family,” added Nankhumwa.
