In a similar vein, Ghanaian actor John Dumelo has joined a host of celebrities who have publicly condemned the ongoing xenophobic attacks in South Africa.
According to the actor, the attacks on foreign nationals, must stop, stressing it is the height of injustice to attack defenceless nationals of other countries.
The violence, according to reports, was ignited by alleged comments by Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini. The king is alleged to have said that foreigners should leave South Africa.
John Dumelo in a post on Instagram Friday condemned the second wave of attacks stating it is senseless to kill “fellow Africans.”
“The xenophobic attacks against Ghanaians, Nigerians and other foreign nationals in South Africa must stop! This is the height of injustice. We are all Africans; we are all one people, with one positive goal. What’s the point of killing and attacking fellow Africans?” he asked.
Ghanaian actor Van Vicker also adding his voice, he said on Instagram, “I add my voice…Say NO to Xenophobia”.
On Thursday, awarding winning South African music duo, Mafikizolo, known for the hit song ‘Khona’, called for an end to the attacks.
“Stop xenophobia, everyone is a foreigner somewhere. I am against xenophobia, I believe we are all created in the image of God #uniteagainstxenophobia #stopxenophobia #” Mafikizolo said.
South African rappers, Cassper Nyovest and AKA, have also condemned attacks.
In 2008, about 60 foreign nationals were killed in similar attacks when locals vented frustrations over the lack of jobs in Africa’s second largest economy.
