Xenophobic Attacks in South Africa Leave Foreign Nationals in Fear

01 Apr 2023  |  Voice of America
The article reports on the recent xenophobic attacks in South Africa, highlighting the plight of foreign nationals like Ethiopian shopkeeper Zerihun Tabo, whose store in Johannesburg was looted. It discusses the historical context of such attacks, noting that they have been occurring since 1994 with significant spikes in violence in 2008 and 2015. The article mentions the role of politicians in exacerbating anti-foreigner sentiments and the incorrect claims made by South Africa's former deputy minister of police, Bongani Mkongi, about the proportion of foreign-born residents in Hillbrow. The fact-checking organization AfricaCheck debunked Mkongi's claim. The article also includes insights from Jean Pierre Misago, a researcher at the African Center for Migration and Society, on the origins of resentment towards immigrants. South African President Cyril Ramaphosa and Godrich Gardee of the Economic Freedom Fighters party have both spoken out against the violence and called for a response to the attacks.

Ethiopian Police Reject Claims of Arbitrary Tigrayan Arrests

20 Jul 2021  |  voanews.com
Ethiopian police have arrested over 300 ethnic Tigrayans in Addis Ababa, accused of supporting the banned Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF). Police Commissioner Getu Argaw denied the arrests were ethnically motivated, stating that suspects from other ethnic groups were also detained. Amnesty International criticized the detentions for lacking due process, noting that families were uninformed of the detainees' whereabouts. The conflict in Tigray is escalating, with recent attacks in the Afar region and TPLF's vow to reclaim territory. Despite a unilateral ceasefire announced on June 28, the situation remains tense.
