  1. They will die an irresistible death for killing innocent people from neighboring countries. All their citizens in other countries will be hunted down soon and their properties will also be destroyed. God forsaken SA.

  2. The point is let the Nigerian govt shut ShopRite ,DSTV and all that down in Nigeria,all these illiterate can’t do any thing, but thuggery, jealousy,their women is been married off all bcos they rape their women ,bunch of nonsensical generation. The Nigerian govt should just shut them down here bcos they are of no value to their neighbouring African countries. If all the rest African countries shut them down ,they will know what starvation is .Illiterates

  3. South African’s are retarded, they’re destroying their country. They are killing all of the farmers and business owners thus effectively killing their economy along with any chance of future foreign investment or trade. #FOOLS

  4. WE DO NOT WANT TO SEE YOU SOUTH AFRICANS IN THE REST OF OUR COUNTRIES. WE WILL MAKE SURE YOU VANISH IN TOTAL SILENCE AT ALL COST. THIS IS BARBARIC. THIS IS REAL. DO NOT GET OUT OF SOUTH AFRICA.

  5. south African nationals who attacked fellow Africans for not being south Africans then your stray dogs with no friends, that can’t remember the few good things we did for you during your pain.

  6. Black Africans against other black Africans? With all the racism blacks face from other nations? You guys need to unite.

  7. South Africans are lazy people. .
    . So u should appreciate foringners who came to better your county. .. if not for foringners south Africa will be no where. .

  8. Shame, no one irrespective of his or her colour should be killed for jobs that doesn’t even exit, stupidity you leader is a failure, Paul Kegame is the best of Africa shame to your president for hiding while you kill for jobs that doesn’t exist anyway, naive and myopic society

  9. Shame shame to south Africa, hope apartheid never comes back but if it does never call on Africa for your rescue, shame on you Rwandans are beautiful and better than you, shame to south African leadership

  10. I am from #Ethiopia, the only black nation on the planet who has never been colonized in History. A nation who trained Madiba a.k.a #Nelson.Mandela and #Robert.Mugabe in their fight against #Apartied & #British_colonialists. We deeply regret to support SA slaves in their fight from their eternal slavery.

    #South_Africans blacks are the weakest, coward & worest stupid slaves in Africa. They clearly understand that 80% of the nation’s wealth was taken by #whites & corrupted #ANC officers. However, they are targeting only the blacks especially the hero Ethiopians, who trained their greatest leader #Madiba. It was #Haile_Selassie who stealthily welcomed the young freedom fighter whose name was blacklisted as the most wanted terrorist by the then #CIA & #M16 agents.

  11. South africa is not country you people supposed to go live come back to your country you can make its

  12. South Africains must learn lessons from the past and not fall into violence and segregation toward any other ethnic group foreigners africains immigrants or white peoples there is jobs for everyone and each individual must play a positive role in society and in the economy to make this country flourish even more South African are a great people whit a rich history they should be proud of it I hope the best for them 🙏

  13. Mandela and the ANC promised that everything would be great — if only they could take power. Now South Africa looks like any other failed African country. And SA’s population continues to spiral out of control. It is obvious that the ANC has no answers, and is incompetent in doing anything but making promises and giving speeches. Notice the ANC continually talks about "how difficult" doing A, B or C is. And that they need more time. The bottom line is they aren’t able to accomplish anything. They promised a pipe dream to South African blacks that they cannot fulfill. And now the SA blacks have their "freedom," which means being managed by people with their same skin color, but being worse off then when the country was under apartheid. SA is no longer a safe place to visit. They convinced the South African blacks that they were what drove SA, when in fact, it was the Dutch/British/French that were responsible for creating SA in the 1980s. Where did all that technology and organization come from? SA, like AU was simply an extension of the European based heritage. Now the infrastructure is in a free fall because the ANC is not able to maintain it. "Redistributing Land" is a mirage, because when taken away from those who know how to farm and given to those that have no experience in farming, the farm lies fallow. Americans that drove SA to remove apartied with sanctions now have nothing to say. Far better to simply ignore SA that admit that you were wrong. It is deathly silent on the topic of SA in the US.

  14. Before your freedom, we cried with you, we supported you, we raised our voices to back you up, today you are killing your brothers, this is shame.

  15. WHY DO POOR PEOPLE WHO ARE BROKE–JOBLESS KEEP HAVING KIDS ??????WHY IS THE UN—AMERICA–EUROPE NOT ADDRESSING THE OUT OF CONTROL POPULATION GROWTH A HUGE THREAT TO THE WORLD..

  18. South Africans blame foreigners for taking job’s but appartied legacy is going on with black south africa. Forigners they just street artist they didnt take no body jobs. The question should be why forigners leaving their countries?

  19. Black people have mental problems, it’s like killing your very self when you kill a black man that’s why the entire Africa is in poverty. You have to love yourself to treat yourself right. That’s why most of your public office elected officers creates policies that won’t favor his own family but favors a white person from the west.

  20. Hatred is funny… Because it has only magnitude and once you created it, it can spread in any direction… Even, it can destroy the creator 🤣
