  1. RAM PHOSA IS A CRIMINAL AND A BETRAYAL, THAT WAS HOW HE BETRAYED South African MINERS IN 1992. NOTHING GOOD WILL COME FROM HIM. HE SHOULD BE BEHEADED FOR THE ONE HUNDRED AND NINTY TWO MINERS THAT LOST THEIR LIVE AND FOR THE CITIZENS OF NIGERIA WHO WERE KILLED IN THE SOIL OF South Africa BECAUSE OF XENOPHOBIA HE INTRODUCED.
    NIGERIANS WILL NEVER FORGET AND THE RIGHT TIME HE WILL SURELY BE BEHEADED BY EITHER South African OR NIGERIANS. ESOLETO E AFRICA
    AMANGLA AWETU

  2. I AM BEWILDERED THAT NIGERIANS ARE STILL IN SOUTH AFRICA.

    I AM THOROUGHLY CONFUSED THAT NIGERIA COULD PUT UP AN ENTOURAGE OF ABOUT 15 PERSONS TO SOUTH AFRICA FOR GOD KNOWS WHAT.

    XENOPHOBIA ON NIGERIANS WAS

    -DELIBERATE.
    -PREMEDITATED
    -TACTICALLY EXECUTED
    -ABLY SUPPORTED BY THE GOVERNMENT OF THE DAY
    SO THE QUESTION IS WHY BOTHER WITH SOUTH AFRICANS?
    FOR THE MAYHEM UNLEASHED AGAINST NIGERIANS,THEY WILL GO UNDER SEVERE SERVITUDE ONCE AGAIN.IT MUST HAPPEN. APARTHEID WILL BE A CHILD’S PLAY
