Over 300 Nigerians evacuated from South Africa by local airline

Over 300 Nigerians evacuated from South Africa by local airline

Elsewhere, outgoing Inkatha Freedom Party leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi warned members of Parliament that the world was judging South Africa harshly for the continuing attacks on foreign nationals across the country. Then on Monday, we come here, we see that all is damaged.

Air Peace's offer to fly Nigerians home has been endorsed by the Nigerian government, which has been outraged over the latest wave of xenophobic violence to hit South Africa. But with the threat of violence lingering and a widespread belief shared among local WhatsApp users that Nigerians in particular are being targeted it is likely more people could choose to be repatriated.

"There is no government call by the government of Nigeria to evacuate its citizens", she said.

The rest are expected to touch down in Abuja today and Friday.

"A country asks you to leave. I expect the Nigerian government to put all protocols in place", he said. "In a case like this, what is required is that you are Nigerian whether your documents are in place or not, just go", he said.

Businessman Cosmos Jerry, who was at the Consulate to try and seek relief after seven of his cars were torched at his Johannesburg-based little dealership during the looting, was frustrated after he could not be helped.

Buthelezi was introducing a debate in the National Assembly on the recent incidents of violence across South Africans in which at least 12 people were killed, including 10 South Africans and two foreign nationals.

"I came here for something else but the place is packed and the matter can not be checked". "I left the business with my brothers".

"We are guessing to say how many Zimbabweans are there in South Africa today, some people were saying two to three million but we do not have exact figures as to how many Zimbabweans are there".

It took the intervention of the Nigerian High Commission for the South African authorities to make the procedure less hectic, but the rounds of clearance started taking a lot of time.
