The Ghana High Commission in South Africa cautions Ghanaians living there against violence

Following a warning issued by groups of South Africans to assault foreigners in the nation, the Ghanaian High Commission in South Africa (SA) has advised Ghanaians residing there to exercise caution.

According to a statement from the High Commission, people claiming to speak for groups opposed to the presence of foreigners have announced or aired threats to attack, rusticate, or drive out foreigners from their occupations or workplaces starting in September 2022.

“Whilst recognizing that this is not a government or state policy, such activities by individuals or groups could degenerate into violence aimed at foreigners or threaten their lives, safety and livelihood,” the statement said.

“The Mission would thus advise members of the Ghanaian community to be vigilant to any such incident, restrict their movements to safe areas, avoid mass gatherings and refrain from engaging in activities that could result in conflicts, brawls or deterioration in their safety,” it added.
