Xenophobia or Justice? Unpacking the Springs Town Incident, It is very disturbing to hear about the recent incident in Springs Town, Johannesburg, where a Nigerian man, claiming to be a pastor and also reported as a drug dealer, was forced to eat drugs that he was selling to South Africans by community members during a clean-up operation. This is an inhumane act and violation of human rights. It is also important to note that this is not an appropriate way to address the issue of drug dealing.
Xenophobia’s Harmful Reality
It is important to understand that the actions of this individual do not represent the values and morals of the majority of Nigerians living in and outside South Africa. The actions of a few individuals should not be used as a general means to stereotype and discriminate against the entire Nigerian community living in South Africa.
