Naledi Pandor, South Africa’s Minister of foreign affairs, in an interview has disclosed that many Nigerians in South Africa are drug dealers.
She was asked by eNCA if security agencies have helped in protecting foreigners including Nigerians, Naledi Pandor said;
“I would appreciate them in helping us as well to address the belief our people have and the reality that there are many persons from Nigeria dealing in drugs in our country.
“I believe that Nigerian nationals are involved in human trafficking and other abusive practices.
“These kind of assistance of ensuring that such persons do not come to our country will be of great assistance to our nation.”
Recall that shops belonging to Nigerians were looted while their properties including cars were burnt during the recent xenophobic attack in South Africa which sparked an outrage. Though the Nigerian government has demanded for compensation of Nigerians affected by the attack, Pandor had earlier stated that there is no provision for such.
