The Fighters League, a pressure group in Ghana has thrown its weight behind black foreigners living in South Africa.
In a statement, the group condemned the act of Afrophobia in the country.
“We stand in solidarity with Africans living in South Africa and commend the EFF for condemning the Afrophobia and educating South Africans on the need for African solidarity. We condemn the violence.”
The group also condemned the loud silence of African leaders about the “recurring” violence.
It asserted that the cause of the economic crisis in South Africa is not a result of the presence of other Africans in the country but the capitalism by which the political class rule the country.
“The political and financial elite of South Africa have successfully turned the capitalism introduced by colonisation to their advantage, keeping the majority of those dispossessed by apartheid in the same poverty that their fathers and mothers suffered”, it said.
It also pointed out that the hardship in the country cuts across the whole continent and can be solved by unity.
