A South African woman shared a couple of tweets which Nigerians consider to be xenophobic and this has led to some sort of war between citizens of both countries on Twiter.
@sne_ndlovuSA, with the user name #BlackLivesMater, tweeted: “I don’t give a fuck that’s it’s not politically correct but Nigerians are a huge problem in SA.. Ghana deported 700k Nigerians also Cameroon did the same thing last year for similar reasons we are facing in SA by most of the foreigners…. Abahambe! Idc Idc
In reply, Nigerians called her out for her tweet. But she wasn’t deterred.
In another tweet, she wrote: “In Nigeria recently, the president signed a law into power that no foreigner can be given a work that a Nigerian can do.. and what do we do in South Africa? We welcome them like never before…”
Below are reactions to the tweet.
