|Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by Yupng(f): 12:25am On Sep 10|
It is quite a shame that some supposedly Nigerians who claim to reside in SA are here encouraging Nigerians to still visit South Africa despite the very glaring discrimination and maltreatment of Nigerians in SA.
I lived in SA for close to 3 years, both capetown and Johannesburg and I will state this clearly, South africans hates Nigerians with extreme passion across all levels of society. On a first glance, you might not see this, but just live among them for a while, you will begin to notice the deep hatred they have towards black africans, especially Nigerians.
This uprising will not stop, as their government also wants low income foreigners to leave. Stop encouraging Nigerians to go south africa where at all levels they are discriminated against. Besides, 80 percent of Nigerian's living in south Africa are extremely poor, as people over there would rather trust a snake than a Nigerian.
For once, Nigerians in SA please speak the truth. It is this falsified information you spread that makes many Nigerians rush to SA and end up jobless and go into illegal businesss.
Do you know how many Nigerians have been killed by south africans and their policemen? Because it has not happened to you doesn't mean it is not happening. If you have any respect for your life or you believe you have any sought of future, do not go to south Africa.
|Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by Geenosko: 5:19am On Sep 10|
Having read your post, I will say that you are deliberately twisting information to suit your narrative.
1. No Nigerian resident in SA on this platform has encouraged illegal migration to SA. I and others have spoken against it several times in this group.
Those coming for visit, we have always advised limit your visit to certain areas and leave at the end of your authorised stay.
2. Every life lost is a terrible loss but everyone who is honest with themselves knows that Nigerians who are killed by police are 99% drug related.
Even the advisory that the Federal government issued clearly said avoid "hot-spots and volatile areas"
The narrative that you are pushing suggests that the whole of South Africa is a war zone which is clearly not the case.
That you have experienced hatred from South Africans does not invalidate the account of people who haven't and it also doesn't invalidate yours either.
Can you point out with specific references the so called "falsified information" that Nigerians in SA have spread here?
Emotions are high but please let's be objective in our communication and present a balanced view of the situation and let people take an informed decision.
|Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by Juwohn: 7:51am On Sep 10|
I have been living in SA for close to 5years now. I have NEVER experienced the extreme hate that you mentioned. I have had a very good relationship with all my landlords (except one) and neighbours. I wonder where you stayed when you're here and what exactly you did that warrant that hate you mentioned.
80% of Nigerians are not poor. 80% of undocumented Nigerian immigrants may be poor anyways. Tbh, and I think I have mentioned here once, I am very reluctant staying in a neighborhood where Nigerians are alot too. We don't trust ourselves yoo so why would SAfricans trust us. I have seen pple come to this country with visit visa and then on arrival requesting for asylum - boko haram and other lies. It's just very sad the desperation.
Those who are here based on illegal businesses already have that in mind before coming. How do explain someone with a visit visa for 2weeks with a large box.
The number of Nigerians that have been killed in Nigeria by Nigerians is far more than those who have been killed in SA. Our different ethnic groups can't even live together peacefully but we want other people to be peaceful with us.
Killing is bad but we must be truthful with ourselves. If our country is good we won't be here. And that our country is bad doesn't mean we should cast our burdens on SA. And it's not only SA, the whole of Africa doesn't want us. I know an African country that would never let a NIGERIAN VISIT their country. No tourism, no visit except for business and by a reputable organization. It's sad but last last we'll be alright

|Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by slickruler: 12:47pm On Sep 10|
Thanks for this Bro.. You hit the nail at the head
|Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by slickruler: 12:55pm On Sep 10|
This is very misleading.. Very very very misleading..
This is my 11th month here. My First Month I stayed with a South African in his flat ( A work Colleague.). Not all South Africans are Xenophobic. The real problem is hunger/poverty/hatred (when una dey collect their women).
Lets tell ourselves the truth, 80-90% of Nigerians i have met here are here undocumented and Illegally. You applied for a visit visa and you have been here for 3-5 Years. No source of income, you resort to fraud and drugs. Giving the rest of your country men bad names.
I have met Nigerians who do Menial jobs from Mechanics to carpenters, uber and truck drivers. But a huge chunk gives the good ones a bad name. Its so bad that even when other Foreigners do something wrong they are easily tagged as Nigerians..
|Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by slickruler: 1:00pm On Sep 10|
Fear Fear People.. From the beginning of Time. Man has been none to Migrate in search of a better Life.
You mentioned AirPeace?? Is it not Propaganda Anyways.. Every Aboki with him Kettle...
|Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by slickruler: 1:02pm On Sep 10|
Hahahahahaha... You are very correct. Thats sounds crazy really.. Going door to door.. That is a big lie. Most of the image making rounds on Social media are old images and videos that did not even happen in South Africa.

|Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by morpheus24: 2:38pm On Sep 10|
Nigerians without a legitimate reason should desist from going to SA. If you are visiting, go enjoy your holiday and come back to your abode. If you wish to boycott visiting then find some other holiday destination.
If you are going to school when you finish find your way out of there, the opportunities after graduating are slim.
If you are going there to hustle, that time has passed, you are headed into a den of unemployed, hungry and very angry people. Find your way to some other place.
This is the truth!
|Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by Geenosko: 8:10am On Sep 11|
This is what we keep advocating here. SA is not a place to come and hustle. I hope people listen.
|Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by Jamestown123: 11:22am On Sep 11|
OK OK OK now. How many of you here have lived in the north before? This xenophobic of a thing ehh is exactly like this riot that do happen in the north. I could remember clearly, when those Hausa boys are hungry they will use that opportunity to start a riot and then loot many shops and they even kill some Christians. They call it religious war but it's a hunger war. So many people today are still afraid to go to north because of all these. But they don't really know that north is one of the most safest and peace loving place in naija.
|Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by MarcusO: 12:26pm On Sep 11|

|Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by Jamestown123: 3:49pm On Sep 11|
morpheus24:U don't know anything. And ur type talk without finding facts to back up ur claim. Except Borno state which is being partially control by Boko Haram, north I tell u my brother is a peaceful place especially Kano state.
|Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by morpheus24: 4:23pm On Sep 11|
I spent my college years in jaji and Zaria and have lived amongst Northerners.
Yes peaceful but build your house there now and stay, when their eye red, they will show you their peace.

|Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by tosintonero(m): 9:34pm On Sep 11|
I agree with everything that Yupng said here. I also use to live in South Africa (both Durban and Pietermaritzburg) and I can confirm that being a Nigerian in SA comes with negative psychological consequences. Xenophobia does not always mean you will be physically attacked, it is just the persistent feeling that you are not wanted and that you constantly have to prove that you are a good human being. For those advocating that other Nigerians should head to South Africa, ask yourself how many times have you being made to feel less of yourself, just because of your nationality. You and I know that most jobs in SA are on contract basis and we know how much Nigerians have to impress and work as slaves and pander to the black South African masters in order to get their contracts renewed. Even in the higher education where I worked, the students are most likely to give a Nigerian negative ratings when completing course and teaching evaluations just because they have been made aware that their feedback can cost you your job. So, many Nigerians pander to their bosses and their students in order to win their favour. How long are you willing to put up with that? You may not realise the impact that is having on your self-esteem now, but putting up to such nonsense is why South Africans think that they are doing Nigerians a favour by allowing them into their country or by giving them jobs. Many Nigerians are just too desperate and that need to stop because we are sending negative images that we are nothing without South Africa or that being in South Africa is a form of privilege.
