Nigeria must take control of South African companies – Ruling party

Nigeria’s ruling party urged the government to nationalize South African companies operating in the West African nation in retaliation for xenophobic attacks on its nationals.

Relations between Africa’s two biggest economies have been tense following attacks on businesses run by migrant Africans in Johannesburg, which sparked reprisal raids by mobs on the offices of the South African mobile-phone company MTN Group Ltd. and stores operated by Shoprite Holdings in the commercial hub of Lagos and the capital, Abuja.

Cant make this **** up. So one crime is punished by another crime ie. stealing property. Awesome logic Captain Nigeria. I guess going by your frame of mind for every Nigerian in South Africa that kills or rob we should randomly select an innocent Nigerian and shoot them just to break even ?

Yeah, African mentality. Punish the absolutely innocent person for someone else's misdeeds. Sounds about right for this backwards continent.

African solutions seems to consist of an idea of theft and whenever there is some scapegoat to implement the idea they will grab at it.

The problem is simple, we South Africans are sick and tired of foreign people walking into our country, an estimated figure of 1600 people a day, border control by the government is almost non exsistant, our borders is a shame, our free Healthcare system is stressed, our housing system is failing, foreigners are working for half the salary as South Africans, an estimated figure of more than 20 million undocumented foreigners are living in South Africa, South Africa doesn't need foreigners in our country, when our borders were closed our economy was thriving now its collapsing and our currency is trading at 14:1 against the dollar, people have spoken we want our borders closed, no more room in our country even for our own people! Nigeria needs South Africans to turn around the **** hole country, otherwise Nigerians will be sitting in bush with no cellphones, we South Africans don't need foreigners in our country, it will turn into a sh! t hole like Nigeria

So the TL;DR to your post is that our country is what it is today because of foreigners? :unsure:

no our country is the way it is because of corruption, but the influx of undocumented foreigners adds to the way it is, did you notice the rand strengthened during the so called looting, this is because investors see it as a way better for the country, remember our country is not able to handle the estimated 20 million figure of undocumented foreigners, it adds stress to public services and most foreign shops are in no way contributing to Sars. The solution is stronger border and working visa controls similar to the UK and Australia then maybe our rand will get stronger than the dollar like the old days when we use to have one of the best guarded borders in the world, stronger rand lower inflation, overall better living

That post contains too much stupid for a single post. You should have broken it up into two posts.

So you're saying that it is the governments fault for having open borders. ANC had open borders to Zimbabwe letting millions in. So yes, I agree it is the ANC's fault.

Maybe South Africa should take control of Nigeria's 419 scam companies?

You are a genius. Investors just love riots, violence and instability while seeing cities burn right? They also fall over themselves to invest when they see SA company profits across Africa threatened which will in turn lower SA tax revenue promising an even weaker SA economy, yes?

Don't be a tit. The strengthening was due to global events like the latest US-China trade war updates. It would have strengthened more if the country had not been burning.
