South Africans have once again gotten their name in the news once again over their attacks on other African Nationals claiming people from the other countries have taken all job opportunities in the country leaving them South Africans jobless.
Due to this, the country is in a mess where some looters renewed their xenophobic attacks on foreign nationals, especially Nigerians.
According to Oluwatosin Oluwole Ajibade popularly known as Mr. Eazi, South Africans are fighting the wrong enemy since the real enemy is poverty.
Mr. Eazi took to twitter to post this.
The tweet reads: “Fight the real ENEMY!! Fight POVERTY!!!!”
