Xenophobia in South Africa.

After reading Pusch Commey's lead piece on the xenophobia in South Africa, "A national disgrace" (NA July) and Cameron Duodu's "Who will save South Africa" (NA, July), I asked myself, "how could black South Africans inflict such terrible treatment on fellow Africans? How could they easily throw away their past, when the entire African continent stood with them in their years of need during the apartheid era?

How did things get so far? What is the real cause of this barbarity? Today it is xenophobia, tomorrow it will be something else. Who knows?
