Why are we alienating other Africans

I am very concerned about the letter of last week Wednesday, "Screen aliens to curb crime".

I am very concerned about the letter of last week Wednesday, "Screen aliens to curb crime".

How can the writer claim he is not xenophobic and yet call other human beings alien? Corruption in South Africa begins with government and ends with the man on the street.

This person is defending the borders that were created by colonialism to oppress and exploit Africans during the European scramble for Africa.

These borders were created to divide Africans so that they can never unite against the forces of darkness. While we are not allowed to move freely in our Africa, the capitalists can move freely in their quest for oppression and exploitation in Africa. We should open our borders to other Africans seeking a better life and make sure that every person is identified so that when crime is committed, it can be traced. Those who commit crime should be dealt with accordingly.

I blame the Institute for Social Security Studies for inciting violence in this region. How did they come to the conclusion that three out of five foreign nationals are involved in crime? Can this institute tell us how many foreign nationals are in South Africa now?

Can they give the methodology they used to come to their conclusion?

Africans have always moved from one place to another in search of a better life.
