Nigeria Should help Address “Belief & Reality” that its Citizens are Dealing Drugs & Engaging in Human Trafficking in SA – Foreign Minister



South Africa’s Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Naledi Pandor, has said that Nigeria should help her country in addressing the “belief and reality” that some Nigerians are dealing drugs and engaging in human trafficking in her country.

Pandor was responding to rumours that Nigerian security forces had indicated interest in being part of investigations on xenophobic attacks in South Africa.

Pandor said:

I would appreciate them in helping us as well to address the belief our people have and the reality that there are many persons from Nigeria dealing in drugs in our country.

I believe that Nigerian nationals are involved in human trafficking and other abusive practices.

These kind of assistance of ensuring that such persons do not come to our country will be of great assistance to our nation.

    This lady is tone deaf. Deflecting the issue does not resolve it. As a Foreign Minister, you don’t talk or act on your beliefs, you work with facts

    This woman is insane and an idiot. She is accusing and tarnishing the reputation of every Nigerian by saying that Nigerians are drug traffickers and human traffickers. Some Mexicans, Americans, Canadians, Australians, British etc. Indulge in criminal activity nobody blankets a nation like this as criminals she must be insane. Would it proper for Nigerians to now label south Africans as looters, murderers, rapist, addicts, drug dealers, thieves, armed robbers etc. Simply because a tiny portion of their population commits these heinous crimes, the answer is no. She needs to shut the hell up and should be fired by her president she is incompetent period, inciting black on black violence with dangerous rhetoric, that is saying to the idiots in their poverty ridden townships that Nigerians are the target.

    These are not the words of a leader. You mediate as leader and you talk of the facts you know not the hearsay. Pls we worked for the property we have,we are the poorest country. It means she doesn’t care about the lives of the people and economy of the country .
