- Asanda cannot believe that the people of Mzansi are violently killing their fellow Africans
- She recorded a video airing her views and put across some strong points
- Some forget that it was our neighbouring African countries that helped us during apartheid or how they openly accept our celebs and even the general public still to this day
Ex-Generations: The Legacy actress Asanda Foji opened up about how she feels about xenophobia in a touching video.
Briefly.co.za knows that Asanda is not afraid to speak her mind, especially when it is to do with something she really cares about.
Asanda recently recoded a video where she shared her views about xenophobia with her fellow South Africans.
Looking back at the days of apartheid, Asanda highlighted how neighbouring African countries stepped forward and helped us fight the battle, and that without them we may have never won.
Countries like Kenya, Nigeria, and Somalia took in people of colour who fled Mzansi to escape apartheid, and never once did they turn someone away. We are killing the people who once saved our people.
Asanda got very emotional during the video and said that what is going on “is complete nonsense”. The outspoken actress can’t fathom why people are violently killing their brothers and sisters.
"It is wrong. They're people just like you. You don't have a right to kill anyone's child. South Africans sitting there, it is not your place to kill someone's child," said Asanda with a very heavy heart.
Lastly, Asanda pleaded for the people of Mzansi to stop committing these atrocious crimes against their fellow Africans. Change needs to happen.
