  1. This is a tragic situation. Hard working individuals are subject to judgement due to the actions of criminals. Then the criminal elements who have taken atvantage of these people's strife need to be rooted out of society. If it's not spoken about as to why this keeps occuring it won't end.

  2. When people say black South Africans are lazy, they don't know what promises were made starting in 1991 to appease a volatile country on the verge of mass Civil unrest.

    The long term South African project that began in 1994, to reverse about 112 years of colonial and apartheid rule and get black South Africans on par with their fellow white South Africans, the new social contract per say, was not communicated as having provisions for a vast asylum or economic refugee programme.

    The project has recently only made to fruition some goals from 27 years ago only now. The

  3. The question how did all started, cause some one much have done some thing to make them annoyed , before they stool up to act like this, all I will say is if you go to other country, repeat thier laws and rules, that is it

  4. Fake news! The headline is misleading, Not more than 200 Nigerians left South Africa at this point. Some if not most will be back in no time. Of course South Africans would welcome all hundreds of Nigerians who are drug lords to be vacated or incarcerated.

  5. South African going after the African brother and sister who trying to help bring jobs and skills to the lifestyle. The White man took away everything from them they afraid to go after them, but instead attacking the own sad..

  6. you do not like your African brother and your sister, it is a very very shame from South African people. The years 2008 and 2015 and today 2019 again you attack Africans without nothing

  7. Repatriated or they are leaving voluntarily? Al Jezeera you just want to make the news to sound well by captioning it with “REPATRIATION”!
    Al Jezeera you are now silent you no longer carry Nigerian news with all the killings that is going on under the man you help to put in power in 2015 you and CNN? In 2015 you were reporting every inch of the election, now that you have a lot to report for the whole world to hear and see you are silent!

  8. I'm ADOS and have read every comment so far. My conclusion is what is going in on South Africa is a real world example of black NATIONALISM versus PAN-AFRICANISM. The South Africans and ADOS share similar histories in dealing with face to face white oppression. Both of our groups stayed put and fought for our respective gains…black South Africans are blessed to be in the most developed sub-Saharan country…ADOS are blessed to be in the richest country on Earth. The results in mentality are virtually the same. Both of our groups are proud of our accomplishments…the difference is ADOS is 13% of USA population while 90% of South Africans are black. Over here in the USA the great debate among ADOS is if pan-africanism is better for us to pursue than nationalism. What we see plainly is that pan-africanism cannot work right now. Black unity seems to be a myth. We see clearly that black people on the motherland DO NOT IDENTIFY WITH ONE ANOTHER ON SKIN COLOR…it is based upon LINEAGE. Black South Africans as a whole have it better than all other blacks on the continent of Africa…and they ARE NOT FEELING IT when pan-africanism says your country belongs to alllllllll of us…open your borders and embrace alllllllll of your fellow black brothers and sisters from wherever. The black South Africans are saying Nah Fuq Dat Shhhh you niqqas need to go home if your paperwork ain't right…if you breaking our laws you gotta go. The pan-africanist minded foreigner blacks refuse to up and leave. Why? From where I sit I'd love to have a majority black nation of my very own to return to. The answer is simple…development. It is against human nature to downgrade. It is hard to go from good roads, stable electricity and clean water to your own country where the situation is more medieval. Pan-Africanism can work, but not at this current time. In order for Pan-Africanism to work each majority black nation must be similarly yoked…it cannot be every black person just rush to South Africa because they got it going on while leaving the other African nations underdeveloped. Each African nation has to develop their own infrastructures and economies close enough to South Africas SO THAT South Africans can go "eat at that country's table" (get good jobs) just as others go eat at South Africas table. Quid pro quo. Until that day arrives…which I admit may never come. Nationalism beats pan-africanism. Why? Human nature. I am ADOS. I have no dire reason to get my passport…I am in the richest country…for me to go live permanently in any majority black nation may be too big of a step down (no shade thrown). I'm very comfortable in my nation. However, I see Nigerians here…Somalians…Congolese who are terrified of President Trump saying all foreigners must leave the USA…which he can do. Whatever the USA gives a foreigner, the USA can take away. Why are they terrified? Because life is better here than where they come from. They don't want to downgrade…exactly as the black foreigners in South Africa don't want to vacate because of the downgrade. Human nature is the root cause of all this squabbling. The Black South Africans are comfortable in their developed nation. ADOS are comfortable in our developed nation. It is the uncomfortable in their underdeveloped nations who migrate to greener pastures in more developed nations. Black people are not a monolith. It is obvious that blacks blessed to be comfortable in their own nations become NATIONALISTIC while those who are not become PAN-AFRICANISTS. After reading all these comments now I can understand why the black foreigners here in the states fear ADOS. We see re-classifying ourselves from African-American into ADOS as a display of our nationalism in pursuit of our reparations…they are deeply concerned that it will turn into us becoming xenophobic…which ultimately would force them to return home…which goes against human nature because of the downgrade in lifestyle. I do not condone the South African's violence, I also do not condone anyone breaking the South African's laws. What needs to be done is each and every majority black nation needs to focus on getting as closely developed as possible to South Africa…that would greatly mitigate illegal migration to South Africa…and would encourage South Africans to travel abroad to other African nations…as well as encouraging the African diaspora to visit. We are all black people. I want the best for us all, however, each group must stand on our own…only then can black unity truly be achieved.
