A gory video has been uploaded to YouTube purportedly showing “the graphic and senseless killings of Nigerians and other Africans in South Africa” in South Africa.
The graphic contents show a man being mercilessly beaten and bleeding heavily upon repeated insults by his South African attackers.
The video comes amidst heating conflicts in South Africa.
Influential Nigerian Prophet T.B. Joshua addressed Africans and called for unity and calmness in the wake of the violence.
ADDRESS TO ALL AFRICANS – PROPHET T.B. JOSHUA
“No African country can succeed alone. Africans need each other to develop. For example: West Africa needs Southern Africa and Southern Africa needs West Africa to develop. North Africa needs East Africa and East Africa needs North Africa to develop. Indeed, we are indispensable to each other; we cannot do without each other. No one is self-sufficient.
Everyone has a contribution to make. Whether you are poor, rich, immigrant or refugee – you have a contribution to make.
With regard to issues of illegal immigrants, drugs and other crimes, our duty is to work with the law enforcement agencies by giving them useful information. It is only when these agencies fail that we can lawfully protest.
Dear Africans, we should not let other fellow Africans feel unwelcome to our countries.
Africa has neglected her youths. Africa has abandoned the youths to themselves. Africa has failed to make provision for the youths, whereas tomorrow’s Africa is the youths.
When I think about the future of Africa, I have sleepless nights. Everything looks gloomy, frustrating, hopeless, dark, darksome, shadowy, shaded, dull, sunless and unilluminated.
We all take the responsibility for this state of affairs. What then is the way forward? The Lord has instructed me to make myself available and I know God, in His infinity, must have touched other Africans, so that we can come together to remedy this challenge.
Long live the future of Africa (youth). Long live Africa. May God bless you!”
