The Ghanaian High Commission in Pretoria, South Africa has advised Ghanaian residents in the country to be vigilant ahead of a series of protests by the South Africans against the presence of foreigners on their lands.
The Commission in a statement on Tuesday, September 6 noted that last month, some groups in South Africa threatened to attack and rusticate foreigners from their workplaces and the country beginning this month.
The Commission added that the planned attack is not a government or state policy and could degenerate into violence aimed at foreigners.
