Banky W has condemned the incessant xenophobic killings in South Africa.
The situation, which has escalated into an all-out killing of foreigners, has drawn severe criticisms from many.
Recently, the attacks seem to be focused mainly on Nigerians and Banky W was quick to remind his fans on Twitter that when the late Nelson Mandela fought for the independence of the country, what he had in mind was totally different from what is happening now.
This is not the SA that Mandela fought and sacrificed for. This is not the SA that a lot of us have come to know and love. I just watched a video of a man burnt alive in front of a crowd. It's sick, and heartbreaking. "Hell must be empty because all the demons are here". Sigh (3)

This is coming after some Nigerians posted a video of an early morning attack on them, resulting in their having to flee for their lives.
