March for solidarity with victims
Windhoek residents gathered at the Independence Museum earlier this week to march against the xenophobic attacks in South Africa.
The demonstrators walked to the South African High Commission in Jan Jonker Road chanting “Stop xenophobia, Africa is United,” to hand a petition to the High Commissioner and a letter addressed to South African President Zuma. The demonstrators carried colourful banners with the slogan “say no to xenophobia”. The petition was received by Mr Gareth Rees, Counsellor: Politics at the High Commission. Protestors Nina Amutenya, Tuyeni Amutenya, Sofia Simon and Prensley Useb joined the “March for Africa” in solidarity with their African brothers and sisters in South Africa.
