Following the recent xenophobic attacks on Nigerians by South Africans, Ghanaians and Africans alike reacted to the constant attacks in South Africa.

The xenophobic attacks in South Africa attracted reactions from the presidents, celebrities and ordinary citizens all over the country.

Most Africans especially Nigerians and Ugandans have been targeted in attacks and videos emerging are very disheartening and horrible.

A continental discussion on what it meant to be African was rolled out which led to people calling on others to boycott South African owned businesses. Zambia went ahead and cancelled their International friendly match with South Africa.

African governments were condemning the South African government and calling on them to do more to protect African migrants and the Government of Ghana also released a statement condemning the attacks.

In the midst of all these where it was revealed that some Ghanaians were also attacked and injured and in what seems like bad timing, the Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Barbara Oteng Gyasi flew to South Africa with a delegation to sign a tourism agreement with South Africa.

The poor timing casts a dark shadow on what is a great initiative for both countries. In a Twitter thread, the ministry threw more light on what this new tourism agreement with South Africa entails…

However, others were of the opinion that the Ghanaian minister should have at least put this agreement on hold the wake of this renewed xenophobic attacks and these were their reactions towards the Minister.
