Namibia's Xenophobic Victims Named


By Desie Heita Windhoek New Era has obtained a list of Namibian nationals who are said to be victims of vicious xenophobic attacks in South Africa. The Namibian High Commissioner to South Africa, Phillemon Kambala, has confirmed to New Era that he had seen the list. However, he could not verify that individuals named were victims of xenophobic attacks. He said his office has received reports of individuals attacked and wounded in the xenophobic attacks in Cape Town. Kambala travelled to Cape Town yesterday afternoon to see for himself the situation on the ground. More than 35 000 foreign nationals - mostly Zimbabweans and Mozambicans - have fled South Africa since the ten days of violent attacks on foreign nationals, migrant workers, refugees and asylum seekers living in South Africa's informal settlements. The attacks have left 25 000 people displaced in Gauteng Province and 10 000 in Cape Town. The figures were given by the Red Cross in South Africa. The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) reported that more than 6,000 of the displaced people in Gauteng are children and women. Up to 56 people have died in the attacks.
