The Nigerian Scourge

For the past few months, residents of an area north of Pretoria called Kameeldrift have been terrorized. Kameeldrift is an area of smallholdings and therefore a soft target, similar to South Africa's farms, on which more than 2000 white farmers have been murdered to date. Multiple robberies and murders have taken place in recent months in Kameeldrift. It is being reported that a syndicate has been arrested in a luxury townhouse complex. They are suspected of being involved in the Kameeldrift murders and robberies.

Although South African papers will as a rule not report on the race of criminals, unless they are white, in which case the left-wing press will waste no time in loudly screaming "racism", the Beeld newspaper hints that the suspects are Nigerians. Nigerian currency was found in the suspects' possession. Nigeria is notorious for the corrupt nature of its society and its huge number of criminals. So much so, that a common advance-fee fraud is known by its Nigerian penal code designation, the so-called 419 scam.

The suburb of Hillbrow in Johannesburg, formerly a cosmopolitan area similar to Tribeca or Soho in Manhattan, is these days one of the most dangerous places on the planet. It is a hotbed of vice including drugs and prostitution. It is a well-known fact that Hillbrow's drug trade is controlled by the Nigerians which infest and contaminate the area.

Why are Nigerians being allowed into South Africa at all, given their enormously high rates of participation in crime? It would not be an exaggeration to say that a huge dent would be made in South Africa's crime problem if a) Nigerians were declared persona non grata, and b) all Nigerians rounded up and deported back to their hell-hole of a country.

Why must the innocent citizens of South Africa be exposed to the scourge of Nigerians?
