I have lived and seen the trauma this various xenophobic attacks have on people, having spent 20 years of my life in SA myself. I command the initiative brought forward by Mrs Mamie-Esther Bujakera. Somebody I also know personally from SA. This is an opportunity for Canada to not only help provide safety, security and opportunity to all affected in SA, but also enrich Canada by importing skills and work force that is so much requested.

Siwa Hussein (Johannesburg, 2019-09-05)


Feeling sorry and disappointed, men's enemy is a man himself .
Violence does not solve anything , here we are witnessing how uneducated people cannot think before to act. Lives are in danger , why ? For reasons that don't stand still.
Whatever is happening, it's just a way of shifting a blame.
Looking for the slightest opportunity to blame their failure on foreigners.
Anyway we shall take this in our own hands.
We are not weak, we face problems how it comes.
Going to ask help to canada make us slaves still... Running for solutions to our masters... shame .
Africa will deal with it's own problems.
We have leaders here too, they shall find an understanding.
Most want heaven without death.
Let's focus on the real problem.

When brothers are fighting to death , a stranger inherits their property.

Let's be very careful .

Thank you . I didn't sign 😎
