Four persons on Friday threatened to burn down the South African High Commission in Accra in the heat of the xenophobic attacks on foreigners in South Africa.

South Africa's High Commissioner to Ghana Ms Lulama Xingwana who disclosed this to the media in Accra on Monday said, the Commission has been receiving threats from persons she did not name.

She said, four men stormed the High Commission's premises Friday and forcefully tried to enter the offices but their effort was thwarted by the security attachment at the Commission.

“After that, they threatened that they will be coming back to burn the High Commission’s offices,” Ms Xingwana revealed.

She said the threats have been reported to the police, “and we have received the support from the police to make sure that the premises are safe”.

The Commission has staff who are both Ghanaians and South Africans and must all be protected, Ms Xingwana said.

The xenophobic attacks are being fuelled by South African nationals who feel foreigners have taken over their jobs leaving them unemployed.

But Ms  Xingwana unequivocally condemned the xenophobic attacks, stressing that South Africans who want jobs must go through the proper channels to secure one.
