The South African government has told victims of recent xenophobic attacks not to expect any form of compensation.
Dr. Naledi Pandor, Minister of the Department of International Relations and Cooperation, said there was no provision for compensating those affected in the renewed attacks in the country.
In an interview with Reuters, Pandor said her country’s laws do not have provisions for such matters.
This is coming on the heels of officials of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration saying Nigeria would seek redress. Speaking in Abuja, Wednesday, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, insisted the Federal Government would press for compensation for the attacks and destruction of the businesses of Nigerians in South Africa.
The Federal Government had earlier demanded that Nigerians involved in the attacks should be recompensed.
