The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has set up dedicated emergency lines for Ghanaians in distress in South Africa.

This follows recent attacks on foreigners in that country.

In a statement, Ghana’s High Commission in South Africa said Ghanaian nationals in distress should contact the mission on telephone number +271-234-258-47/8 for urgent assistance.

The statement also disclosed that the Ghana High Commission together with the African Diplomatic Corps have met to prevent future attacks on other African nationals in South Africa as well as the looting of property owned by  African nationals.

In the past few days rioters have caused chaos in Johannesburg, South Africa’s commercial capital, torching vehicles and looting shops, many of which are owned by foreign nationals.

Some South African officials have blamed criminality instead of xenophobia.
