Fear of reprisal attacks: South Africa has closed Consulate in Lagos

Following protests by Nigerians against attacks on  foreigners in South Africa, the country on Wednesday announced the closure of its consulate in Lagos. The country’s Consul-General in Nigeria, Sam Monaisa, said this in a statement to the South African Business Forum. According to him....
the closure would remain in force until Thursday. Although the situation in Durban has calmed down, he was concerned about the Nigerians that were being repatriated.
Meanwhile, South Africa’s cabinet has warned that companies operating in the rest of Africa might be targeted, just as Johannesburg-based Sasol Ltd. announced it was repatriating South African employees working on projects in Mozambique for their own safety.(source: ngPunch)
