  1. Zimbabweans are taking your jobs? They should go back to their country? What about Indians, Chinese, Italians, Americans and other non-African people? You talk of Ubuntu yet you murder your brothers and sisters who live across a border drawn by Western imperialists when they divided Africa. You hate yourself that much!





  4. As a South African I feel that you are using the wrong footage for your report. Some of the footage have nothing to do with what's happening. I want to encourage you to do the right thing and report content that is applicable to the story

  5. Very disappointing Wion reporting. Verify your sources before feeding the world with incorrect information. Interview more South African officials as well.

  6. SA its ours it belong to SAns they must leave we wanna fix our country. They dont respect our citys

  7. As He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?” Jesus answered them, “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled. For all these things must happen, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines, epidemics, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. “Then they will hand you over to be persecuted and will kill you. And you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. Then many will fall away, and betray one another, and hate one another. And many false prophets will rise and will deceive many. Because iniquity will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. Matthew 24:3‭-14 MEV

    (Obs: From the beginning of the tribulation to the end there are 7 years. Near the end, the gospel will be preached to the whole world, which would be impossible without technology of global communication.)

    When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then you know that its desolation has drawn near. Luke 21:20 MEV

    So when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place,(…) Matthew 24:15 MEV

    “His armies shall rise up and desecrate the sanctuary fortress. They shall abolish the daily sacrifice and set up the abomination that makes desolate." Daniel 11:31 MEV

    “From the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away and the abomination that makes desolate set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days." Daniel 12:11 MEV

    (Obs: These events will take place after the construction of the third temple of Solomon in Jerusalem.)

    (…)then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. Let him who is in the field not return to take his clothes. Woe to those who are with child and to those who nurse in those days! Pray that your escape will not be in the winter or on the Sabbath. For then will be great tribulation, such as has not happened since the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever shall be. “Unless those days were shortened, no one would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. Matthew 24:16‭-22 MEV

    There will be signs in the sun and the moon and the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men fainting from fear and expectation of what is coming on the inhabited earth. For the powers of heaven will be shaken. Luke 21:25-26 MEV

    (Obs: In the age of technology, men know what is happening on the inhabited earth, no longer are they limited by local information.)

    Immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. Matthew 24:29‭-31 MEV

    (Obs: This is the sixth seal of the book of Revelation, the signs of the sixth seal match the signs of Matthew 24:29-30, the sixth seal is when the rapture happens; before the great tribulation, before the seven trumpets.)

    When these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, for your redemption is drawing near. Luke 21:28 MEV

    Because you have kept My word of patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation which shall come upon the entire world, to test those who dwell on the earth. Revelation 3:10 MEV

    (Obs: Rapture before the time of temptation, which will be the government of the antichrist during the great tribulation.)

    For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 1 Thessalonians 4:16 MEV

    (Obs: Rapture.)

    For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Matthew 24:38‭-‬39 MEV

    (Obs: People will not be eating and drinking and marrying during the great tribulation, therefore, rapture will happen before the great tribulation, when people are still distracted.)

    When they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor upon a woman with child, and they shall not escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:3 MEV

    (Obs: Sudden destruction near the rapture.)

    For the mystery of lawlessness is already working. Only He who is now restraining him will do so until He is taken out of the way. Then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth, and destroy with the brightness of His presence, 2 Thessalonians 2:7 MEV

    (Obs: Who is restraining the antichrist? Who is stopping the antichrist from rising? The elect; those who are saved and sealed by the Holy Spirit because of the Christ! When the elect are raptured, the antichrist will take over. Rapture will trigger the great tribulation and the government of the antichrist.)

    Two will be in the field; one will be taken, and the other left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken, and the other left. Matthew 24:40‭-41 MEV

    (Obs: Rapture.)

    Know this first, that there shall come scoffers in the last days who walk after their own lusts, and say, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things have continued as they were since the beginning of the creation.” 2 Peter 3:3‭-4 MEV

    (Obs: Apostasy of the last days, when more and more men are denying God and going after their own sinful desires.)

    But the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a loud noise, and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat. The earth also and the works that are in it will be burned up. 2 Peter 3:10 MEV

    (Obs: The destructions that will happen near the rapture, just as the days of Sodom and Gomorrah; the righteous is rescued and the judgements are poured upon the wicked. "like a thief in the night" means it will happen when you do not expect. "heavens will pass away" means the sky will vanish as a scroll that is being rolled up, which is mentioned in Revelation 6:14.)

    In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet, for the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 1 Corinthians 15:52 MEV

    (Obs: People around the world have been hearing trumpets from the sky in different times, it has been happening for a few years. When the last trumpet sound, the redeemed will be rescued and the great tribulation will begin.)

    He causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, so that no one may buy or sell, except he who has the mark or the name of the beast or the number of his name. Revelation 13:16‭-17 MEV

    (Obs: In the last days, no one will be able to buy or sell without a mark from the government/beast of the antichrist, which will take place during the great tribulation, which is at the door.)

    But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase. Daniel 12:4 MEV

    (Obs: In the last days, many people travel to many places and knowledge is increased.)

    “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16 MEV

    Behold, the Lord of lords is coming soon, repent now of all your sins — keep away from all sins — and abide in the only Savior and Lord Jesus the Christ (Yeshua, the Messiah) with all your heart, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

  8. The late Elvis Mbodazwe Nyathi who was burny to death was buried today in Umvutshwa cemetery, Bulawayo, Zimbabwe’s second largest city.

  9. They're chasing Africans out of South Africa.What about the Indians,Asians and Europeans.Fools never seems to amaze me.SMH!

  10. Any time you see civil unrest in any african nation you can bet your ass European descendants are pulling strings from a distance. Operation Dudula is a distraction from Operation Expropriation without compensation.

  11. South Africa men are lazy…they just want to drink and enjoy themselves… foreigners help South Africa to get their freedom

  12. South Africans are confused suffer trauma. They don't know that they are Africans so they hate black Africans the same way white people hate blacks. Foreigners are used as a scapegoat.

  13. What do I need in South Africa not even vacation. I will travel to a country which is ready to receive me.

  14. So South Africa has a whopping 35% unemployment rate and being the most developed country in Africa, is a magnet for people from all over the African continent? Yet folks are wondering why there is a backlash against immigrants? Many of whom do in fact take jobs and opportunities from native South Africans.

  15. It is the same situation in Europe. To many people, not enough houses, apartments, jobs, doctors etc, then when we try to close our borders and send back illegals we get condemned by the UN for "xenophobia".

  16. When;

    Britain drives out illegal foreign nationals and contravenes International Law
    Media – It is good for Britain because illegal foreign national are a burden for government


    America illegally and inhumanely expels asylum seekers and migrants at the border

    Media – US Government is doing a good job as illegal immigration has declined 12% in 10 years


    South African government fails to act out fear of being called xenophobic as previously the case.
    Consequently, the ordinary citizens collectively attempt to enforce the law accompanied by government law enforcement agencies – ie NO official documents allowing you stay in the country – Arrest and/ Go back home and return through legal means.

    South Africa should only pressurise their government to handle the excessive illegal immigration matter head-on without fear or favour through legal means while ensuring the dignity of those affected.

    For the two cases above, There's an isiXhosa idiom that says that translates to : "A crab will scold her children for walking sideways while she herself does the same"


  18. The main question is why this immoral genocide against their own black Africans while the strangers from other races are taking over.. very very sad

  19. Many South Africans could have so far learned a lot from foreign nationals but they are trying to solve problems through violent attacks on foreign nationals and it's has not worked because innocent South Africans die too. Wait and think🤔 don't be brain washed RSAs

    Most Immigrants know and have survival skills to can copy and learn from but all that brain washed people see is a threat, blinded by hatred.

    What jobs do foreign nationals take??? Jobs that most South Africans are not even attracted to, domestic work, working in the construction industry. Most they don't like touching dirty, they want to work in the offices or receive social grants and that's not possible.

    South Africa is what it is because of the sweat of foreign nationals who do the construction work of building houses, domestic work, agriculture industry. Appreciate!!!

    If it's not foolishness what is it then? Burning a mall, a Tuck shop where you buy food from and the following day you want government to provide, they destroy because they don't know how it feels to build and then someone just comes and destroy. Lazy stubborn people only have energy to destroy not to build.
    They must learn to appreciate foreigners and they will be blessed by their presence.
    Where were they what were they doing when foreigners started it all, Opening Tuck shops in locations Villages??? working in the construction industry??? Sleeping 😴

  20. This is where Nelson Mandela and others who call their selves Africa freedom fighters and revolutionist has brought us. When senseless things like this happen in Africa it’s called Xenophobia, but when a black man with black sense is being humiliated just like this in Europe or America, it is racism. Africa will always remain in the dark with this mentality because we are not ready to move forward. South Africa as a country that has nothing to offer to humanity is complaining of foreigners taking their jobs. Forgetting that they little organised now because there are still 7.9% of whites in the country. Let the whites leave totally, i bet you in five years time South Africa will be total mess with total population of blacks

  21. So WION apparently compiles videos from racial incidents and put them in an incident where South Africans are peaceful addressing their frustration with illegal immigrants. Only one video that is of the incident, the rest are for other incident and this raises our eyebrows as South African subscribers.

  22. Virgin Mary appeared in Bayside, New York and said there would be a race war in South Africa , and it would go up to the Northern part of Africa. And there would be a race war America with machine guns going off. Bayside Shrine .org.

  23. why do you show videos that has nothing to do with xenophobic attacks Sending out false images to enhance you report shame on you.

  24. Before watching this I knew this will be a hit piece against operation Dudula. Fighting by the book for South Africans first is wrong in South Africa? Don't fall for such hit pieces.

  25. This is why YouTube blocked you a few days ago WION. The videos you posted have nothing to do with Xenophobia. Take this down, and do the right thing 👎👎👎

  26. Poor reporting! Disappointing in fact. These attacks are always sparked by an incident when a foreigner kills a South African. This one was sparked by 7 SAns killed by a foreigner. SA is struggling with high levels of unemployment and a high level of foreigners who do criminal work in SA. They hijack cars and take them to other countries. They sell drugs and human traffick SA girls. What is going on here is that SAns are fighting for their lives. People are suffering and honestly don't need to be living under these conditions. It's about fighting criminality of the highest order but of course it won't end well if people have taken the law into their hands. Do proper reporting and investigate. Go to Hillbrow find out what's happening. Don't use unrelated footage. This is poor coming from you.

  27. White people got everything down their but you want to attack the people who are oppressed just like you……you people have been broken….you scared to direct that same energy to the white man because you know better. Those colonial scars still exist on your minds and your hearts. What is it going to take for our people to wake up??? Or will we wait until it’s too late?
