Say NO to Xenophobia

Iam the Mayor of the Dawid Kruper Municipality. The municipal area borders the Namibian and the Botswana border. This area is known for its multi culturalism. We have different language groups and cultures living in harmony here.

I mention this because I find difficult to understand why people would discriminate against one another on the basis of colour,race,gender or ethnic group.

We have a large influx of foreign nationals to our municipal jurisdiction and we live in harmony with our brothers and sisters from the other parts of the African continent. In the Mayor’s office there is a special programmes officer who deal with the issuers around women, children, the elderly and foreign nationals.

The foreign nationals are given an opportunity to raise their issues via that official or directly with the Mayor.

I mention this because I believe that we can make a difference at the local municipal level. The officials in the municipality are handling foreign nationals and everybody else with respect and sensitivity.

I pay regular visits to the stalls of the foreign nationals and honour the invites which they send to me.

These are small but necessary interventions which can help in dealing with the wrong perceptions which people have about each other.
