This is the most difficult thing for me to do, but I must post what is happening. There is so much tension in South Africa because of lack of trust and unfriendly manners among the indigenous people. This morning, I heard the shameful news that Xenophobia may raise its ugly heads again in South Africa. This is due to the unfortunate incident that happened when South Africans decided to mob a Zimabawean, but whatever may happen, I feel killing one another should be the last thing in our hearts.
When I was growing up, my mother used to cook and keep portions of strangers in our kitchen, when I became married, I began to cook and leek portions of strangers too, I now find it difficult to believe that there are people, who have enough and never think about survival of fellow human beings. We know where the blame lies; Zimbabwe is undergoing a economic depression which has forced the citizens to move to tehir neighbouring countries, especially South Africa which is one of the fast and consistent developing economy in Africa, it follows Botswana.

Humanity is one, this really reminds me that in Nigeria, during the apartheid regime, we were so involved that as a child; I thought South Africa was part of Nigeria and that Mandela Nelson was my uncle, only to realise that South Africa is another country. This may be why the Holy Book said we may not enter the kingdom of God if we do not have the innocence of a child. Please pray against Xenophobia today.
The first attempt to visit a place in this phase of my training for transformation was to visit Nelson Mandela;s Section E in Robben Island. Fortunately, Desmond Tutu was around that day to visit the former prison. I wept all through our journey back to when I got to the solitary confinement of Sobikwe; who was in prison as an official government visitor, after six year in solitary confinement, he lost his speech and became mentally deranged adn dies few months later.
That we were unjustly mistreated does not mean that we must mistreat others, I believe that our experiences, good or bad should always help us to relate fairly with others, and do as we would done by Please pray for humanity.
There is a new lessn in my Transformation training; it is about the Wheel of Fundamental Human Needs, I realise that all human needs are the same, but the ways these needs are met are different, every reaction of human being is as a result of unmet needs. If we can always learn to overlook things that others do, and just believe that a need is crying for attention, He who kills a man is not greater that God. Killing a fellow human being is uncalled for and unjust, this must be condemned amongst us. We are watching our steps as we were instructed that the question the irate mob would aske is what is teh indigenous word for 'elbow'; a foreigner will only know it as a 'small knee' in South African dialect while South African indigenes will pronounce it fluently as it ought to be pronounced as 'ingxoza'.
It is high time the World come together to address the articial seperation we fuel among us and begin to live in love. If the root is nourishing, no one will flee to a strange land and once South Africans were sojourners in strange lands too. The best thing is to come to a roundtable conference and leaders find amicable solutions to avoid the spread of this and further recurrence in other regions. A source reveaeled to me that the killing has not stopped, it happens underground always. the big question is; when are we going to recognise, accept and love our neighbours just as the Holy Books preach?
