The first group of Mozambican victims of xenophobia repatriated from South Africa arrives in Matola, Maputo province, today. The group is part of the approximately 400 Mozambicans who have expressed an interest in returning home after the attacks on foreigners in neighbouring South Africa.
The information was revealed exclusively to Radio Mozambique on Sunday by Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation spokesman Geraldo Saranga, who said transport arrangements were being made.
“We are working to document this group of people, to aggregate them in terms of how many men, women and children there are, to establish their health and arrange their transportation to Mozambique,” he said.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation announcements indicate that xenophobic violence in South Africa has already caused at least 10 deaths.
It is estimated that there are at least 8,000 Mozambicans living in neighbouring South Africa, mainly in Johannesburg, Durban and Nelspruit.
