Over the weekend, #PearlThusiMustFall trended in South Africa because the ace actress spoke against xenophobic killings in South Africa. Comrade Julius Malema of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) and plenty of Thusi’s fan have spurred her on courageously yesterday with #PearlThusiMustRise.

Thusi also remains strong and courageous on her condemnation of the killings of African immigrants in South Africa and the observance of colonial borders on the continent.
South Africans are for being anti-Africans and xenophobic tendencies yet some South Africans often condemn xenophobia whenever it surfaces.
Malema is one of the strongest anti-xenophobia sentiments globally. The condemnation of xenophobia during the last spate of attacks in South Africa last year was strongest through Malema than anyone.
It was reported that Malema condemned Xenophobia even more than the Presidents of most African countries who citizens were affected during the last attack in South Africa.
Late Ali Mazuri, Kenyan-born American intellectual said before he died in 2014 that: “South Africans perceived other Africans as new black colonialist who came to take from the limited resources they needed they should enjoy after apartheid”.
The late academic said South Africans detest Nigerians much more for this reason because Nigerians are more aggressive and domineering.
