Former Deputy Sports Minister, Joseph Yamin, has appealed to all African leaders to suspend all trade relations with South Africa to register their displeasure with the ongoing xenophobic attacks in  that country.

Although the cause of the ongoing attacks is not known, unconfirmed reports link the attacks to a supposed illegal drug business gone wrong between Nigerians and some South Africans contradicting earlier reports of Nigerians taking up business of south African youth.

Speaking to Ekourba Gyasi on Atinka AM Drive, Joseph Yamin, stated that South Africans are operating in a free environment in Ghana without restrictions.

Sharing his personal experience, Yamin recounted how he was denied access to a Forex bureau in South Africa because he had left his passport in his hotel room.

“Every trade between South Africa and other countries in Africa should stop. Are there no South Africans in Ghana?  They are misbehaving and all African leaders have gone mute over it. Have you ever heard  of a South African  being abused in Ghana? You cannot even use dollar in South Africa yet they are moving and working  freely elsewhere”, he fumed.
