The Chairman of the Ghanaian Association at Kempton Park in South Africa, Wofa Atta has taken a swipe at the Africa Union (AU) for its “indifferent posture” towards the xenophobic attacks in South Africa following renewed violence in some parts of the country a couple of weeks ago.

He says contrary to their duties of ensuring international co-operation and promoting peace, security, and stability on the continent, the leaders of AU are standing aloof to the acts of xenophobia in South Africa, calling for its outright dissolution.

“In all this, what is the role of AU and what are the leaders doing? Nothing; they are not doing anything, they are not working. I think that the institution needs to be dissolved because it is of no benefit to us,” he said in an interview on Okay FM’s morning show programme, Ade Akye Abia.

“The death of the former president of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe has ignited several conversations about the country. But for many years, nobody has turned their attention to the economic situation of that country and the suffering of its citizens. What has the AU been up to all this while?” he queried.

Wofa Atta further refuted claims that expatriates in South Africa, particularly blacks are taking the jobs of the indigenes of the country and preventing them from making ends meet.

“If there is anything at all then we are rather creating jobs for them to do. Some of their fashion designers, for instance, have taken advantage of the authentic Kente we bring from Ghana and are making different designs out of it. It is a major source of employment over here,” he said.

He bemoaned the recurrence of the xenophobic attacks, especially the most recent one and cautions of worse actions in future and advised Ghanaians living in the affected areas against same.

“The situation doesn’t seem to want to die down anytime soon. If it continues like this and will endanger our lives, we will come back home because there is no difference between Ghana and South Africa. If our compatriots in Ghana are surviving, then we will also survive,” he said.
