The South African High Commission in Ghana has stated that that no Ghanaian was killed in the ongoing xenophobic attacks in South Africa.

According to the South African High Commissioner to Ghana, Ms. Lulama Xingwana, no Ghanaian died in South Africa.

She said a Ghanaian man, who was found dead on the streets of Durban, the centre of the attacks on black Africans from other countries by their fellow black South Africans, died of an epileptic attack, according to an autopsy report.

Xingwana also said four other Ghanaians, a man, two women and a baby who were found dead in a salon at Heibron, did not die from xenophobic attacks.

Earlier reports indicated that, four Ghanaians were found dead in a salon in Heibron in Free State, South Africa.

It was unclear if they were killed through the ongoing xenophobic attacks in the country or died of natural causes.

The Embassy contacted the South African Police who confirmed the deaths and additionally stated that they were found in a salon, which was locked, and upon breaking in they found the bodies of the four persons all of whom were foaming at the mouth.

According to the Embassy, the bodies have since been removed for post mortem examinations to be conducted.

Last Friday, Ms Hannah Tetteh confirmed the killing of a Ghanaian, Emmanuel Quarcoo, in xenophobic attacks in South Africa.

According to her, the deceased was found  with head injuries, by the roadside in Umlazi on the Simlane Drive, east of Johannesburg.
