Hanna Tetteh,  Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration has urged Ghanaians and other African nationals to be cautious of how they react to developments in South Africa since what is happening there can happen to any other country.

Ten people have so far been confirmed dead in xenophobic attacks in the rainbow nation.

The youth there are accusing black migrants of taking their jobs and opportunities.

Commenting on her twitter handle, she disclosed that, other nationals in Ghana have also raised concerns about treatment meted out to them by Ghanaians.

“It's important we learn lessons from the South African situation and not tolerate violence against migrants living & working in our midst.

“We have Citizens from other ECOWAS countries living & doing business in Ghana & sometimes their Embassies complain about their treatment.

“However we should recognize that this situation could happen anywhere where there are migrants engaging in economic/commercial activities,” she wrote.

Meanwhile, President John Mahama has asked the South African government to immediately put a stop to xenophobic attacks of fellow Africans and to ensure that perpetrators are brought to book. Read more Culprits must face justice - Prez John Mahama
