Lindela Repatriation Centre Condemns Xenophobic Violence

Gauteng, South Africa -- (SBWire) -- 05/21/2015 --Lindela Repatriation Centre is a place of waiting for undocumented migrants in South Africa. We do not in any way support or encourage Xenophobia or any other type of racial discrimination. Rather it is our role and responsibility to ensure that suspected and illegal foreign nationals in South Africa are provided with a safe place to stay while Home Affairs determines their legal status and arranges for transportation back to their countries.

BOSASA is proud to be part of the team that provides catering services and ensures a clean, maintained and secure environment for these migrants to stay in during the period of waiting.

We express our deepest condolences and pray for the families of our African brothers and sisters that have lost loved ones, businesses and even homes due to the violent Xenophobic attacks. We especially pray to God for peace in our land and a united Africa.

Let the words of Nelson Mandela echo through the hearts of our people as we all do our part to put a stop to Xenophobia:

"No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite."

Leviticus 19:33-34

When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them. The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the Lord your God.
