The minister of Transport of Tanzania on Thursday announced that the country’s air carrier has suspended all flight to South Africa.
Isack Kamwelwe in his announcement said its purpose and reason is to stop flights to the unsettled and chaotic state which was in a bid to protect passengers, Reutersreports.
“You are aware that there is an ongoing violence in South Africa whereby the youth have taken laws into their hands.
“Due to that, we have decided not to transport passengers to the destination where their lives will be in jeopardy.”
At least 17 people have been killed and hundreds of others arrested since attacks blossomed against immigrants of African extraction.
SaharaReportershad earlier revealed that at least 127 Nigerians had been murdered in South Africa between January 2016 and August 2019.
