As an organization based in South Africa, we, together with the rest of the world, are shocked into attention at the exigency in Chibok Nigera, that, till today has been left unattended. Since our establishment, in 2009, we have been trying to bring to our Government’s attention that human trafficking, though illegal, is ubiquitous in our country and the rest of Africa.
The situation in Nigeria is appalling and demands the attention of not only Africans but of the rest of the world. The Concerned Community wholly expresses its disapprobation and condemnation of this brutal act of inhumanity. It is particularly disturbing that the Nigerian Government has not lifted a finger in retaliation with regards to this atrocity.
As South Africa is a member of the African Union, it is our obligatory duty to appeal to our African counterpart to do all in his power to ensure the safe return of our girls. This indescribably insensate incident has been neglected far too long. The leader of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau, threatened to sell and marry off these girls in the name of Allah.
We plead with our Government to do something about this act against Humanity.
