AU Warns Africans Against Travelling to US After Killing of Blacks
The Africa Union (AU) has issued a travel advisory to African citizens, warning them against travelling to the United States of America (USA).
According to the caution notice dated 3rd October 2016, the rampant killings of unarmed black men posed a great danger for Africans visiting the US.
“The African Union warns the continent’s citizens of continued instability in the United States of America (USA). The number of unarmed black civilians murdered has dramatically increased. The potential for civil unrest is high in parts of Charlotte North Carolina, Milwaukee Wisconsin, Dallas Texas and other major cities,” the statement read in part.
The AU noted that due to the high-risk levels in the First World Country, official AU government tours to the US had been suspended.
Africans have been cautioned of a looming attack on black people in America as the political atmosphere heats up.
“Things can get out of hand anytime. The situation is more serious now that the USA is preparing for the presidential elections in a month’s time.” the travel advisory highlighted.
The warning comes days after a Ugandan native Alfred Olango was shot on Tuesday in the San Diego suburb of El Cajon by police.
According to the 30-year old’s sister, she had called for help from the police when her brother, who is mentally ill, started convulsing. It was then that Olango was shot in front of her.
However, the police stated that Olango had ignored repeated calls by officers to remove his hand from his pocket and one officer used a taser on him, while another drew his gun and fired.
“At one point, the subject rapidly drew an object from his front pants pocket, placed both hands together and extended them rapidly toward the officer taking up what appeared to be a shooting stance. At this time, the officer with the electronic control device discharged his weapon,” the police statement read.
Africa is as dangerous for Africans as the United States is to all black people. This is disingenuous. If African governments can guaranty life,liberty and opportunity to citizens then Africans in the USA will return to help build the continent. Stop day light robbery of the wealth and resources of the continent for your family and friends. This should be for the common good.
Ola is correct. It is the true way and is what’s in mind once things get stable over here in America. The media exaggerates things here, it’s more about economics. I live just south of Milwaukee Wisconsin, USA.
You live in dirty racine projects
No projects in Racine like those in Lagos or Nairobi. Please do not throw stones.
YOU GUYS WOULD SAY ANYTHING TO BE IN THE US ANYWAY ITS YOUR LIFE
@Anonymous GTFOH. Keep thinking that. News alert. The majority just come to the US, get the money, AND LEAVE. Looks like the great US is the ones that’s on the short end of the stick. Also, remember this, if not for Africa and it’s resources, which the US gladly exploits, the US would cease to exist. Before you want to be SMART ASSES start running your mouth, at least have a clue to facts.
An anononymous poor @$$ grammar user would leave a ridiculous comment to strangers. You have absolutely no clue what ‘those guys’ desire. But, it’s your life.
I think everyone is missing the message. This is not about resources, and which country is the best. It’s the fact that people are dying, and the misfortune part is they’re doing nothing to receive this treatment. Please set your pride aside, and get perspective. Life is valuable. We’re capable of doing far more together than divided. Both locations require change, now who’s willing to acknowledge it, and to implement action. I will start by praying for the U.S., and the UA. Who is willing to fast?
