Jul 21 - Nigeria's ferry policy openly states, 'NO WHITE PEOPLE ALLOWED'
 

 
Lagos - During a visit to Nigeria, on former president Nelson Mandela's birthday on Saturday, parliamentarians from South Africa and other African countries refused to board a ferry, due to the company's policy that states white people were not allowed on board.

"Our 67 minutes became 3 hours of protesting a heinously racist policy," said Mtholephi Mthimkhulu, deputy speaker of the KwaZulu-Natal legislature, on Sunday.

"Emotions became quite heated at one stage. We said we can’t support a racist policy on Mandela's birthday," he said.

Members of the Commonwealth Alliance for Parliamentarians are currently on a two-week long study visit to Nigeria.

Ferry company policy

Saturday's incident took place when they wanted to board a ferry in the Niger Delta for a sight-seeing tour to an island.

According to Mthimkhulu, it was the ferry company's policy not to allow white people on their boats "for security reasons".

This would mean that four members of the group - Jo Ann Downs (KwaZulu-Natal ACDP MPL), Athol Trollip (DA MP) and Glenda Steyn (DA MPL from Gauteng), and also a coloured parliamentarian from Namibia, who was taken to be a white person - would not be able to go on board.

The South African delegates immediately said they would not go on the trip if their white colleagues were not allowed onto the boat, said Mthimkhulu.

Parliamentarians from Swaziland, Lesotho, Namibia, Gabon and Tanzania also protested, and eventually none of the parliamentarians went on the sight-seeing trip.

Company could be closed down

The governor of the River State later apologised to the group and said the authorities were not aware of the company's policy. According to Mthimkhulu, he gave his word that the company would be closed on Monday if it didn't change its policy.

In another incident, a security guard grabbed Downs's camera after she and Susan Mnumzana, former Free State MEC for agriculture, had taken photos. Mthimkhulu said Downs's camera was returned to her, after the rest of the group explained they were not aware that taking photographs was forbidden.

Mthimkhulu denied a report that the visit to Nigeria was "hell".

When the South Africans arrived, there was a delay at the airport because arrival forms had not been given to passengers while they were still on the plane.

Otherwise, the group were treated like VIPs, Mthimkhulu said.

Downs could not be reached for comment.

To me it seems like the reason is deeper than just skin color. They are totally right to have the policy, white people have been trying to destroy Africa for hundreds of years (and been quite successful at it)

have i? i mustve just been doing it subconsciously then.

wheras you (who im a.ssuming are black or not white) have done everything to help poor african nations, u always buy fair trade etc.?

if u think the aim of european colonial powers 100s of years ago was to destroy africa then i think u should f*** off and let the adults talk.

and i dont think they/we ( such an idiotic statement u made there d***head) have been "successful" at it, africa is a continent full of potential, and is being damaged far more by bad leadership than "the white mans" involvement.

who gives the most in donations to africans? is it africans themselves, asians, or europeans and people from the us?

if u try and combat racism from the past with further racism, what do u think that achieves?

(answer= more racism)

"the white man" and who is he exactly?

it looks 2 me like the black mans pissed because he didnt think of racism first :rolleyes:

and id go to nigeria, its got a massively growing economy, possibly in the future becoming one of the worlds top economies.

theyre trying 2 make their democracy freer from corruption, the main problem for nigeria (imo) is the conflict over the oil, and resulting poverty (due to poisoned fishing areas etc). in the niger delta.

they need 2 train more nigerian oil workers and stop bringing in foreign workers, who also risk kidnapping by somali and niger pirates.

its great that black americans always think they know everything about africa tho,

keep it up and youll be up to speed with white americans and their over praiseworthy,unrealistically nostalgic,bizarrely patriotic and overall ignorant opinions of european countries.

but some of these posters are right tho, the way to combat the ills of post-colonial africa is by stopping white people getting on ferries :rolleyes:

so if thats the basis of your argument, one could also state that some places in the United States should be allowed to have a no blacks allowed policy because they have been destroying parts of the Uniteed States for years. Dont see how f!ghting racism with racism would work but hey... ur just an insecure angry blackman looking for something to blame ur misfortunes on

Thats idea is invalid, because africans/blacks have contributed more to the US in terms of years, than destroying. W/e these race topics gets played, angry white man vs angry black man, who both sound stupid as f***, simply because they're offended by each others comments about their race.

poor analogy.

a better one would be that european colonialism,in africa and asia was justified because armies from africa and asia had in the past invaded and plundered across europe,taking slaves, bringing diseases (like the bubonic plague which k!lled around 70million)

in turn some of those invasions, colonisations etc. were justified because armies from europe had invaded parts of asia and parts of africa before that,

in turn those invasions (like rome in n.africa and near east) were justified because armies from n.africa and the near east had invaded and plundered europe before that etc.

so its an endless cycle really.

basically war happens, lots of people seem 2 think slavery, warfare, conquest, ideas of racism/xenophobia have only existed in the past 400 years, and have only been practiced by nations with majority white populations, hence the ignorance and hatred.
