With many finding it increasingly difficult to survive in the current economic climate in the country, African nationals have become easy targets and South Africa has seen an increase in violent Xenophobic attacks. These xenophobic sentiments are reflected in the Johannesburg Mayor Herman’s Mashaba’s xenophobia statements about ‘foreigners’ in the city, and the increasing number of sensational headlines in newspaper  and on social media. Many African national immigrants and refugees are also made to suffer inhumane conditions because of their vulnerable position in society. Karibu! began as an anti-xenophobia publication in response to the xenophobia violence of 2008. To raise awareness against this upsurge of xenophobia, this edition marks the re-introduction of a section of news and analysis coverage in the Karibu!: Africa News and Analysis.
