Being a visitor in a foreign country is like being a guest in someone’s house.

If you are a good guest, you’ll be treated well.

But if you cause discomfort, you’ll have to leave.

However, this doesn’t mean there has to be violence involved.

I can easily relate this to the xenophobic attacks sweeping across Mzansi. We cannot be single-sided on this matter and blame only one party when both are at fault.

The least we could do is to tell our guests how we feel without shedding blood.
