iAfrikan, an independent technology website, has created platforms that allow the South African public report xenophobic attacks via SMS, Twitter, e-mail or through its website.

“We believe the reports submitted will assist others in avoiding potentially dangerous areas and also help to make law enforcement more efficient,” Peter Peele, Co-Founder, iAfrikan said in a report on TechMoran.

As at the time of writing this article, there are about 88 reports on the iAfrikan xenophobia report web module.

The website features a map that displayed red dots signifying generated Xenophobic reports which can be unbundled to display specific color-coded categories of reports including police activity and evacuation.


“All these events (xenophobic attacks) are criminal activities by individuals who are predisposed to attacking people based on their nationality;” Tefo Mohapi, Co-Founder, iAfrikan.
