Forced to stay at home, African nationals struggle to get daily provisions

In the wake of racial riots in Greater Noida, the Africans staying in Greater Noida are held hostage in their homes by the district police. They are advised not step out of their houses, not even for buying daily needs.

Trapped in their homes, the Africans are finding it difficult to make end meets.

All of them are seeking home delivery options to get grocery items at their door steps. But, some living in secluded sectors are deprived of such facilities.

Greater Noida has a population of around four thousand Africans who have mostly occupied the secluded sectors and societies.

Most of them own vehicles, but now are largely dependent on any available options after their wheels were jammed.

"Our fridge always remains filled with meat and a variety of eatables but these days we are somehow adjusting in limited stocks and food items provided to us by a nearby shop. We are not being given any meat owing to some ongoing Hindu festival, " Peter Edward told Millennium Post.

In order to ensure their safety, the police and the association of African welfare have restricted their movement in the city.

"Till the situation becomes gentle, Africans should avoid going to market places and colleges alone. They must inform the police about their movement and must go in groups. They should avoid travelling alone" said a top cop.

The students are unable to attend college while the professionals are skipping their offices. Mulonda Paswanzambi, an African student said, "As we are not allowed to go out of our home alone, I have requested my company to pick me up from my home in company's cab. I work as a supervisor in a company located in Noida sector 62. As I have finished my course from Galgotias University, I have requested the college to issue me the degree and other documents as early as possible so that I can leave for my country. My parents are under tremendous tension there".
