Mashamaite has called on his countrymen to show more compassion to their neighbours.
He told Football411: "It's very barbaric in a sense that its 2015 and we're still living in an era of being scared of each other.
"You're suppose to love your neighbour regardless of where they come from. We need the spirit of globalisation.
"It's about time we go beyond our ignorance. We should be all accountable to fight for it."
