On Wednesday morning, 20 people sought shelter from a mosque in Crescent Street in Overport, Durban, after they were attacked at Jadhu Place informal settlement in Springfield Park.

Several messages are doing the rounds, warning of protests against the employment of foreign nationals in South Africa.

"We also had a case of seven foreign trucks that were burnt to ashes near Mooi River Toll Plaza in Durban". Meaning, let's have a sober immigration policy informed by the interests of South Africans.

"There is no straight line".


He emphasized that this is not in any way to underplay or undermine the indignation and outrage for any xenophobic attacks. "I condemn them in the strongest terms because this is not us", he said to applause.

The South African government acknowledged the significant contribution and sacrifices made by the African continent for South Africans to be free and liberated from the shackles of apartheid.

Sisulu added that South African companies and South Africans were involved in different businesses across the continent without hindrance.

"Here at home we should do the same, we must embrace our neighbours and fellow South Africans" said Sisulu. "We will not allow criminals to set back these processes", said Ramaphosa. The meeting, which will happen as soon as possible, will focus on how ambassadors and government can work with communities and all stakeholders to support and encourage integration in communities.

She said the attacks should not be happening, especially at a time when regional and continental bodies such as the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and the African Union (AU) are looking at South Africa to provide it leadership to issues confronting the continent.

"We are going to bring this to an end and those who are operating illegally, wherever they come from must now know", Ramaphosa told supporters.
