South African President, Cyril Ramaphosa has broken silence concerning the xenophobic attacks going on in his country.
In a series of tweets, Ramaphosa condemned the attacks on foreigners and their properties which have been looted and some burnt.
He said, ”I condemn the violence that has been spreading around a number of our provinces in the strongest terms. I’m convening the ministers in the security cluster today to make sure that we keep a close eye on these acts of wanton violence and find ways of stopping them.
”The people of our country want to live in harmony; whatever concerns or grievances we may have, we need to handle them in a democratic way.
”There can be no justification for any South African to attack people from other countries,”he added.
