Zulu King to hold imbizo against attacks on foreign nationals
Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini will this morning hold an imbizo against the attacks on foreign nationals.
Hundreds including amakhosi, izinduna and amabutho will convene at Durban's Moses Mabhida stadium from 9am.

The imbizo, which is being organised by the royal household and provincial government, is in support to government efforts to curb the violence on foreign nationals

It also comes after last week’s Peace March which was organised by the province and civil society.

Last week, Cabinet condemned in the strongest terms the acts of violence against foreign nationals and has called on all communities to take a stand against the attacks.

“South Africa is not a violent country and therefore a few individuals cannot be allowed to hold the whole country to ransom,” said Minister in the Presidency responsible for Planning, Performance and Monitoring, Jeff Radebe.

Minister Radebe said violence towards other human beings can never solve the issues raised by communities.

“No amount of frustration or anger can justify these attacks and looting of shops. Rather, it reflects badly on us as a people, going against the very ideals and foundations of our democracy.

“South Africa fought against colonialism and apartheid alongside fellow Africans so that all humanity in our continent should be respected and treated with dignity,” Minister Radebe said.

The Minister warned that the impact of these attacks has far reaching implications on the country’s economic and social relations with the continent and the world.
