Statement by President Jacob Zuma to the National Assembly on the violence in Kwazulu-Natal directed at foreign nationals Print E-mail
Friday, 17 April 2015

 Honourable Speaker,
Honourable Deputy Speaker,
Honourable Deputy President,
Honourable Members,
Fellow South Africans,

During the past week we have witnessed shocking and unacceptable incidents of violence directed at foreign nationals in some parts of KwaZulu-Natal, which has now spread to some parts of Gauteng. Similar incidents had taken place in Soweto in January.

No amount of frustration or anger can ever justify the attacks on foreign nationals and the looting of their shops.

We condemn the violence in the strongest possible terms. The attacks violate all the values that South Africa embodies, especially the respect for human life, human rights, human dignity and Ubuntu.
