Attacking Foreigners Will Not Solve South Africa’s Problems — Durban Mayor

Durban Mayor, James Nxumalo, on Thursday condemned the attack on the foreigners, saying attacking foreigners was not going to solve the country’s problems.
He spoke in Cape Town at rally against xenophobia organised by the International Peace Youth Group, an NGO.
“Local people involved in xenophobia attacks blame foreigners for taking up local employment, doing illegal business and even committing crimes.

“These foreigners are our brothers and sisters. We have the same blood. Blood is thicker than water. Go out into your communities and
urge people to stop these attacks,” he said.
The group said the rally was organised to show solidarity with foreigners under attack in the latest spate of violence that swept
several townships around Durban, KwaZulu-Natal Province.
Many South Africans came from other provinces to join the march at the Durban City Hall.
Durban has been a hotspot of xenophobia violence that erupted on March 25.
Five people were killed and dozens of others injured in the violence. Hundreds of foreign-owned shops and homes have been looted and
thousands of foreigners displaced.
The violence spread to Johannesburg on Wednesday where locals and foreigners clashed, leaving several people injured.
Foreigners under attack are mostly from Nigeria, Somalia, Malawi, Ethiopia and Zimbabwe. (Xinhua/NAN)
