President Jacob Zuma has announced that a committee has been established to deal with Xenophobia in South Africa. The President met with various stakeholders to discuss the country's migration policies.
The meeting follows the recent spate of attacks on foreign nationals across the country. Zuma says the entire country across all spheres needs to come together to ensure xenophobic attacks do not occur in our country again.
"We thought it was important that we should all meet because it cannot be the job of the government only to deal with this matter. From the government’s point of view, we have put together certain departments to work on this matter. But yesterday, we established a committee that is going to take over matters from now when the violent attacks have ended but also to say ‘what's it that we do to ensure it will never happen again?"
Seven people have so far been killed in the recent xenophobic attacks in the country.READ MORE OF THIS STORY
