MPs Appeal To SA Govt To Act On Xenophobia

Members of Parliament have expressed concern over growing xenophobia in South Africa which resulted in the brutal murder of a Zimbabwean, Elvis Nyathi in Diepsloot last week.

The issue was raised as a matter of concern by ZANU PF chief whip in the National Assembly Pupurai Togarepi on Tuesday. He said:

We feel deeply pained over how our fellow Zimbabwean national was killed in South Africa by the so-called operations; we are pained.

It is our hope that the people of South Africa, especially those criminals who are perpetuating this activity will stop it and allow co-existence.

We are confident that the South African government has the capacity to deal with these criminals and also hope that xenophobia and further killings will be stopped.

An anti-immigrant citizens’ movement, Operation Dudula, led by Nhlanhla “Lux” Dlamini, has been targeting foreign nationals in different parts of South Africa, harassing and extorting them.

Groups such as Operation Dudula are accused of fuelling recent xenophobic attacks such as the killing of Nyathi by vigilantes in Diepsloot, a slum area north of Johannesburg on Wednesday last week.

Nyathi was dragged from his shack, assaulted and burned by a mob that accused him of being a foreign criminal.

  1. You are pained. That is a joke. How many lives are beiing lost daily because of lack of medication in hospitals and you have no shame to say “I am pained” …..Nxaaaaa Kwanai baba imi

    1. Zanupf criminals are the last people on earth to comment on violence they are ones who displaced millions thru gukuraund policies actually SADC needs to take a tough stand against Zanupf lockup the border gate

  2. IF you expect the SA GOVT to use violence like firing a gun at 45 degrees NO they dont do that!! So Dudula will be negotiated through citizen consultation> That is the lesson you must learn from Dudula> Yes Dudula is wrong but using violence to stop Dudula as you wish by calling them ‘criminalas’ \. Not so fast!!
