Minister of Small Business Lindiwe Zulu says the loss of lives and destruction of property in our communities need to be condemned in the strongest possible terms.

This as violence over the last few weeks across the country has erupted and national foreigners targeted in areas such as Marikana informal settlement, Lenasia and in Limpopo.

Ministerial Spokesperson Cornelius Monama said she stated that all well-meaning South Africans must condemn this violence and looting in the strongest terms.

Minister Zulu has appealed to members of our communities to cooperate with the police and not take the law into their own hands.

She’s confident that our law enforcement agencies are up to the task

Meanwhile Minister Zulu has also established a Task Team to probe at the underlying causes of the problem of these violence and looting of shops.

In a statement Minister Zulu said as government we proceed from the premise that all people living in South Africa, including foreigners, are entitled to the full protection of our law.

Ministerial Spokesperson Cornelius Monama said the task team is making a lot of progress and she will be making an announcement of what it has done.

Monama said we believe that part of the solution lies in our ability to speedily implement the national informal business upliftment strategy which addresses the challenges that face the informal sector.

“The heart of our intervention is to ensure we build a harmonious relationship between locals and foreign traders” Monama added.
