The Consumer Goods Council has
called for an immediate end to the attacks and violence on foreign-nationals
and a united front on the part of all those who uphold democratic values,
social justice and the rule of law.
The Good Council said hurting
innocent people will not improve the quality of life of any South African.
Seven people have died in xenophobic
attacks in KwaZulu Natal and Gauteng.
Consumer Goods Council’s Gwarega
Mangozhe said they are calling for the halt of these particular tax because certainly
South Africa has always managed to resolve issues via dialogue.
Mangozhe said if there are
challenges they are concerned, there are platforms available that people can
air their grievances and then we find an amicable way in which these challenges
can be resolved.
“And then of course we are naturally
concerned that the longer these issues progress, we might start to see some
repercussions on a member operations on the African continent” Mangozhe added.
