Minister of Home Affairs Malusi Gigaba has expressed concern over the outbreak of violence against foreign nationals.

This follows the wave of attacks and looting of shops of foreign owned shops in Durban.

Minister Gigaba addressing the members of the Diplomatic Corps during a dinner held last night in Pretoria said government is doing everything it can to get to the bottom of this problem.

Minister Gigaba said the international community must not view South Africa has as a xenophobic and afro phobic country. Africa in particular must not think that we hate fellow Africans so much that we are prepared to do the worst to cause them harm.

Gigaba said South Africa belongs to Africa and when all is said and done, we are an African county. People must refrain from taking the law into their own hands and where there are challenges they must refer those to authorities. And let the authorities deal with those challenges in terms of the powers, mandate and authority which they have.
