The United Democratic Movement said a serious discussion is needed in Parliament on the xenophobic attacks in KwaZulu Natal.

UDM Chief Whip Nqabayomzi Kwankwa has written to the Speaker of Parliament Baleka Mbete stating that the violent crimes that have been committed against foreign nationals in the country, if not nipped in the bud is likely to escalate into a vicious fight or a full blown genocide.

Meanwhile over a thousand people are expected to march through the streets of Durban today against xenophobia. 

Kwankwa said we feel as politicians and as parliament, we should lead a debate on this very important matter in order to influence the public opinions.
Kwankwa said we cannot sit back when South Africans and humans beings are killing one another just for the simple reason that others do not belong here or are not citizens of this country.

“It is wrong and we have to make our voices heard as political leaders and as South Africans”, Kwankwa added.
