Deputy President Cyril
Ramaphosa said the matter regarding the five South Africans detained in china
is being dealt with rapidly.
Ramaphosa is currently on an
official visit to People’s Republic of China.
Ten South Africans who were
part of a tour group were arrested last week after they were accused of being
linked to a terror group and watching propaganda films in their hotel.
Five of them have been
released and will be back in the country on Friday.
The other five remain in a
detention centre in China.
Ramaphosa said “we are hoping
that there would be a solution as time goes on, so that matter is being handled
and we think it’s best to leave it at that level because the Chinese officials as
well as our Department of International Relations are dealing with the matter
actively on hour by hour basis, it is being addressed”
