Cape Town - The government has come under fire for lacking the intelligence to thwart the spate of attacks directed at foreign nationals in the country.
The DA, African Christian Democratic Party and Freedom Front Plus said on Tuesday that the country's intelligence services were in disarray and could not prevent the violent attacks on foreign nationals.
Minister of State Security Ayanda Dlodlo said plenty of work had to be conducted by intelligence agencies.
“We have three intelligence outfits and they all work together. It is not true that there is no oversight on intelligence,” said Dlodlo.
“We work as a cluster, we provide information and we don't arrest. We are on the ground and we are not overt.”
