Soweto - Xenophobic attacks were a national shame and should not be repeated again.
This was a passionate plea by President Cyril Ramaphosa following his return to the country after the burial of former Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe in Harare on Saturday.
Ramaphosa was a guest of honour at the Grace Bible Church in Pimville, Soweto, this morning when he pleaded with the congregants and Pastor Mosa Sono to help his government fight the scourge of xenophobia which hit parts of Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal.
While on a charm offensive - Ramaphosa drew the attention of the hurt these attacks had on the people on the people of Zimbabwe - who booed him while he was addressing the funeral of former Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe in Harare yesterday.
“This is the second time I was booed. The first time is when I introduced the national minimum wage for workers. I was booed by a certain group of people and those were the community health workers. They booed me because I did not mention them in the wage allocation.
