Pretoria - International Relations and Cooperation Minister Lindiwe Sisulu has called for an urgent meeting with African ambassadors in Pretoria to discuss the current spate of violence targeting foreign nationals and their properties.
"The minister has expressed serious concern about the situation, and called on law-enforcement officers to deal with criminals and those damaging properties with the full might of the law," international relations department spokesperson Ndivhuwo Mabaya said on Saturday.
The South African government acknowledged the significant contribution and sacrifices made by the African continent for South Africans to be free and be liberated from the apartheid government.
Sisulu added that South African companies and South Africans were involved in different businesses across the continent without hindrance.
"South African companies and our citizens are welcomed and loved across the continent. Here at home we should do the same, we must embrace our neighbours and fellow South Africans” said Sisulu.
