XENOPHOBIA: “Gauteng Violence Are Not Acts of Xenophobia, Thugs Are Taking Advantage Of the Situation” – Magashule

The Secretary-General of the African National Congress (ANC), Ace Magashule said that the crisis and tension in Gauteng are not Xenophobic but rather are acts of criminality.

He said this while addressing students at the Tshwane University of Technology’s main campus in Pretoria, South Africa.

“It is not acts of xenophobia, these are acts of criminality, they are acts of tribal battles. And you think all these things are happening because of xenophobia, that is not the case.

“Criminals are seizing the opportunity to do what they are not supposed to do. That’s why we are saying police must act very harshly against criminals”, said Magashule.

Foreign-owned shops have been looted across Gauteng and dozens of people are behind bars.

At least 7 people have now been murdered in the violence in the province.
