SAHRC Urges Govt to Act on Xenophobia

The SAHRC calls on the government to act on the ‘sporadic attacks’ on immigrants and the looting of their businesses across the country

The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) has called on the government to act on the ‘sporadic attacks’ on immigrants and the looting of their businesses across the country.

The SAHRC says it has visited some of the communities affected by the attacks which have all the hallmarks of xenophobia, since only foreigners and their property seem to be targeted.

"The targeted approach of these attacks on foreign shop owners irresistibly bears xenophobic undertones and not only as criminality as it has been suggested in a number of statements by some government spokespersons.," it states
