Attacking Immigrants Not Patriotic

Former president of South Africa Thabo Mbeki has said that those who organise and participate in attacks on immigrants must know there is absolutely nothing revolutionary, progressive or patriotic in these criminal activities.

"Those who organise and participate in these attacks, which must stop, must know there is absolutely nothing revolutionary, progressive or patriotic, acceptable or of service to the people in what are in fact criminal activities," said Mbeki.

Rights Lawyer Slam Xenophobia

Human rights advocate, George Bizos, says it is unbelievable that a country like South Africa, which had fought against inequality and hatred, could show such cruelty.

Bizos was quoted as saying that, "The xenophobic attacks... have shocked many South Africans, me included," during his keynote address on a discussion on ethics at the University of South Africa.

Bizos adds that many African countries had supported the struggle and good relationships had been maintained with those countries as South Africa entered democracy.
