We mourn in condolence with the orphans and the widows around Durban, Johannesburg and other areas in South Africa, whose next of kin have been killed when incited mobs attacked and assaulted them, some of whose dwellings were raided, destroyed and set on fire, and they being called upon to return to the countries from which they had fled. [>> report of eye-witnesses]
The victims had earlier come from Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Congo, Somalia and other African countries and had hoped to find refuge from oppression in South Africa.
We are consternated and appalled, angry and sad.
Ben Khumalo-Seegelken, relatives and friends.
