Natal Provincial Commissioner, Lieutenant General Mmamonnye Ngobeni condemned the attack directed towards the national foreigners around Isipingo area. We want to once again discourage people from taking the law into their own hands and warn those found to be breaking the law will be prosecuted. Community needs to resolve their dissatisfaction through right channels and peacefully rather than to embark on illegal and violent protests.

“We urge members of the community to bring peace in their areas and not to fight among themselves. We will not tolerate such attacks and damaging of property belonging to foreigners and this must stop. Our police officers in blue will continue to monitor the situation in the province and will investigate those cases already opened. Cases of public violence were also opened after the community members barricaded the roads around Isipingo and Umlazi area,” she said.
