“We note with great concern and anguish the suffering of our citizens. Express our solidarity with the victims and their families. We are determined to make efforts to mitigate their suffering, rendering all necessary assistance,” said Nyusi, who was speaking during a ceremony at which three assistant attorneys- general were sworn into office.
About 300 Mozambicans have fled their homes in the Kwazulu Natal province, taking refuge in two accommodation centers created to house victims of xenophobia, which erupted about two weeks ago in South Africa.
The Durban violence has claimed at least five lives, and two of these victims are Mozambicans.
This new wave of violence began just days after the Zulu nation king, Goodwill Zwelithini, the highest traditional authority of Kwazulu Natal has urged foreigners “to pack their bags and leave” the country. Enditem
