SA not xenophobic, Zuma tells media

The world is being fed the incorrect perception that all South Africans are xenophobic, President Jacob Zuma said.

Speaking to journalists outside the Rietgat police station following a crime intervention visit to Soshanguve near Pretoria‚ Zuma said he did not feel that the current violence‚ looting and clashes between police and protesters in Jeppestown was as a result of xenophobia.

“Yes it is a concern, but crime depends on the circumstances‚” he said.
