Xenophobic: Indicted Zulu King Appeals For Peace In Touched AreasAfrican News, Latest News Monday, April 20th, 2015
As Xenophobic attacks rage in South Africa, the indicted Zulu King, Goodwill Zwelithini has called for calm in the affected areas.
The King was accused last week of provoking the bloody protest, in which no fewer than seven people (foreigners) have been killed, after directing that the foreigners should return to their countries.
While addressing huge crowd Monday, inside a stadium in the eastern city of Durban, King Zwelithini’s said his comments on the attack saga were distorted by the media.
He stated it was unfair to blame the bloody violence on one individual, adding that there had been outbreaks of xenophobic violence in South Africa, many years back.
Apparently to prove his innocence, King Zwelithini’s requested South African Human Rights Commission to commence investigation on the hate speech charges against him without hindrance.
Not less than 300 suspects have been arrested in connection to over one week escalation.
