South African President issues warning to anti-foreigner vigilante groups

South African president, Cyril Ramaphosa has warned against certain groups around the country that are targeting foreign nationals.

On Monday, during his speech commemorating the South African holiday, the Human Right’s day, he also warned for companies to refrain from employing undocumented foreigners nationals.

The president said, ”We say to employers: do not employ undocumented workers because when you do you are just going to create tension among the people.”

He also said, organisations such as Operation Dudula are breaking the law. Operation Dudula is an organisation that targets foreign nationals in Alexandra, accusing them of taking jobs from locals.

Some of its actions are not legal. They have marked that area as a place of business for South Africans, forcibly removing foreign nationals.
