The Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) has noted the xenophobic attacks that are currently being carried out on foreign nationals, particularly those from the rest of Africa.

We join others in condemning these barbaric attacks. While we welcome the arrest of the perpetrators, more needs to be done to protect not only the lives but the properties of the foreign nationals in South Africa.

As Africans we should be striving to improve collaboration and cooperation between our countries and nationals after a prolonged, divisive and extractive system of colonialism and underdevelopment. More needs to be done to ensure cohesion and solidarity.

Just as much

as we worked together to defeat apartheid, we should work together to fight against ills like xenophobia, poverty, under development and exploitation without resorting to violence.

Our prayers are with the victims of these attacks and plead with all actors within and without South Africa to provide leadership at this challenging hour. We should avoid responses that could serve to further inflame the situation and divide us further.
