Zulu King, Goodwill Zwelithini, who stirred up the xenophobic attack when he said “All foreigners must leave South Africa” is urging South Africans to stop the xenophobic attacks on foreigners.
According to BBC, while he was speaking at a crowded stadium in Durban, he repudiated reports that he sparked the violence and he said
“We need to make sure no more foreigners are attacked…If it were true that I said foreigners must go, this country would be up in flames…This violence directed at our brothers and sisters is shameful. My speech … was directed at the police, calling for stricter law enforcement, but that was never reported. The public was instead given another side of my speech, which had been twisted and misrepresented”
