'Let us fight xenophobia'

KwaZulu-Natal MEC for local government Mike Mabuyakhulu has called on mayors in the province to lead the fight against the scourge of xenophobia.

He said the assaults on and killing of foreigners of African descent had sullied the name of the country.

Mabuyakhulu was speaking before the Knowledge Sharing Conference on Friday, which was attended by mayors and municipal officials. - Canaan Mdletshe
