S. African president denounces latest public violence

Udom Ekpoudom state police

Violence linked to xenophobic attitudes has sparked global discourse on immigration.

Zambia's bishops said they were "deeply saddened" by the attacks.

Nigerian entrepreneur Basil Onibo, one of the victims of the latest spate of xenophobic attacks in South Africa, looks at the burned cars at his dealership in Johannesburg Sept. 5, 2019. For this particular issue, no life was lost but properties were damaged.

Lulu Xingwana disclosed that she is not in any way perturbed about the decision of some people to not travel to South Africa for economic or tourism purposes insisting that the effect will be felt across the continent not only in her country of origin.

Nigeria's ruling party urged the government to nationalise South African companies operating in the country in retaliation for xenophobic attacks on its nationals, Bloomberg reported.

"We have managed to block the people who wanted to go and attack the foreigners", police spokesman Kay Makhubela said by phone. Nigerian artists Tiwa Savage and Burna Boy have publicly condemned the attacks, as well as the South African government.

Instead, the country is more than ready to continue working with South Africa "as brothers".

"We have more than enough for that aircraft".

House panel to take formal steps on Trump impeachment probe next week
The House Judiciary Committee is preparing to vote to formally define an impeachment inquiry into President Trump. Pence's two-night stay at the Doonbeg resort, which was 180 miles away from scheduled meetings in Dublin.

The Nigerian demonstrations forced South Africa's consular offices in Lagos to close.

"The implications in South Africa over the last few weeks are really profound", Shuter said. Pretoria closed its missions in the oil-rich African giant after it said it received threats. We've been watching as our fellow brothers and sisters destroyed our properties and injured us since last week.

"We will encourage them to enrol in small scale entrepreneurial programme with the Bank of Industry with the social investment programme, so there are things that they can do", she said. "We don't need a trans-border row with Africa or with anyone", he said.

The riots took place only a day after South African truck drivers launched a nationwide strike against the employment of foreign truck drivers. "The police must act harshly against these crimes, whether committed by South Africans or foreign nationals", ANC spokesperson Pule Mabe said. But the meeting had had to be cancelled as most ministers would be attending the WEF Africa.

Critics, however, have said the government has failed to address the serious problem of xenophobia in the country.

"The Minister assured us that the South African police service had deployed necessary resources to deal with the situation that they are facing on the ground".

"Just because a foreigner opens a shop doesn't mean he is a criminal".
