Last week xenophobia reared its ugly head and garnered disapproval from fellow African nations.

Briefly.co.za reported that Julius Malema had condemned the recent violence targeting foreign nationals, warning that the 'madness' against other Africans was pure criminality.

Trevor Noah took to social media to agree with the Red Beret leader's call for peace in Africa, saying that:

"I don’t always agree with Julius Malema, but this statement on Xenophobic attacks in SA is perfect."
