- Herman Mashaba feels that South Africa is owed an apology from the world before any apologies are issued
- Envoys are currently scouring Africa seeking to repair damaged relations after xenophobic attacks
- The Joburg Mayor, on the other hand, feels that those who support 'illegality' in the country are the real perpetrators
Herman Mashaba has reinforced his sentiments that those responsible for the crime in South Africa should be dishing out apologies.
Speaking to eNCA, the Johannesburg Mayor insists that, while politicians have the right to do whatever pleases them, South Africa has nothing to apologise for.
Mashaba personally disagrees, saying that the nation is suffering from criminal elements brought into the country by foreign nationals.
The Democratic Alliance politician denies that African immigrants are solely to blame for the situation, adamant that foreigners from countries like India and Afganistan are also wreaking havoc on the streets of Mzansi.
Meanwhile, International Relations Minister Naledi Pandor, who has replaced Ramaphosa for a United Nations meeting, is expected to offer an apology to the world over the xenophobic displays in the country.
