South African president Matamela Cyril Ramaphosa has opened up on the recent wave of xenophobic attacks that have happened mainly in KwaZulu Natal and Mpumalanga Provinces.

In a speech on Friday Ramaphosa condemned the attacks against foreigners and said it is not the culture of South Africans to fight their African brothers and sisters.

He further said South Africans spent a long time in neighbouring countries where they were kept safe and offered bases to train for the war of liberation.

He said there are many foreigners who are in the country legally who respect and observe the South African laws.

Ramaphosa recently came under fire when he sent warning shots to foreigners who are habiting in the country without permits and operating businesses without licenses that he is coming after them.

Three people have been reported dead while hundreds displaced in the recent attacks by xenophobes.
