Statement on Xenophophic Attacks

Statement on Xenophophic Attacks

The management, staff and students of the Durban University of Technology adds to the many strong voices condemning the xenophobic attacks on our foreign brothers and sisters.

DUT has an attitude of welcoming, accepting and supporting all international staff, students and visitors. South Africans are known for Ubuntu and their friendly hospitality. Xenophobia goes against these values and the spirit of the South African Constitution.

As collective South Africans, we must talk about xenophobia and do something about it. When we watch in silence, we too participate in this despicable and disrespectful action against other human beings.

The KwaZulu-Natal government has called for peace. The Honourable Premier of KwaZulu-Natal, Mr Senzo Mchunu, and His Worship, Mayor of eThekwini Cllr James Nxumalo, have invited all citizens (of KwaZulu-Natal) to join the Peace March against violence directed at foreign nationals. The march will take place tomorrow, 16 April 2015, at 10h00 from Curries Fountain Stadium.
