South African High Commissioner in New Zealand Vuyiswa Tulelo has expressed shock and sadness after a large number of people were killed in a mass shooting at two mosques in Christchurch on Friday. At least one gunman opened fire on worshippers.
Tulela says they have reached out to the foreign ministry in New Zealand but no South Africans have been confirmed killed.
They are busy with the process of identifying people, and they have assured us that they will reach out to us as soon as they find something out.— Vuyiswa Tulelo, South African High Commissioner - New Zealand
It is heart-breaking that the people who were affected were majority African people because the focus of the attack was at a mosque.— Vuyiswa Tulelo, South African High Commissioner - New Zealand
