Pandor promises to shut down leaders who 'exacerbate' xenophobic violence
Following days of unrest and xenophobic attacks across parts of Gauteng, International Relations Minister Naledi Pandor has met with international ambassadors to brief them on the latest.
On Monday police confirmed that 12 people have died as a result of the recent violence.
EWN's Nthakoana Ngatane says Pandor addressed the concerns that the violence is fuelled by comments made by leaders.
The minister said that the ambassadors have expressed concern about what the leaders themselves have been saying.Nthakoana Ngatane, Reporter - EWN
