The ANC Western Cape in conjunction with the National Executive Committee has extended an invitation to victims of xenophobic attacks to return home and asked communities to embrace them.
This follows after a delegation led by Lynne Brown, Lumka Yengeni, Nomaindo Mfeketo, Nosipho Ntwanambi and Mcebisi Swatsha visited areas where groups of refugees have taken shelter.
“We have started the process of reintegrating foreigners forced to flee their homes back into communities. All ANC structures and branches are united to achieve this end, “ANC Western Cape Secretary Mcebisi Skawtasha.
Swathsha had sent the refugees apologies on behalf of the African National Congress and said that the perpetrators behind the attacks were criminals and do not represent the views of most South Africans.
