“Such attacks can never be condoned,” the Amakhosi legend reacts. “If people disagree with each other, they should talk, as we say at Chiefs, in Love & Peace.”
“There are certain ways to deal with issues and the way this situation is being handled at present is simply wrong. I appeal to all – we should not allow this to happen in South Africa.”
Amakhosi have always been vocal against xenophobia and have been in active in promoting unity in diversity.
“It doesn’t matter if you are born in South Africa or not,” continues Khumalo. “What matter is that we live together in the same country. Whatever the background, we are all brothers and sisters! We are all Africans.”
