In a statement released on Monday Ramaphosa called on law enforcement agencies and citizens to work together to help identify the perpetrators.

“There can be no justification for criminality and if communities are disaffected for any reason, grievances must be raised with government and must be done within the confines of the law,” Ramaphosa said.

Meanwhile Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Lindiwe Sisulu on Monday assured representatives of African countries that their nationals are not being targeted.
