“Istatement sakhe asikhulumayo ma singaqhubeka kanjalo singaqala amaxenophobic attacks okuzokwenza ukuthi abantu ababuya ngaphandle bangabi lokuhlaliseka la eMzansi Africa. Uma umuntu engu leader isikhathi esinengi elabalandeli, into ayikhulumayo abalandeli bakhe bayidigester ngenye indlela. So sekungasuka kube lama violent attacks ngento le eyikhulumileyo.”

Omunye njalo oweZimbabwe, uMnuu. Mandla Masuku oweMigrant Workers’ Union of South Africa, uthi lamazwi agcwalisa umbono wabanengi wokuthi iDA libandla elilwela ukuthi umuntu omnyaka ahlale encindezelwe ngamakhiwa.

UMnu. Nqabutho Mabhena, ongumgcinisihlalo wenhlanganiso ye Zimbabwe Community in South Africa, uthi baphe uMashaba inyanganje kuphela ukuthi ethule ukuzisola kwakhe ngala amazwi.

“UMashaba kumele axolise ngenkulumo embi eyikhulumileyo. Okwesibili uMashaba kumele alwe labantu abagangileyo kodwa lokho akutsho ukuthi ubugebenga benziwa ngabantu bangaphandle kodwa benziwa nguye wonke umuntu.”

Inhlanganiso zakweleSouth Africa ezikazulu lezilwela amalungelo oluntu lazo bezikhona zisekela abakwamanye amazwe laba.

UMnu. Trevor Ngwane, olilunga le United Front uthi umhlangano abafuna ukuwuqhuba loMashaba ngowokufundisa izinto angazaziyo ngabakwamanye amazwe abahlala eJohannesburg.

“Cha thina singabe United Front asihambisani lokuthi abantu bangaphandle baphathwe kabi ngoba sibona engathi ngabafowethu labo dadewethu. Futhi umzabalazo wethu uwodwa, sincindezelwe yi colonialism le-capitalism so kufanele sibambaneni silwele into eyodwa yokuthi wonke umuntu aphile kangcono,” kusho uNgwane.
