Government says there is nothing more it can do to help end xenophobia in South Africa other than appealing to that country’s government to sort out the problem.

Chief government spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili says the xenophobic attacks being perpetrated in South Africa is that country’s internal security matter and therefore the onus of resolving it remains on its government.

Mr. Kambwili who is also Information and Broadcasting Services Minister has told Qfm News by telephone the only help the Zambian government has given in this case is to request SADC to intervene.

He says SADC has to this effect taken an initiative in addition to the statement that AU has made with respect the attacking of foreign nationals in South Africa.

Mr. Kambwili has also disclosed that the Zambian government since been reliably informed of the pledge that South African President Jacob Zuma has made to the rest of SADC member states of sorting out the said problem.
