The South African Municipal Workers’ Union (SAMWU) joins the peace loving South Africans in condemning the inhumane attacks on foreign nationals. The attacks which started in KZN have now spread to other provinces.

The South African Municipal Workers’ Union (SAMWU) condemns the brutal killing of SATAWU Gauteng Provincial Secretary Cde Chris Nkosi. We also condemn the cowardly attack of SATAWU President Cde John Dube at his home a few hours after the murder of Cde Nkosi. SAMWU sends its heartfelt condolences to the family of Cde Nkosi, his friends and SATAWU. In the wake of these incidents, SATAWU should take the necessary steps to reinforce the safety of their leaders. We urge law enforcement agencies to do all in their power to bring these criminals to face justice. We further urge community members with information to approach the police.
