Mayor of Johannesburg, Herman Mashaba has revealed that he feels that apologizing to Nigeria over the xenophobic attacks was unnecessary. Speaking on CNBC Africa’s Political Capital on Tuesday September 17, the South African Mayor said he doesn’t see the xenophobic attack as an “incident” as it was bound to happen.

“No, there is nothing for me to apologise about. What do you expect me to really apologise for,” Mashaba said while reacting to the letter of apology from President Cyril Ramaphosa to the Nigerian government
“We are not going to turn a blind eye on such evil crime happening under our watch. The country [South Africa] also owes an official apology to the 10.2 million unemployed South Africans who are today without jobs as a result of billions of counterfeit goods being brought illegally into the country, killing local manufacturing,” Mashaba said.
