Who Will Be Held Responsible for Xenophobia in South Africa?

Human Rights Watch and the African Diaspora Forum have called for the urgent investigation and prosecution of those responsible for a spate of attacks against migrants, most of them from Malawi, in Durban from March 25 to April 2. Dr Vusumuzi Sibanda, Chairperson of the African Diaspora Forum, spoke to allAfrica's Andre van Wyk to share his thoughts on the effects of xenophobia and what it means for South Africa.
