28 Jul 17 Xenophobia

The Hate Crimes Working Group (HCWG) is a multi-sectoral network of 35 civil society organizations set up to spearhead advocacy and reform initiatives pertaining to hate crimes in South Africa and the region. Members of the network work in diverse sectors, namely in LGBTI rights; migrants, refugees and asylum seekers rights; gender based entities and broader human rights organizations.

We wish to register our grave concern regarding the public utterances by the Deputy Minister of Police, Mr Bongani Mkongi, on 14 July 2017 while visiting Hillbrow Police Station in Johannesburg.
