Zim Embassy in Pretoria condems Phophi Ramathuba’s xenophobic attacks

The Zimbabwean embassy in Pretoria has raised concerns over Limpopo Health Member of Executive Committee (MEC), Phophi Ramathuba’s xenophobic attacks against a Zimbabwean national.

Ramathuba sparked controversy last week after a video of her attacking a Zimbabwean patient at a Limpopo hospital circulated on social media.

In a statement, the embassy in SA said engagements with South African authorities were in progress.

“The embassy has been in contact with the Government of South Africa through the Department of International Relations and Cooperation to who it has conveyed the concerns of the Government of Zimbabwe on the concerns made by the MEC,” read the statement.
