The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Madam Hannah Tetteh has stated that four officials from the National Security have arrived in South Africa to ascertain the state of security as far as Ghanaian immigrants living in Durban are concerned.

According to her, "We've sent some national security officials to monitor the situation and report to government."

Her comment follows the outbreak of xenophobic attacks that have left ten people dead with several to have sustained various degrees of injuries.

“As of yesterday, I can confirm that four national security officials have left Accra and are currently in South Africa to ascertain the state of security as far as our nationals are concerned.”

She also debunked reports that, the four Ghanaians who died in the salon in Hebroin, Free State, South Africa died from the xenophobic attacks.

Meanwhile, reports that five Ghanaians have been killed in the attacks have been refuted by the South African High Commissioner to Ghana Lulama Xingwana.

She said a Ghanaian man, who was found dead on the streets of Durban, the centre of the attacks on black Africans from other countries by their fellow black South Africans, died of an epileptic attack, according to an autopsy report.

Xingwana also said four other Ghanaians, a man, two women and a baby who were found dead in a salon at Heibron, did not die from xenophobic attacks.
