Eyewitness News reporter Nthakoana Ngatane has more on the story.

International Relations Minister Naledi Pandor says African leaders must take collective accountability for the violence on fellow Africans in South Africa.

Pandor has met with diaspora civil society organisations in Pretoria to find solutions to the issue of xenophobia.

Eyewitness News (EWN) reporter Nthakoana Ngatane has more on the story.

She says African leaders must now come together and unite and call for others to not degrade their countries - which is why we are seeing people leave and go to other countries.

Nthakoana Ngatane, Reporter - EWN

She said that as far as consciousness is concerned the violence shows that Africans are not aware that their destiny is united and that no one African country can survive on its own.

Nthakoana Ngatane, Reporter - EWN

She says part of what she will do as the minister of international relations is actually go to those communities to understand what the problems are.

Nthakoana Ngatane, Reporter - EWN

She says the problems emanate from socio-economic problems - lack of jobs in South Africa, foreign nationals who come to South Africa because they don't have jobs in their own countries.
