We offer our sincere condolences to those affected both directly and indirectly by the violent attacks, and echo the words of South Africa?s President Jacob Zuma, who said: ?Millions of South Africans condemn these atrocious killings and abhor xenophobia and all related intolerances. Together we must work harder to root out violence and hatred in our society.”

The strength and resilience of our organization is rooted not only in our values and our commitment to treat all people with dignity and respect, but also in our diversity, as we draw from the skills and talents of the people in each of those countries.

South Africa, too, has embraced diversity since its birth as a nation. On the 27th of this month, South Africa?s democracy comes of age, 21 years after ushering in legitimate statehood. Then and now, we join our brothers and sisters across the continent and beyond, by recommitting to South Africa?s vision as a tolerant and multi-cultural society.
