The White House
Office of the Press Secretary
STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT
We condemn the violence that took place in the streets of Johannesburg and elsewhere in South Africa in recent days. The United States calls on all South African parties to reject violence and intimidation and to work towards a peaceful transition to a nonracial democracy.
Those who are responsible for brutal acts of terror must not be allowed to impede South Africa's historic transformation. We urge an aggresive investigation into these violent actions so that the culprits can be brought to justice.
