CAPE TOWN - Democratic Alliance (DA) leader John Steenhuisen said that the party's focus was to bring communities together to rebuild what had been destroyed during days of violence and looting.

Steenhuisen was also in Phoenix on Tuesday alongside DA KwaZulu-Natal provincial leader, Francois Rodgers, assessing several affected communities.

He has stressed that justice must be served: “There has to be consequences for the damages, the loss of life and livelihoods. And we cannot allow those responsible to simply walk away from the events of the last few weeks as if something never happened.”
