South Africa condemns deadly attacks in the Philippines

President Cyril Ramaphosa has, on behalf of the Government and people of South Africa, extended the country’s deepest condolences to President Rodrigo Duterte and the people of the Republic of the Philippines following the unjustifiable terrorists attacks that took place on Sunday, 27 January 2019, where two bombs exploded at Jolo Cathedral in Sulu, in the southern Philippines, killing 20 people and wounding scores of others.

The South African Government wishes to express its sincere condolences to the families and friends for the loss of their loved ones and speedy recovery to the injured. During this trying time, the thoughts of South Africans are with the people and the Government of the Philippines.

Terrorism in any form and from whichever quarter cannot be condoned. South Africa stands firmly with the international community in condemning all terrorism. The South African Government will continue to support regional and international efforts to address the scourge of terrorism in all its forms.
