On Wednesday, South Africans were left worried about their safety due to an alert issued by the embassy. However, the government dismissed the reports as unfounded claims, Eyewitness News reports.

Ramaphosa made the comments during his opening address at the start of a state visit by his Spanish counterpart Pedro Sánchez in Pretoria on Thursday.

Since the alert surfaced, Ramaphosa’s administration has been criticised for being caught unaware.

“Following that we were able to engage them [US], and to get to understand precisely where this warning or information has come from. We are in the course of doing precisely that… South Africans should be best informed by the South African government.
