The Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) has demanded that the UK provide evidence on its claims about a possible terrorist attack on South African soil. According to the travel alert which was update on January 4th and is still in place, the UK’s foreign office warned its citizens of the following:

“Terrorists are very likely to try and carry out attacks in South Africa. The main threat is from individuals who may have been inspired by terrorist groups, including Daesh, and who may carry out ‘lone actor’ attacks.”

The UK’s foreign office further warned that these attacks could take place at high profile events or at shopping centres, tourist sites and crowded places.

DIRCO’s Director-General, Zane Dangor says he is waiting for the foreign office to provide credible evidence for the “strange” and “unfounded” allegations.

He adds that the UK has also failed to follow diplomatic channels to communicate concerns.
