Archbishop Buti Tlhagale preaching at a Mass in Durban to receive and welcome the new coadjutor archbishop of the Archdiocese of Durban, Abel Gabuza, said that foreign nationals are “made a scapegoat for the glaring shortcomings of government and local authorities”. The archbishop offered a strong message to the more than 5 000 people gathered at St Henry’s Marist College in Durban, calling Catholic faithful to embrace the stranger in their midst, who today are very much refugee and migrants from across Africa.
