SA Issued Securty Alert Tunisia ahead of Pirates, Etoile match


The South African Embassy in Tunis has contacted the Tunisian authorities to ascertain security measures being taken ahead of the CAF Confederations Cup Final.

The final will see Orlando Pirates take on Etoile Sportive du Sahel in Sousse, Tunisia.

Government has advised all South Africans living in or visiting Tunis to register on the Registration of South Africans Abroad (ROSA) system and be in contact with the Embassy.

“They are also reminded that a curfew has been imposed between 9pm and 5am in the greater Tunis area until further notice.”

The concern comes after the deadly terrorist attack against the Tunisian Presidential Guard bus in Tunis which killed at least 12 people.

Pretoria has condemned the use of force, violence, intimidation or threats to address socio-political issues or towards the resolution of political disagreements.

“The South African government stands firmly with the rest of the international community in its condemnation of attacks targeting innocent civilians and reiterates its stance that terrorism, in whatever form and from whichever quarter, cannot be condoned,” the Department of International Relations and Cooperation said on Friday.
