German president in South Africa

The German president, Roman Herzog, has told the South African parliament that he is willing to encourage more investment in the country, provided productivity is good and crime is controlled.

He said foreign employees and their families needed to be able to live in safety.

Mr Herzog, who is on a five-day state visit, was later the guest of honour at a banquet given by President Mandela in Cape Town.

Mr Mandela said that, as South Africa's main trading partner, Germany was making a crucial contribution to his country's economic growth.
