Foreign-Owned Shops In Durban CBD Torched, Looted

The foreign-national community in Durban is once again living in fear.

Foreign-owned shops were targeted in the Durban CBD.

Two of them were looted and set alight.

All other foreign-owned shops shut their doors after the violence.

At least one arrest has been made following the violence.

The uMkhonto we Sizwe Military Veterans Association has distanced itself from the violence.

Members met at City Hall to hand over a memorandum to representatives from the premier’s office.

“We want the government to ban the employment of foreign nationals and give them grants, giving them RDP houses, you understand,” said Dumisani Thango.
