Foreigners must leave – South Africans chant in fresh protest

A fresh round of violence is currently building up in the streets of Johannesburg, South Africa, as armed protesters are out again, demanding that foreigners their country immediately.

South African newspaper, Sowetan Live, reports that the protesters, who carried weapons such as knobkerries, are waiting to be addressed by Mangosuthu Buthelezi, a notable politician and Zulu tribe leader. The protesters, who are said to be residents of hostels in eastern Johannesburg, marched on Sunday along Jules Street in the area.

Sowetan Live reports that Siphiwe Mhlongo, chairman of hostel headmen (izinduna) in Gauteng, said South African nationals are angry at jobs being taken by foreign nationals, unhappy about and RDP houses being owned by foreigners.
