Violence gains momentum in parts of South Africa
Over 90 people have been arrested on the grounds of xenophobic attacks on foreigners in Gauteng of Tshwane, South Africa. Those arrested were mostly caught in the acts of looting shops or carrying stolen goods.
Gauteng Provincial Commissioner of Police, Elias Mawela, described the acts of violence as lawless and inhumane. It would be recalled that there has been issues of xenophobic attacks on foreigners living in South Africa where cars and other valuable properties had been burnt with several individuals sustaining serious injuries.
However, the Police have warned that those who are hell-bent on turning Gauteng into a crime haven will surely be found and will be brought to face the full might of the law.
