At least five people have been killed over the past two weeks since local vigilantes in South Africa started looting and attacking shops owned by immigrants mainly from other parts of Africa

In Johannesburg, Malawian immigrant Samuel Idrssa described how his friend was stabbed and set on fire by a mob.

‘We wanted to rescue him but there were too many of them,’ he said. ‘It was shocking.’
‘We have all left our homes. Those affected are those of us who live in poor townships because we live with poor South Africans who do not have jobs.’

Violence flared days after Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini said in remarks that foreigners should ‘take their bags and go’. And pictures below capture the horror of what’s currently happening in the country.

Addressing parliament in Cape Town on Thursday, President Zuma had reiterated his condemnation of the violence, calling it a ‘violation’ of South Africa’s values.

No amount of frustration or anger can ever justify the attacks on foreign nationals and the looting of their shops,’ he said. ‘We condemn the violence in the strongest possible terms. The attacks violate all the values that South Africa embodies.’
