SAHRC Urges Govt to Act on Xenophobia

The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) has called on the government to act on the ‘sporadic attacks’ on immigrants and the looting of their businesses across the country.

The SAHRC says it has visited some of the communities affected by the attacks which have all the hallmarks of xenophobia, since only foreigners and their property seem to be targeted.

SAIRR: Looting Not Caused by Inequality

The South African Institute of Race Relations (SAIRR) believes economic inequality as the driving force behind recent violence’s in Soweto.

SAIRR head of media and public affairs, Mienke Steytler, believes economic inequality as the driving force behind recent violence in South Africa.

In the past week, residents in Soweto, Kagiso and Diepsloot looted shops owned by foreign nationals within the community. The police are calling it criminal acts while some say the attacks are xenophobic.
