Cape Town – Police have been deployed in several townships in the Western Cape to protect foreign nationals after escalating threats of violence against them, a police spokesperson said on Monday.

Signs of social instability could potentially harm South Africa's image and investor sentiment, undoing the gains of hosting a successful soccer World Cup tournament that ended on Sunday.

Police said the situation in the Western Cape was tense but there have not been injuries so far.

Sporadic incidents

"There were two shacks that were burned in separate areas and there's been sporadic incidents of looting and threats have been made on foreign nationals," said Western Cape police spokesperson Frederick van Wyk.

"Police have responded. At this moment there is a heavy police contingent (in several areas) which also includes Metro police and SANDF (South African National Defence Force)," he added.

South Africa has attracted millions of workers from across the continent and further afield, but their presence is not always welcomed by those locals who compete with them for scarce jobs and resources.

Two years ago more than 60 people were killed during anti-foreigner attacks.

Police in Gauteng said there had not been incidents against foreigners in the province.

'They should all leave and f*** off'

By Shain Germaner

A meeting that was meant to unite residents of the Ramaphosa informal settlement turned ugly last night when locals voiced their hatred of foreigners.

"Why should I suffer in my own country? They should all leave and f*** off," a man screamed into the microphone.

The thousand-strong audience cheered in response.

But this was just one of dozens of hateful comments, many suggesting that unless the government removes the foreigners, violence could erupt.

The meeting, led by the International Community Unifiers (ICU), community leaders and local government, was interrupted constantly by residents' stories of their terrible encounters with foreigners.
Continues Below ↓







A member of the audience described his experience when he was robbed at gunpoint.

It was when ICU president Dennis Mpangane took the stage to speak to the crowd that the audience turned ugly.

He began by mentioning that he was not originally from South Africa, to which the audience responded with hundreds of shouts of "hamba" and "Go home".

Mpangane, unable to be heard over the screams of the crowd, then chose not to speak for the rest of the meeting.

A local priest, Reverend Brian Lehoko, and a police superintendent, known only as Mathebula, managed to calm the audience after the interruption.

Mathebula called on the residents to report any violent crimes, especially xenophobic attacks, to the police as soon as possible.

"The police will be here day and night," he added.

The meeting also addressed service delivery issues that resulted in a protest earlier this year, and it was during these complaints that residents began to speak against xenophobia.

"We had two agendas today: service delivery and xenophobia," announced a resident, "but service delivery projects will be put on hold if (xenophobic violence) happens."

The community was again promised by ward councillor Craig Bennetts and representatives from the Department of Housing that plans to tackle the road, sewerage and electricity issues were "on the move".

After the meeting, when the crowd dispersed, Mpangane said: "The meeting went as well as it could have. The community were angry about service delivery and I couldn't speak, but they do understand the (xenophobia) situation."

Ramaphosa residents were one of the centres of violence two years ago.

Somali shopkeeper Abdi Ismael has lived in Ramaphosa for four years, and was greatly affected by the xenophobic violence in 2008.

"I had three shops," he said, "but I had to leave (Ramaphosa) when the attacks started. When I returned (several months later), they had all been looted and vandalised."

Ismael has been threatened - again. "Come the end of the World Cup, you'll be leaving," warned a client of his.

"Others have told me 'this shop will be ours'," said Ismael.

"Of course I'm worried, but the community will try its best to be on top of the situation. I'm just hoping the words won't escalate into violence."

Police warning as foreigners pack bags

By Ntokozo Mfusi

A number of foreigners have begun abandoning informal settlements in Durban as threats of xenophobic attacks after the World Cup gain momentum.

Falakhe Mhlongo, a community leader at the Bottlebrush informal settlement in Chatsworth, said foreigners, mostly from Zimbabwe and Mozambique, had left the area over the past week.

"With the World Cup ending, people have left because they are scared," he said.

There were also reports of a number of foreigners leaving settlements in KwaNdengezi and Dassenhoek.

Zimbabwean community leader Shepherd Zvavanhu said people had left the city, fearing victimisation.

Although authorities have said the threats are just rumours, xenophobic comments and threats were becoming more common on Facebook.
Continues Below ↓







Refugee organisations and political groups said the threats had been circulating since 2009, but had intensified in the past two months.

KZN Refugee Council chairman Baruti Amisi said: "These rumours are not new.

"After the 2008 xenophobic attacks, some locals have been telling foreigners to leave before the end of the World Cup because there will be large-scale attacks."

Amisi said no one knew the source of the threats, but they were still being taken seriously.

"People are scared and some have packed their things and gone back to their countries, but what about those who have no home and the only home they have is this country?

"What is to happen to them?"

There were also reports of Zimbabweans leaving informal settlements in the Western Cape last week.

Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa's spokesman, Zweli Mnisi, said the government was aware of the rumours, which were being investigated.

"We appeal to locals and foreigners to please report anything that they know (about the threats) to their local police so we can swiftly deal with the culprits."

Mnisi said they would adopt a harsh stance against people caught burning homes and looting, and their approach to crime would be swift as it was during the World Cup.

Cape Town - The police and the army were ordered on Monday to take "harsh" action to stamp out anti-foreigner threats after immigrants fearing violence sought refuge in several police stations.

Seven people were arrested for public violence in a Cape Town township after weekend looting, with heavy patrols deployed in areas including the wine farming towns of Franschhoek and Paarl.

"Opportunistic criminals must know that we will deal with them harshly, there is no way we will allow them to spread fear and crime, we are working very hard to find them and prosecute them," Defence Minister Lindiwe Sisulu said.

"Law enforcement officers must deal with them harshly," she added, saying those making threats "have no place in our society".

Sisulu and police minister Nathi Mthethwa headed for Cape Town on Monday to be briefed by senior officials on the threats.

Fears of post-World Cup xenophobic violence dogged the final days of the tournament, raising memories of attacks left 62 people dead across South Africa in May 2008.

Calm restored

Community groups have warned that tensions have risen again.

The seven suspects, aged between 19 and 30, were arrested in a Cape Town township and were due to appear in court on Monday.

"They were arrested for public violence," said police spokesperson Frederick van Wyk.

Calm had been restored to the areas where "normal police patrols" with metro police and the army were in place, he said.

More than 120 immigrants remained at five police stations early on Monday after fleeing their homes at the weekend, which saw sporadic attacks on foreign-owned shops, said provincial disaster management spokesperson Daniella Ebenezer.

"The ministers also instructed that the (army and police) must today jointly deploy to ensure that all citizens are safe and no one is threatened," said a joint statement from the ministries.

PosOnderwerp: Zuma downplays xenophobia threats    Mon Jul 12, 2010 8:23 pm


July 12 2010 at 06:46PM Get IOL on your
mobile at m.iol.co.za



Threats of an outbreak of xenophobic violence in South Africa were still rumours, President Jacob Zuma said on Monday.

"I'm not certain whether there have been threats of xenophobia. I know that there have been rumours that have been reported," he told journalists in Sandton.

"There have been reports, which we don't know the source of yet, that in fact there will be xenophobia attacks after 2010.

"We are not necessarily failing to do our duty to ensure that it does not happen, but let us just make a distinction between a rumour and a real concrete report with a clear source of information."

He said the government had established a ministerial commission to deal with the situation and was "working on this issue" in the normal course of its duties.

"Government is on top of that situation and I'm sure people should not have fears because we are there as government to look at the security of people and, indeed, we are ready to deal with the situation of that nature."

He said there was not yet "concrete evidence" of xenophobic attacks.

"I don't think people should really take it as a reality when people just say 'we suspect after this there could be xenophobia', because there is no concrete evidence that South Africans have said so."

Zuma said it was unlikely that South Africans would welcome World Cup visitors on the one hand and threaten foreigners on the other.

It was reported on Monday that there had been attacks on foreigners and foreign-owned businesses in the Western Cape.

In May, Gauteng-based academics said foreigners feared a resurgence of xenophobic violence against them after the 2010 World Cup.

In 2008, 62 people died and 150 000 were displaced in a wave of xenophobic attacks which started in Gauteng. - Sapa

W Cape 'calm' after violence
July 12 2010 at 06:07PM Get IOL on your
mobile at m.iol.co.za



The Western Cape was calm during the day on Monday following Sunday's outbreak of xenophobic violence, a police spokesman said.

Police and troops would however remain out in force overnight, Captain Frederick van Wyk said.

He said no incidents were reported during the day.

Earlier on Monday Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa and his defence colleague Lindiwe Sisulu flew down to the province from Pretoria to get firsthand reports from senior law enforcement officers.

Mthethwa's spokesman Zweli Mnisi said it had been discovered that criminals were using xenophobia as an excuse to create "anarchy and anxiety".

"Any criminality disguised as xenophobia won't be tolerated," he said.

Sisulu said in a statement the army would do all it could to help the police and vowed that anybody who targeted foreigners would be "dealt with".

"Opportunistic criminals must know that we will deal with them harshly, there is no way we will allow them to spread fear and crime."

The police's Van Wyk said there were "sporadic incidents of looting" on Sunday night at shops belonging to foreigners on the Cape Flats, and in Wellington, Paarl, Franschhoek and Klapmuts.

Seven men, aged between 19 and 30, had been arrested in the Nyanga area and were charged with public violence, he said.

Spokeswoman for provincial disaster management Daniella Ebenezer said 70 foreigners had sought refuge on Sunday night at the Mbekweni police station in Paarl and 22 at Wellington.

There were smaller numbers at police stations in Franschhoek and on the Cape Flats.

She said there were "sporadic" attacks on shops on Saturday in the region, and "some incidents of looting" on Sunday.

No-one had been seriously injured.

She said according to reports from police, spaza shops and containers used as shops were "damaged" in Mbekweni, Paarl East, Wellington and Nyanga on Sunday.

The province's community development workers had been providing information to authorities on what was happening on the ground.

Mediators deployed to communities last week would continue their efforts.

"Provincial and local government are on standby to provide humanitarian support, should this be required," she said.

There have been rumours that xenophobic violence was likely in the aftermath of the 2010 Fifa World Cup and that foreigners were fleeing the Western Cape in anticipation of attacks.

Mthethwa last week angrily dismissed the speculation. He said an investigation had shown that those leaving were foreign migrant workers returning home.

In an apparent reference to Western Cape premier Helen Zille, he accused politicians who had raised the spectre of violence of being "peddlers of fear".

In a statement, the Western Cape ANC urged communities to fight xenophobia in the province and to demonstrate a "spirit of humanity" beyond the soccer World Cup. - Sapa

Nou net n "sms"gekry van Tzaneen af dat wittes gewaarsku word om die onwettiges onmiddelik te laat loop.


Daardie brief kom van 'n stamkaptein af. Ons sal die brief in die hande probeer kry en te plaas
Gister het my broer se skoonsuster inkopies gaan doen, voor die winkel in die openbaar het 'n swarte vir haar thumps-up gewys, sy het dit terug gewys bedoelende dat die span wat hy ondersteun sou wen. Hy het dit weer gewys en sy het hom gevra wat is so OK, met 'n grin op sy gesig het hy gese "EENDAG GAAN ONS AL DIE WITTES DOODMAAK"
Dit het in die openbaar gebeur sonder 'n vooraf konfrontasie of woordewisseling, net spontaan.

Die uitlanders gee gehoor aan hulle dreigemente, miskien is dit 'n poging om ook skrik op die lyf te probeer jaag.

7 nabbed after attacks on foreign owned shops
Malungelo Booi

Cape Town police have arrested seven people for looting businesses owned by foreigners. The unrest came in the wake of persistent rumours in recent weeks about foreign nationals being targeted once the World Cup is over.

Police said two shacks were destroyed and sporadic looting reported in various townships in the Cape Peninsula and Boland. They were keeping a close eye on the situation on Monday morning but said that order has been restored.

Meanwhile, some traders in Philippi East have opened their businesses despite Sunday’s trouble.


Some foreigners said they feel a little safer seeing police patrolling their streets. However several have left the area after their shacks were looted by locals and many spaza shops and salons owned by foreigners remain deserted.


Tanzanian and Burundi traders said they understand by opening their shops they are risking their lives but that they have no other choice.

PASSSOP PRAISES POLICE

Refugee rights group, Passsop has lauded police for their swift response to the attacks in some Cape townships.

Passsop said around 100 people were displaced in Mbekweni township near Paarl.

“The police response was great. The provincial government had a plan in place and people were dealt with swiftly,” said spokesperson, Braam Hanekom.

The Somali trader is one of more than 100 displaced foreigners seeking refuge at a camp site outside Wellington, north of Cape Town, following renewed xenophobic violence across Western Cape.

He and his friends said they would rather risk the war at home than the "war" in South Africa - but they can't find a way back.

Also yesterday, at least 60 Zimbabweans were camped outside a truck-stop on the N1, just outside Cape Town, desperate for a lift back to Harare.

Amid brewing tension in several townships in and around Cape Town, local government officials and politicians raced to quell talk of a "second uprising" against foreigners after the World Cup.

Somalis, Ethiopians and Zimbabweans have been the main targets.

"The first time, I was in Mitchell's Plain, but this is worse," said Mursal, whose face bears witness to the first wave of xenophobic attacks two years ago in which at least 62 people were killed countrywide.

". Now you even see coloured people [attacking]. Before it was only the blacks. Maybe now the whites are also coming," he said.

But the police and community leaders yesterday remained adamant that security forces would not allow a repeat of the tragic events.

The army has already been deployed in some hot-spots, and civil society leaders are calling for the deployment of the police recruits deployed for the World Cup.

"Yes, we do have a situation on our hands," confirmed Drakenstein Municipality's Tommy Matthee.

"But what has happened here is not the result of the community, but of a few individuals acting in a criminal manner under the disguise of xenophobia. In the main, it is shops that have been looted."

Matthee said his municipality had identified four hot-spots to which leaders would be sent to speak to residents.

He said three incidents were reported in the Silvertown area yesterday morning. There were several incidents on Sunday night in Phillipi and Langa, in Cape Town, and in Mbekweni, near Paarl.

Edgar Jennecke's daughter was shot in the hand during the violence in Mbekweni - which means "respect" in Xhosa.

"They were plundering the containers ... when the police arrived the shooting started. She was at the wrong place at the wrong time," he said.

Matthee said the police had opened criminal cases against some of the looters.

The ANC added its voice yesterday. In a strongly worded statement, the party said: "Xenophobia is a crime against humanity and the perpetrators should be isolated."

But several foreigners yesterday said the government was failing them on several fronts, including the slow pace of registering asylum seekers and lack of protection.

The temporary displacement camp at Antoniesvlei, between Wellington and Ceres, was without food yesterday afternoon.

"South Africa is a big government in Africa. They can bring a solution," said Mursal.

Xenofobie lei glo tot twee aanvalle in Bfn

Die Wêreldbeker-sokkertoernooi is verby en buitelanders in Bloemfontein het reeds deurgeloop onder xenofobiese geweld wat volgens gerugte al maande lank dreig om ná die toernooi uit te breek.

Minstens twee Bangladesjers is die naweek in Bloemfontein aangeval en hul winkels aan die brand gesteek in wat blyk om xenofobiese aanvalle te wees.

In die jongste voorval, waarin die aanvallers se werkwyse byna identies was as Saterdagaand se aanval op Mims Cash Store in Phahameng, is mnr. Johirial Islam, eienaar van Taxi Inn in die Kagisanong-woonbuurt, ook in sy winkel aangeval.

Soos in die vorige aanval het ’n groep mans, wat in ’n wit Nissan Skyline sonder nommerplate gery het, die winkel binnegekom en hulself as klante voorgedoen.

Lt.kol. Thandi Mbambo, polisiewoordvoerder, sê die mans het gemaak asof hulle lugtyd wou koop. Voordat Islam hulle kon bedien, het een van die mans glo ’n vuurwapen op hom gerig.

Die mans het petrol in die winkel uitgegooi, die plek aan die brand gesteek en gevlug. Islam het ongedeerd ontsnap.

Niks is gesteel nie, maar volgens Mbambo is sowat R20 000 se skade aangerig.

Die polisie ondersoek ’n klag van opsetlike saakbeskadiging en die rig van ’n vuurwapen. Mbambo sê die moontlikheid dat die aanval deur xenofobie gedryf is, word ook ondersoek.

In Saterdag se aanval is ook niks gesteel nie en die aanvallers het toe vir mnr. Mohammed Shahalom, die winkeleienaar, gewaarsku dat alle buitelanders teen gister uit Bloemfontein moes padgee.

Kol. Sam Makhele, provinsiale polisiewoordvoerder, sê hulle ondersteun lt.genl. Amon Mashigo se uitsprake dat geen xenofobiese geweld in die provinsie geduld sal word nie en het reeds alle polisiebeamptes ingelig om op die uitkyk te wees vir enige voorvalle.

“Enigeen wat homself skuldig maak aan xenofobiese gedrag sal die volle mag van die gereg ervaar.”

Charles Smith berig ’n leiersfiguur onder buitelanders in die Vrystaat glo dat die jongste aanvalle op buitelanders gebeur omdat sommige buitelanders self die gerugte oor vrese vir xenofobiese aanvalle versprei het en ’n misdadige element dan op die gerugte teer.

Mnr. Charles Matorera, ’n Zimbabwiër in Bloemfontein en leiersfiguur in die Zimbabwiese MDC, sê hy glo die aanvalle het niks met xenofobie of vreemdelingehaat te doen nie, maar is bloot misdaad.

”Die mense wat die gerugte oor die xenofobiese aanvalle ná die einde van die Wêreldbeker-sokkertoernooi versprei, is self buitelanders. Dit is mense wat te lui is om te werk. Die meeste is stukwerkers en omdat dit nou reënseisoen in die Kaap is en baie nie kan werk en dus nie hul verblyf kan betaal nie, versprei hulle die gerugte oor aanvalle sodat die staat hulle kan beskerm en hulle dus ’n dak oor die kop het.

“Dit is nie xenofobie nie, dit is misdaad. Xenofobie is aanvalle op mense bloot omdat hulle buitelanders is. Die misdadige elemente hoor die gerugte oor die radio en buit dit uit. Dan val hulle juis die buitelanders en ondernemings aan.’’

Matorera sê die misdaadintelligensie-eenheid van die polisie in die Vrystaat is besonder skerp. Hulle het oral bronne en is vinnig bewus as daar dreigemente teen buitelanders is. Raadslede van die Mangaung-munisipaliteit het ook al aan hom gesê hulle sal buitelanders soos in Turflaagte, Bloemfontein, beskerm.

“Niks ernstigs sal in die Vrystaat gebeur nie. Hier is meestal burgers van Lesotho en die plaaslike mense sal nie hul eie mense aanval nie. Ek luister na gesprekke hieroor op Radio Lesedi en die gemeenskappe in die Vrystaat is die buitelanders baie goedgesind. Dit is nou behalwe die tsotsi’s. Dis hulle wat die gerugte oor aanvalle uitbuit.’’)?Kort ná Saterdagaand se aanval op Mims Cash Store is mnr. Chima Nwanko, ’n Nigeriese burger, voor sy huis in Kagisanong in die kop geskiet.

Die polisie kon nog nie vasstel of die moord ook dalk met xenofobie verband hou nie.

Niemand is tot dusver vir die moord aangekeer nie.

By Esther Lewis
Staff Reporter

A man was shot dead in a park in Luzuko in Gugulethu, hours after becoming a father to a baby boy.

Groups of fellow Ghanaians gathered at the park, just off Lansdowne Road, where the 35-year-old man's body lay.

Police spokeswoman Nondumiso Paul said the victim and a friend had received a phone call from a woman, asking them to meet her at a garage.

As they walked across the park, two men approached them.

One of the suspects pointed his gun at the pair and fired shots. The Ghanaian man was hit in the head and died instantly.

The attackers ran to a getaway "cockroach" taxi, and fled, said Paul.

Paul would not confirm if the murder was related to xenophobic violence.

You think you are so special because you are white’, shouted the cops…

July 13 2010 DURBANVILLE, CAPE TOWN. Stewart Robinson, the husband of the DA-parliamentarian, has lodged a complaint against a group of police officers he and witnesses said had tried to force him off the road, hit him in the face and shouted ‘you think you are so special because you are white…’ reports Michelle Jones, michelle.jones@inl.co.za on the front page of the Cape Times. The newspaper ‘s journalist Caryn Dolley also reported that there have been widespread attacks against Somali-owned shops in Western Cape townships -- within a day after the WC2010 ended – and exactly as had been threatened for the entire past month.

Stewart Robinson said an officer had remarked: "Because you're white, you think you're special." Robinson is the husband of Denise Robinson, a Democratic-Alliance parliamentarian and the shadow minister of Women, youth, children and people with Disabilities. He said he had been driving into Durbanville at the speed limit of 60km/h, along Race Course Road, on Monday. A police vehicle came up behind him and tried to overtake on a solid white line.

Zuma downplays xenophobia threats

Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa and Defence Minister Lindiwe Sisulu flew into the Western Cape on Monday to assess the xenophobic attacks as foreign shopkeepers were threatened and forced from their stores from Khayelitsha to Franschhoek, from Bloekombos to Paarl. Scores of mainly Somali trading-families from squatter camps around the Western Cape spent the night at police station enclosures – too scared to return to their homes.

THIS IS GETTING MORE AND MORE INTERESTING: BACKWASH- RACIST BLACK GROUP- ANC CLOSE CONNECTIONS-LOUISE ASMAL- DAUGHTER OF KADER ASMAL..PREVIOUS "MINISTER OF EDUCATION"- FUNDING FROM E.U- "HUMAN RIGHTS MOVEMENT." MMMMM....THE LITTLE EVIL PUZZLE IS TAKING SHAPE. THE BOERS WERE NOT SO WRONG AFTER ALL...THAT 3RD FORCE...THAT 3RD FORCE!


BLACK NEWSPAPER INSTIGATOR OF VIOLENCE AGAINST WHITES

Blackwash group organiser Andile Mngxitama – importantly, a policy adviser of the ANC-run European Union-funded Foundation for Human Rights – has been a busy bee. He’s been distributes Blackwash pamphlets urging black township dwellers to vent their anger on ‘settlers’; and has also been found guilty of spreading false propaganda against the Afrikaners of Ventersdorp in a City Press newspaper article headlined “Blacks in Bondage’.



April 11 2010 City Press article by Andile Mngxitama (of Blackwash) falsely claimed that Ventersdorp mayor Kabelo Mashi was killed by ‘white racist extremists’ when he was in fact killed by a black man, Johannes Monatle, ten years earlier…

July 13 2010 - The City Press newspaper – which has a very large readership among South Africa’s black community - has been found guilty of “distributing false information regarding Afrikaners”.

The press ombudsman ruled on July 12 2010 that City Press had 'breached the press code by publishing an opinion piece on 11 April 2010 headlined “Blacks in Bondage’’ by Andile Mngxitama, who not only is a founder/organiser of the black-racist group Blackwash, which is currently distributing pamphlets (below) throughout South African townships urging black South Africans not to engage in ‘xenophobic violence’ against fellow blacks – but rather to ‘vent their anger on settlers’. The man also is an influential policy advisor to the European Union-funded Foundation for Human Rights…This grant-gathering organisation, funded by the European Union, is run by influential ANC-linked leadership figures such as Mrs Louise Asmal. Blackwash is publicly posing as a ‘black-consciousness group’ although it has direct links with the ANC-leadership.

PosOnderwerp: SACP: It's crime, not xenophobia   Tue Jul 13, 2010 7:09 pm

This week's attacks on foreigners were criminal acts, not xenophobia, the South African Communist Party (SACP) said on Tuesday.

A criminal element was "hell-bent" on manipulating the problems and challenges facing communities, the SACP said in a statement.

"These are no xenophobic attacks... but acts of criminality to loot and destabilise our communities to provide cover for these criminals."

It called on structures in the tripartite alliance and other "progressive organisations" to unite against these criminals.

"Our structures must equally take a lead in providing leadership in dealing with genuine service delivery crises," it said.

The National Education, Health and Allied Workers' Union said law enforcement agencies should investigate "these criminal elements" and throw them behind bars.

At the same time the government needed to ensure that underlying social problems in communities were speedily resolved so that lack of service delivery could not be used as an excuse to target foreigners.

The media should also guard against exaggerating crimes against foreigners by labelling them xenophobic attacks as this could become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

In a statement also issued on Tuesday, the South African Institute of Race Relations warned that there had been little change in the environment that gave rise to the xenophobia attacks of 2008.


CONTINUES BELOW



Spokesperson Catherine Schulze said the institute was not predicting an outbreak of violence, as there was not enough information to do so.

But it was cautioning that the environment that gave rise to the attacks of 2008 was "largely unchanged".

"Poverty, unemployment, and incomes indicators have not shifted significantly since 2008, while high levels of crime and violence are an everyday reality in many poor communities.

"At the same time, reports of increased threats, some disguised as jokes and idle banter, created an enabling environment for a renewed series of attacks."

She said the institute urged the government and the African National Congress to use their leadership positions to change perceptions that many black South Africans harboured towards foreign African immigrants.

The three statements came after a series of incidents in the Western Cape, where on Sunday night a number of foreign-owned spaza and container shops in Cape Town and surrounding towns were burned and looted.

Some vandalism and attempted looting continued during the day on Monday in Khayelitsha, where police helped Somali shop owners remove their goods.

Police said on Tuesday morning however that the situation was "calm".

On Monday, President Jacob Zuma said though there had been rumours of planned new xenophobic violence, he was not certain there had been actual threats.

He said the government had established a ministerial commission to deal with the situation and people "should not have fears".

In May, Gauteng-based academics said foreigners feared a resurgence of xenophobic violence against them after the 2010 World Cup.

In 2008, 62 people died and 150 000 were displaced in a wave of xenophobic attacks which started in Gauteng. --Sapa

President cries ‘rumour’ as troops patrol Cape Flats

2010/07/13
Jacques Keet


POLICE Minister Nathi Mthethwa and Defence Minister Lindiwe Sisulu flew to Cape Town yesterday for a briefing by top officers after a wave of xenophobic violence on Sunday night, while President Jacob Zuma said threats of attacks were unconfirmed “rumours”.

Earlier, police and troops were out in force as scores of foreigners sought refuge at police stations in Cape Town and surrounding towns after mostly Somali-owned shops were looted and some torched.

There have been rumours of attacks and reports of foreigners fleeing the Cape, but Mthethwa angrily dismissed this as rumour-mongering last week, saying they were foreign migrant workers going home.

Police said late yesterday that “tranquility has been restored”, but security forces would “continue to deploy in high numbers” overnight.

Defence Minister Lindiwe Sisulu said the army – which also joined police patrols in the East Rand last Wednesday – would do all it could to help police: “Opportunistic criminals must know that we will deal with them harshly. There is no way we will allow them to spread fear and crime. We are working very hard to find them and prosecute them.”

Police reported “sporadic” looting on Sunday night of foreign-owned shops in Nyanga, Philippi East and Khayelitsha in Cape Town, as well as in Wellington, Paarl, Franschhoek and Klapmuts. Spaza and container-shops were “damaged” in Paarl, Wellington and Nyanga and set alight in Philippi.

“A heavy police contingency was deployed in conjunction with metro police and SANDF in all these areas.”

Seven men were held in Nyanga on public violence charges.

A provincial disaster management spokesman said 70 “fearful” foreigners had sought refuge with Paarl police and 22 in Wellington. Smaller numbers were at stations in Franschhoek, and Langa and Harare in Cape Town after “sporadic” shop attacks on Saturday and “some incidents of looting” on Sunday.

Mediators would continue their efforts, while “provincial and local government are on stand-by” for relief aid.

Police reportedly advised foreigners, mainly Somalis, to leave Nyanga and escorted numbers out of the area shortly before midnight on Sunday.

Zuma said in Sandton yesterday: “I’m not certain whether there have been threats of xenophobia. I know that there have been rumours that have been reported. There have been reports, which we don’t know the source of yet, that in fact there will be xenophobia attacks after (the World Cup).

“We are not necessarily failing to do our duty to ensure that it does not happen, but let us just make a distinction between a rumour and a real concrete report with a clear source of information,” said Zuma

A ministerial commission was “working on this issue” .

“The government is on top of that situation and I’m sure people should not have fears, because we are there as the government to look at the security of people and, indeed, we are ready to deal with the situation of that nature.”

There was no “concrete evidence” yet of threats. It was unlikely South Africans would welcome World Cup visitors while threatening foreigners, Zuma added. – Sapa

Measures in place to fight xenophobic attacks: Mthethwa July 10 2010 , 9:44:00



Minister of Police and Chairperson of the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Xenophobia, Nathi Mthethwa, says measures are in place to protect all communities against xenophobic attacks. This after the South African Council of Churches (SACC) announced that it will launch a hotline to address xenophobic attacks and it will be linked with police in all nine provinces to counter any attacks. The council says the rumours should not be underestimated.

There were earlier reports that foreigners were to leave the country over rumours of attacks targeting foreign nationals after the Soccer World Cup ends tomorrow.

Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu earlier also made a passionate plea for preventing any new xenophobic attacks.

Casual xenophobic threats increasing - SAIRR
Catherine Schulze
13 July 2010


Catherine Schulze says anti-immigrant hostility endures


The Unit for Risk Analysis at the South African Institute of Race Relations has urged senior leaders in Government to make a series of concerted public statements condemning threats of xenophobic violence.

The Institute said that it was receiving information that casual threats and insinuations of violence against foreign African migrants were increasing. An Institute spokesperson, Catherine Schulze, said that it was a frustrating environment, as all the information at hand was anecdotal. It was very difficult to find hard facts on the extent to which the threats were escalating.

Schulze said that the Institute was not predicting an outbreak of violence as there was not enough information at hand to make such a prediction. Rather it was cautioning that the environment that gave rise to the attacks of 2008 was largely unchanged. Poverty, unemployment, and incomes indicators had not shifted significantly since 2008, while high levels of crime and violence were an everyday reality in many poor communities. At the same time, reports of increased threats, some disguised as jokes and idle banter, created an enabling environment for a renewed series of attacks.

Schulze said there was no point in the Government's denying the presence of xenophobic prejudice in the country as attacks had continued to occur since 2008, although not on the same scale as those of that year. The Institute had previously been told that the police were unable to devote resources to determining the exact extent of these attacks.

The Institute now urged the Government and the ANC to use their leadership positions in the country to change the perceptions that many black South Africans harboured towards foreign African immigrants. The Institute described this discrimination as possibly the most prevalent form of overt racism in the country.

In the main, this prejudice appeared to revolve around the view that foreign Africans ‘stole' jobs, services, and even women that should belong to South Africans. Schulze said that on balance the presence of migrants had a positive economic impact on the countries that received them. Migrants introduced new skills and levels of entrepreneurship, formed new consumer markets, and contributed to tax revenue through VAT and in some cases even income and company taxation.

Zimbabweans 'fear new S.Africa xenophobia unrest'
(AFP) – 4 hours ago

GENEVA — Zimbabwean refugees returning to their home country in recent days are reporting fears of a resurgence in anti-foreigner violence in South Africa, the International Organisation for Migration said Tuesday.

The IOM's centre at South African border town Beitbridge "reports increased traffic of Zimbabweans who have decided to temporarily return home because of fears of xenophobic flare-ups in South Africa," said Jared Bloch, spokesman for the agency.

A survey of 140 returning Zimbabweans over the weekend also found that more than 90 percent had fled threats of violence while the rest had actually suffered xenophobic violence, he added.

"Cross-border flows over the last week of the World Cup were atypically characterised by trucks laden with furniture and other household goods, indicating that people are anticipating outbreaks of xenophobic violence and are sending their belongings back to Zimbabwe to minimise losses and to allow for a quicker flight should they need to make a quick getaway," said Bloch.

The spokesman did not have figures on the numbers of returning Zimbabweans in recent days.

South Africa's government Monday ordered the police and army to take tough action to stamp out anti-foreigner threats after immigrants fled violence as the World Cup came to a close.

Seven people were arrested for public violence in a Cape Town township after weekend looting forced scores of immigrants from other African countries to abandon their shops and seek shelter in police stations.

Xenophobic attacks across South Africa in May 2008 left 62 people dead.

Xenofobie: Stil in die Wes-Kaap
Xenofobie steeds net gerugte sê Zuma
Weermag gereed om polisie te help

Kaapstad - Biskop Paul Verryn van die Johannesburgse Sentraal Metodistekerk, sê hy en buitelanders wat by sy kerk in die middestad woon, het dreigemente van xenofobiese geweld ontvang, het RSG op hul webwerf berig.

Volgens Verryn het 'n man hom by 'n verkeerslig in die noorde van Johannesburg genader en hom gewaarsku. Die man het glo gesê as geweld teen buitelanders uitbreek, die kerk ook aangeval sal word.

Sibanengi Dube, 'n woordvoerder van die MDC in Zimbabwe, het gesê hulle het talle oproepe van bekommerde Zimbabwiërs ontvang.

Volgens Dube is buitelanders bang om te slaap, en vrees hulle sal in hul huise aan die brand gesteek word.

Xenophobia in South Africa preparations now in full motion, history shows denial Wednesday, July 7, 2010 - 16:45 Cape Town, South Africa - Scores of woman and children are seeking a lift out of the country, they are waiting next to the N1 near Cape Town, near Paarl and in other parts of the country. There are also mini exoduses all over the country. When one of our sources tried to find out where the men were they said "the men are staying here to fight." The men also are working currently so they might send their families home earlier and then follow in a few days. This is what we figured, we don't know what the woman meant with "they will fight" although one can think that they want to defend themselves this time like they said they were going to do in 2008's xenophobic attacks. (The question arose because there were a lot of woman and children but so few men, however there are men leaving the country) All relevant organizations are now in full motion and preparing for xenophobia in South Africa after the World Cup. Various statements have been released saying totally opposite things. ANC chairperson and former deputy president Baleka Mbete said the rumors which are causing the exodus is baseless. Like the 2008 xenophobic attacks the "counselors" and those that run the show are in full denial but behind the scenes some of them work together with the attackers. This was also well documented in 2008. Also in 2008 Thabo Mbeki, then the president of South Africa denied that xenophobia was the problem and blamed the events that happened, the people that got murdered and the spontaneous riots on "common criminals". His response was slow and unhelpful after sixty two people died and thousands fled the country and their homes. Hundreds of thousands were displaced and only recently some and then all of the camps closed. Even when he said sorry, he said the following "The dark days of May, which have brought us here today, were visited on our country by people who acted with criminal intent," So today we see here the same thing unfolding, at least the minister of police said that they will not tolerate aggression against foreigners. Although he also said that Helen Zille is seeking political gains after she warned about xenophobia. The Human rights commission, the police as well as other organizations and parties are working on the threat.
