'We are going to burn you with tyres'
July 06 2010 at 01:24PM




A group of foreigners, mainly Zimbabweans, are camping outside a truck stop with their belongings on the N1 near Paarl in a desperate bid to catch the first ride out of the Western Cape.

They said they had been told by locals that they, long with their their homes, would be burned after the soccer finale.

Civic organisations and churches are among those who have warned of potential attacks on foreigners after the World Cup, but police have said they have no evidence to suggest that the wave of xenophobic attacks that took place in 2008 would be repeated after July 11.


Yesterday, the Cape Argus spoke to several Zimbabweans sitting at the exit area of the Winelands 1-Stop Engen garage on the N1, and others waiting near the tollgate at the Huguenot tunnel.

They have been attempting to get rides to Joburg from truck drivers at "cheaper" rates in a desperate bid to escape what they say are impending xenophobic attacks. From there, they said, it would be easier to catch a bus to Zimbabwe.

According to the Zimbabweans, getting a lift on a truck to Joburg can cost between R100 and R200 per person, without luggage, whereas a taxi can cost about R400 per person, excluding luggage.

Some said they had been waiting for five days, while others arrived three days ago.

People interviewed said they were fleeing Dunoon, Philippi, Philippi East, Crossroads, Malmesbury and Grabouw.

The Zimbabweans claimed they had been confronted by local residents who threatened to "burn them and their homes", after the World Cup.

Families gathered with as many of their belongings as they could transport, including fridges, microwaves, double beds and mattresses, couches, pots, buckets and bags of clothes.

Tamiviraishe Mazana, who had been working on a chicken farm in Site View in Grabouw, was among the group of more than 50 people waiting outside the Engen Garage before noon yesterday.

He and his family had spent the weekend camped outside the garage. They said they would be willing to return to South Africa if there were no attacks after the soccer tournament.

"We are scared for our lives. We never know what is going to happen," said Mazana.

Rachel Gatsi, who worked in the kitchen on a farm in Grabouw, said she was told "face to face" by her neighbours that she would have to leave. "Some of them tell us, 'We are going to burn you with tyres'... We are scared; we have to go."

Tendai Kadzviti, 34, fled his home in Strand's Zwelenthemba informal settlement.

He claimed locals were "holding meetings to plan attacks".

According to Kadzviti, landlords and homeowners from who they had been renting asked the Zimbabweans to vacate the premises and had refused to accept rent from July 1.

Zim-burgers vat die pad ná dreigemente
2010-07-06 08:30


Maygene de Wee en Janine van der Riet

Die Burger

Kaapstad - Uit vrees vir xenofobiese aanvalle het sowat 200 Zimbabwiese burgers Maandag inderhaas hul besittings opgepak en op die N1 buite Kraaifontein saamrygeleenthede gesoek om na hul land terug te keer.

Terwyl bakkies een na die ander by die Engen-vulstasie langs die N1 stilgehou het om mense en hul laaste aardse besittings af te laai, was ander reeds besig om met vragmotorbestuurders te onderhandel oor ’n saamrygeleentheid na Johannesburg.

Ook by die Hugenote-tolhek het honderde buitelanders vir ’n geleentheid gewag.

Verskeie van dié Zimbab­wiërs het aan Die Burger gesê hulle is die afgelope twee maande gereeld gedreig dat hulle aangeval gaan word sodra die Wêreldbeker-sokkertoernooi verby is.

Prince Chivasa (40) van Harare, Zimbabwe, het gesê hy het die afgelope vyf jaar in Malmesbury gewoon.

Volgens hom hoor hulle elke dag dat hulle aangeval gaan word sodra die sokkertoernooi verby is. “My gesin, my vrou en my kinders is vir my belangrik. Ek sal hulle met my lewe beskerm.”

Intussen slaan vragmotorbestuurders munt uit die mense se lot en vra tot R200 per persoon om buitelanders na Johannesburg te vervoer.

’n Hartseer prentjie was dié van Tafadzwa Miriri, ’n swanger ma met ’n vierjarige dogter, wat langs die pad op hul dubbelbed gesit het. Hul enigste besittings was in hopies langs hulle. Hulle was vol hoop dat hulle ’n geleentheid Johannesburg toe sal kry.

Hulle het in Guguletu gewoon voor die dreigemente begin het. “Vir my ongebore kind en my kleuter se veiligheid moet ons so gou moontlik padgee. Die busse is buitensporig duur, dus wag ons vir ’n goedhartige vragmotorbestuurder.”

’n Vrou wat saam met haar suster vir ’n geleentheid gewag het, het gesê hulle gaan liewer in Zimbabwe voortsukkel as om hul lewe hier te waag. Hulle het al hul huishoudelike goedere, van yskaste tot messe en vurke, saam met hulle gevat en gehoop om teen sononder ’n geleentheid Johannesburg toe te kry.

“Anders gaan ons hier moet slaap en Dinsdag verder hoop,” het sy mismoedig gesê.

’n Man wat slegs ses maande in Suid-Afrika is, het gesê hy ken nie dié tipe lewe nie. “Ek sal eerder versukkeld in Zimbabwe wees en steeds lewe as om hier doodgemaak te word.”

Intussen het lt.kol. André Traut, provinsiale polisiewoordvoerder, gesê die polisie gaan nie op gerugte reageer nie.

“Sou ons egter bewus word van ’n bedreiging, sal daar onmiddellik opgetree word.”

PosOnderwerp: Xenophobia exodus continues   Tue Jul 06, 2010 9:30 pm

Cape Town - Foreign nationals fearing renewed outbreaks of xenophobic violence reportedly continued to seek transport out of Cape Town on Tuesday.

Employees of the Engen Winelands filling station at Kraaifontein on the N1 said there were still numbers of Zimbabweans and other nationals at the facility looking for lifts.

About 200 foreigners were camped out there on Monday, some with items of furniture, in the hope of securing lifts with truckers.

Cape Town's disaster management said it was playing no role in dealing with the exodus.

Spokesperson Wilfred Solomons-Johannes said civil society groups had been told that if lives were in danger, they should report this to the police or the provincial disaster management centre.

Can't take action


"Nothing to date has thus far been reported to us that we can action," Solomons-Johannes said.

Braam Hanekom, spokesperson for refugee rights organisation Passop, said it was "really, really sad" that foreign nationals could feel so unprotected, and that they were prepared to displace themselves on the basis of rumours.

However, it also had to be understood that rumours could create a very hostile environment for foreigners.

Police in the Western Cape had been very quick to respond, he said, and had re-established the safety forum set up following the outbreak of xenophobic violence in 2008.

"They've given us a list of every police station commander that we can contact 24 hours a day if there's anything of a xenophobic nature," he said.

Passop recognised the efforts being made by politicians at a national and provincial level.

However, it was important to get municipal councillors, some of whom had in the past instigated violence against foreigners, to also take a stand against xenophobia.

Tensions


"The difficulty with this rumour is that it's created such tension in communities that one isolated incident might spread to other communities quickly," Hanekom said.

He said that in addition to the foreigners leaving Cape Town there had been a lot of intra-city displacement, with people moving away from townships to the suburbs or to industrial areas.

"It's really unpleasant because nothing has happened, and yet we've got displacement," he said.

A lot of Somali traders in the townships were keeping stock at very low levels, or not restocking, because of fears of looting.

Western Cape police spokesperson Colonel Billy Jones said there was "no policing" involved because the xenophobia fears were currently based only on rumours.

However provincial commission Mzwandile Petros had reconvened the safety forum, and had requested civil society organisations to help calm people's fears.

FOREIGNERS living in Tshwane are contemplating going back to their home countries following rumours that xenophobic attacks will flare up after the World Cup.



Gravely concerned about the rumours, a 47-year-old Mozambican who runs a spaza shop in Mamelodi East said he would not wait to see if the threats were acted on.

“We were attacked in 2008 and I know how it feels to be attacked for nothing other than your nationality.

"People are already boasting about how they are going to kill us and rape our wives come the final whistle,” said the man, who asked not to be named.


Somali national Mohammed Osman, who runs a grocery store in Atteridgeville, said foreigners were attacked whenever there were service delivery protests.

“In April I was attacked and my shop was looted by a group of people after the service delivery protest at Itireleng informal settlement. I am afraid and nobody cares about our safety.

“I take these threats seriously because we are under constant attacks. I want to leave before I die in a foreign country,” he said.

Mathews Ngwenya, 43, who came from Mozambique 30 years ago, said: “I have been here for more than 30 years and I have been granted South African citizenship.
“All my children were born here so I do not know where to go.

"I am pleading with my fellow people to take some time to think deeply before they start attacking innocent people.”

Secretary-general of the Gauteng Civic Association Themba Ncalo said xenophobic attacks would not stop until the government sorted out service delivery challenges.





Meanwhile in Cape Town, the police are taking the threats of xenophobia seriously.
Western Cape provincial police commissioner Mzwandile Petros has been holding weekly “safety forum” meetings with crime intelligence, the National Prosecuting Authority, refugee rights organisations and civil society groups to discuss the threat of another attack.

On Friday, Petros gave out a list of the cellphone numbers of all detective branch commanders in the province. They have been told to keep their phones on around the clock in case of emergencies.

And on Sunday, about 50 locals and foreigners, police and the former councillor from Philippi East, near Nyanga township, attended a meeting called by the NGO Africa Unite and the Institute for the Healing of Memories.
The small crowd released a statement calling for more police patrols in all townships as the World Cup draws to a close.

RESIDENTS of Yeoville, Johannesburg, which has a large community of foreigners, mostly from other African countries, are setting up a help desk to manage any outbreak of attacks on foreigners after the World Cup.



The help desk is meant to provide a channel for residents to report threats of violence against foreigners and to try to intervene by encouraging dialogue.
Maurice Smithers of the Africa Diaspora Forum said the organisation had heard enough anecdotal evidence to convince them that the threat of violence was real.
The forum is not the only organisation on high alert. Last month Cabinet set up an Inter-ministerial Committee to deal with threats of attacks on foreigners.
The Consortium for Refugees and Migrants in South Africa warned in May that there were “widespread reports by foreign nationals around the country that they are being threatened with violence after the World Cup”.
“While for now these threats are mainly verbal, taking them seriously and initiating strong and immediate preventive action by government and other institutions is the only way to ensure that the actual violence is avoided,” said Cormsa in a statement.
Cormsa reported that “at least 10 incidents had occurred in 2010 already” in areas in Mpumalanga and Gauteng, which predominantly involved the looting of foreigners’ shops.
“When people separate themselves, you get mistrust and prejudice,” Smithers said.
He said Yeoville was a “geographic space occupied by migrants” lacking a sense of community and not taking “collective responsibility”.[

'We have received many death threats'

July 07 2010 at 10:56AM

Scores of Zimbabwean refugees are desperately trying to return home despite assurances from the city council that the threat of an outbreak of xenophobic violence after the World Cup is simply a rumour.
( THE ANC SAYS "DON'T WORRY- BE HAPPY- EVERYTHING IS GONNA B ALL-RIGHT. THE LOCALS SAY: "TODAY IS GONNA B A GOOD-GOOD DAY TO DIE..A GOOD GOOD DAY INDEED..." SOMEHOW I TEND TO GIVE MORE CREDIBILITY TO THE LOCAL VERSION...)

On Tuesday least 50 Zimbabweans sat silently on a stretch of grass next to the N1 tollgate at the Hugenot Tunnel, waiting in the hope that a vehicle would stop so that they could obtain a lift.

On Wednesday, for the third consecutive day, a group of mainly Zimbabweans plan to wait at the Huguenot tollgate to try to get a lift out of Cape Town.

With blank expressions they sat between their belongings, including mounds of clothes and blankets. One man even had a bed he wanted to take with him.

"We don't feel safe in this country. We (Zimbabweans ) have received many death threats and it is obvious we are not welcome, so we will rather go home to our families where we can live in peace and dignity," said John Smith, 40, a Zimbabwean who has lived in Khayelitsha for two years.

He said a local person had threatened him with death last week, but he had received numerous threats since the World Cup started.

"I am disgusted at the behaviour and negative attitude shown towards foreigners and I will never return to this hellhole which you people (South Africans) call a democracy," Smith said.

Another Zimbabwean, Valentine Johns, who had also stayed in Khayelitsha but was trying to return to Zimbabwe because of all the threats he received, said he had initially left his homeland because of political problems and the declining economy under Robert Mugabe's Zanu-PF rule.

Johns said he had left Zimbabwe to get away from Mugabe, but now believed it was better to die at home than to be burnt to death in a foreign country. "When I arrived I was expecting employment and friendly people. Instead I got no employment and constant threats of being killed. I had no idea life would be this risky," he said.

In June the cabinet re-established an inter-ministerial committee, headed by Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa, to investigate threats against foreigners and attacks on them.

On Tuesday Mthethwa's spokesperson, Zweli Mnisi, said the committee planned to meet tomorrow morning. He said the media would be briefed on the outcome of the meeting.

Mayoral committee member for safety and security JP Smith said on Tuesday that while the city was ready to react should violence break out, he had not heard of any attacks against foreigners so far, nor seen "blatant evidence" that violence was occurring or would occur. Smith said that through reporting, the media was generating panic about possible violence.

In June the army was deployed to Du Noon in an operation residents said had to do with persistent rumours of xenophobic violence.

Zimbabwiërs ‘wil nie in SA doodgaan’

2010-07-07 07:49


Jan Gerber

Die Burger

De Doorns - Dit is beter om nou na Zimbabwe terug te keer as om hier in xenofobiese geweldpleging te sterf, het Zimbabwiese immigrante Dinsdag gesê.

Sowat 50 immigrante het Dinsdag by die Hugenote-tonnel se tolhek buite die Paarl vir ’n saamrygeleentheid na Johannesburg onderweg na hul geboorteland gewag omdat baie van hulle in vrees leef nadat hulle met hernude geweld gedreig is.

“Ek wil nie hê mense moet doodgaan nie. Dit is beter om nóú te gaan,” het Brian Mujiki (34) gesê.

Mujiki, wat in Mbekweni buite die Paarl gewoon het, het sy werk as vragmotorbestuurder prysgegee om na Zimbabwe terug te keer.

“My baas wou nie hê ek moet gaan nie, maar ek kan nie myself in gevaar stel vir werk nie,” het dié pa van twee kinders wat in Zimbabwe by hul grootouers bly, gesê.

Volgens Mujiki wag hulleom ’n geleentheid by ’n vragmotorbestuurder te kry.

Mense in Mbekweni dreig hulle gereeld, het Mujiki gesê. “Ek vertrou nie dié mense nie. Ek wil myself beveilig.”

Vir Memory Simbe (31), ook van Mbekweni, is die wydverspreide xenofobiese geweld van 2008 nog vlak in die geheue.

“Hulle belowe ons dit gaan hierdie keer erger wees as in 2008,” het sy gesê.

Simbe het gesê die groep het oor die naweek by die tolhek begin saamdrom. Vragmotorbestuurders het Maandag mense opgelaai, maar Dinsdag teen omstreeks 13:30 het nog nie een van hulle ’n geleentheid gekry nie.

Volgens Simbe en Mujiki is Zimbabwe veiliger as hier. Hulle sal na Suid-Afrika terugkeer as die situasie verander.

By die Shell Ultra City op die N1 buite Worcester het ’n groepie van sowat tien Zimbab­wiërs ook vir ’n geleentheid gewag. Hulle vlug nie, hulle gaan vir familie in Zimbabwe kuier, het Margaret Banda (37), ’n haarkapper van Worcester, huiwerig gesê. “Ek is nie gedreig nie. Ek gaan terugkom.”

Dit was Dinsdag stil in die vlugtelingekamp vir Zimbabwiërs wat op De Doorns se sportveld opgerig is nadat xenofobiese geweldpleging in November verlede jaar sowat 1 000 Zimbab­wiërs uit hul huise gedryf het.

Sowat 250 mense woon deesdae in die kamp. Baie het na Zimbabwe teruggekeer of elders in Suid-Afrika ’n heenkome gevind.

Volgens Ebinah Musandirire (42) het baie van die huidige kampbewoners Maandag weer op plase begin werk en is daar nie ’n groot groep op pad na Zimbabwe nie.

De Doorns
Dit is beter om nou na Zimbabwe terug te keer as om hier in xenofobiese geweldpleging te sterf, het Zimbabwiese immigrante gister gesê.
Sowat 50 het gister by die Hugenote-tonnel se tolhek buite die Paarl vir ’n saamrygeleentheid na Johannesburg onderweg na hul geboorteland gewag omdat baie van hulle in vrees leef nadat hulle met hernude geweld gedreig is.
“Ek wil nie hê mense moet doodgaan nie. Dit is beter om nóú te gaan,” het mnr. Brian Mujiki (34) gesê.
Mujiki, wat in Mbekweni buite die Paarl gewoon het, het sy werk as vragmotorbestuurder prysgegee om na Zimbabwe terug te keer.
“My baas wou nie hê ek moet gaan nie, maar ek kan nie myself in gevaar stel vir werk nie,” het dié pa van twee kinders wat in Zimbabwe by hul grootouers bly, gesê.
Volgens Mujiki wag hulleom ’n geleentheid by ’n vragmotorbestuurder te kry.
Mense in Mbekweni dreig hulle gereeld, het Mujiki gesê. “Ek vertrou nie dié mense nie. Ek wil myself beveilig.”
Vir me. Memory Simbe (31), ook van Mbekweni, is die wydverspreide xenofobiese geweld van 2008 nog vlak in die geheue.
“Hulle belowe ons dit gaan hierdie keer erger wees as in 2008,” het sy gesê.
Simbe het gesê die groep het oor die naweek by die tolhek begin saamdrom. Vragmotorbestuurders het Maandag mense opgelaai, maar gister teen omstreeks 13:30 het nog nie een van hulle ’n geleentheid gekry nie.
Volgens Simbe en Mujiki is Zimbabwe veiliger as hier. Hulle sal na Suid-Afrika terugkeer as die situasie verander.
By die Shell Ultra City op die N1 buite Worcester het ’n groepie van sowat tien Zimbab&shy;wiërs ook vir ’n geleentheid gewag. Hulle vlug nie, hulle gaan vir familie in Zimbabwe kuier, het me. Margaret Banda (37), ’n haarkapper van Worcester, huiwerig gesê. “Ek is nie gedreig nie. Ek gaan terugkom.”

Xenophobia in South Africa preperations 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 dont 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.

Somaliërs se winkels beroof
2010-07-08 09:06


Janine van der Riet

Die Burger

Kaapstad. – Twee winkels wat aan Somaliërs behoort, is Woensdagmiddag helder oordag in Khayelitsha beroof en die eienaars is aangesê om uit Suid-Afrika pad te gee.

In die eerste voorval is die Madiba-supermark in Lingelethu-Wes beroof. Volgens die eienaar, Hassan Ahmed, het ses mans die winkel se veiligheidshek oopgebreek om toegang te kry.

Die rowers het geld van die bestuurder geëis en gesê die eienaar moet die land verlaat.

Daarna het hulle met meer as R6000 kontant en sowat R18000 se voorraad gevlug.

Ahmed het gesê hulle is die afgelope twee weke telkemale gedreig en hy beskou die roof as ’n xenofobiese aanval.

Die eienaar van die huis waaruit die winkel bedryf word, het gesê sy is geskok. Volgens Weliswa Kama het sy gesien daar is ’n paar mense in die straat wat na kwaadstokers lyk. Sy is egter poskantoor toe en met haar terugkeer was die polisie reeds op die toneel.

Ao. Siphokazi Mawisa, Lingelethu-Wes se polisiewoordvoerder, het gesê niemand is nog in verband met die voorval aangekeer nie.

In ’n ander voorval, skaars ’n uur later, is ’n winkel in Harare beroof. Volgens konst. Nosiphiwo Mtengwane van die Harare-polisiekantoor het sewe mans die winkel binnegestorm. Die rowers het met 30 nuwe selfone gevlug.

Mtengwane het gesê hulle het een verdagte in hegtenis geneem.

Army 'not deployed for xenophobia'
YEA-YEA...WE ALREADY GOT ACCUSTOMED TO THE ANC STATE POLICE- LIKE THEIR HANDLERS- ALWAYS REVERT TO THE POWER OF "FLAT DENIAL." NOW WHY WOULD THE CORRUPT "POLICE" HAVE TO ANSWER ON ISSUES REGARDING THE "DEFENSE FORCE?"

Army 'not deployed for xenophobia'



2010-07-08 08:40



Johannesburg - The police denied on Thursday that the army was deployed to Ramaphosa informal settlement on Johannesburg's East Rand for fear of an outbreak of xenophobic attacks.

"It was normal crime prevention duties. There is no fear of anything," said Warrant Officer Andre de Jager.

He said the police and the SA National Defence Force (SANDF) had a joint crime prevention operation on Wednesday.

"We all met at Brakpan airfield. We had an operation within Brakpan and Boksburg. We were using one of the army helicopters and it was just visible policing in that area.

"We split up into two teams and some soldiers were dropped off at Reiger Park, but there was nothing happening."

Fears of xenophobic attacks

The Times newspaper reported on Thursday morning that the army moved into the area for fear of an outbreak of xenophobic attacks.

De Jager said no soldiers were deployed in the area on Thursday.

"It was only for yesterday [Wednesday]."

Vicious xenophobic attacks broke out at Ramaphosa settlement near Reiger Park two years ago.

In 2008, 62 people were killed and 150 000 displaced in a wave of xenophobic attacks that started in Gauteng.

An inter-ministerial committee on xenophobia was expected to brief the media on Thursday on a programme to deal with renewed threats of outbreaks of violence against foreigners.

Scores of foreigners have started packing for their home countries amid threats from locals that they would be attacked after the Soccer World Cup ended on Sunday.

Groups of youth 'behind xenophobia rumours'


July 08 2010 at 08:58AM

By Babalo Ndenze and Caryn Dolley

Small groups of unemployed youth are to blame for the xenophobia rumours, according to the ANC Youth League (ANCYL) in Khayelitsha, where a Zimbabwean was thrown off a moving train this week.
(YEAAAA....AND BEHIND THE "SMALL POCKETS OF YOUTHS"- STANDS THE "BIG POCKETS OF ANC KADRES" AND THEIR " ANCYL FAT YOUTHS"...WE KNOW...DON'T TELL US!)
These small groups apparently threaten foreign shopkeepers in the townships to extort food or money from them.

Andile Lili, ANCYL leader in Makhaza and chairman of the Harare Community Police Forum (CPF), said yesterday: "It's just a small grouping of young people looking for food or money (who are fuelling these rumours).

"We don't have xenophobia here, not today, not ever. But we have mechanisms (to deal with it) and when it happens we are ready."


He said the CPF had already met Somali businessmen who felt threatened. "They feel there are threats coming from these guys," Lili said.

On Wednesday, a small shop owned by Somalis in Khayelitsha was looted by what witnesses called "young kids" - some of them neighbours - who told them to "go back to their country". Abdur Ali, a Somalian who was at the shop during the looting, said he was not going anywhere - and wanted the government to intervene.

The ANCYL in Khayelitsha blamed both the government and the media for fuelling xenophobic rumours. "We're not happy with the government, which is exposing these rumours and inciting violence. There really aren't such rumours, it's only in the media. We also heard about this exodus of foreigners, but it doesn't exist in our area," said Lili.

PosOnderwerp: 'South Africans not xenophobic by nature'    Thu Jul 08, 2010 6:34 pm


July 08 2010 , 3:00:00



The Inter-Ministerial Committee, established by Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa to deal with xenophobia, has stressed that South Africans are not xenophobic by nature. The committee, which briefed the media in Pretoria, said this could be proved by the behaviour of citizens during the FIFA World Cup.

The committee has dismissed suggestions that scores of foreigners are leaving the country for fear of xenophobic attacks. Deputy Home Affairs Minister, Malusi Gigaba, says the largest number of people who have been leaving the country are from Lesotho and other Southern African Development Communities (SADC) and are mainly people who came to watch the World Cup.

Gigaba says they have established this by monitoring events through the Movement Control Centre and they have realised that no one has left the country in fear of xenophobic violence. Mthethwa has again issued a stern warning to anyone who plans to engage in xenophobic attacks, saying law enforcement agencies are on high alert.

On the other hand, the African National Congress Youth League in the Western Cape says criminal elements are exploiting reports of xenophobic attacks in the Peninsula after the FIFA World Cup. The alert was recently highlighted in an Amnesty International report following a visit to South Africa in March. The organisation said there were threats and pamphlets warning of xenophobic attacks.

Anti-xenophobia committee finalising post Cup plans
Written by defenceWeb Thursday, 01 July 2010 06:07

A Cabinet committee re-activated to address concerns about post-soccer World Cup xenophobic attacks on black foreigners will be meeting again this Tuesday, the police ministry says. The meeting comes as concerns mount of a recurrence of a two-week orgy of violence that left 62 people dead and 150 000 homeless in May 2008.

Police Ministry spokesman Zweli Mnisi says the interministerial committee for xenophobic violence set up by the cabinet early last month (June) and headed by Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa met shortly afterwards and will again meet next week to finalise plans to prevent another pogrom.

The committee includes the ministers of Home Affairs, Social Development, State Security, Basic Education, Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Arts and Culture as well as International Relations and Cooperation.

South African Human Rights Commission chairman Lawrence Mushwana meanwhile says his organisation has made recommendations on steps to deal with xenophobia and handed these over to law enforcement authorities. “We have listed the recommendations and we are meeting with the police as part of the recommendations,” said Mushwana.

In another development the Cape Times reported yesterday the South African Army had been deployed to back up police in Du Noon, Cape Town, on Tuesday in a joint anti-crime operation residents said had to do with persistent rumours of an outbreak of xenophobic violence after the World Cup. "At the moment, we cannot tell the public what the operation is about, but we can confirm that the Army has been deployed," national police spokeswoman Brigadier Sally de Beer said. Du Noon had been the epicentre of xenophobic violence in the Western Cape in 2008.

In a show of force, the army and police went into Du Noon with Casspirs and searched house-to-house, the paper said. Residents said they had been told the show of force was to demonstrate that the authorities would not stand for any xenophobic violence in the area or anywhere else in the country.

The deployment came as the Nelson Mandela Foundation said on Tuesday that it was concerned by the rumours of xenophobic violence. "We cannot blame other people for our troubles. We are not victims of the influx of foreign people into South Africa," Achmat Dangor, the CE of the foundation said.“We have seen South Africans united around a common support for African teams during the FIFA World Cup; we hope it will lead to greater appreciation by South Africans of our place on this continent and that we will sure greater solidarity with non-nationals,” added the foundation’s Sello Hatang.

Earlier police said two South African shop owners at Bloekombos were arrested on suspicion of instigating attacks on rival Somali shopkeepers in the informal settlement near Kraaifontein, which also bore the brunt of the 2008 xenophobic violence. Police spokesman Captain Andre Traut confirmed that the two men and three other suspects were arrested last week on three charges of attempted murder, two charges of arson and one charge of conspiracy to commit crimes. On Tuesday the Daily Voice reported that there was xenophobic violence in Bloekombos after four men were arrested. The suspects claimed they had been paid by local shop owners to attack the Somalis.

Cape Town mayoral committee member for Safety and Security councillor JP Smith said the provincial government was the lead agency against xenophobic violence and would take care of pre-emptive work in the Western Cape. "The city is ready to react. Attacking other people incurs costs and the city paid R147 million to house, feed and protect dispossessed people in 2008. We had to use rates money to cover those costs," Smith said.

Fear is also running high in Johannesburg, The Times and Eyewitness News reports.

Earlier this year the Consortium for Refugees and Migrants in South Africa released a press statement to voice concerns that "threats are mounting of further mass xenophobic violence once the event is over". A recent study at Wits University also warned of mass xenophobic attacks after the World Cup, while a Neil Higgs, a TNS Research Surveys researcher, said that poor service delivery could spark attacks. “The xenophobia is also about competition about scarce resources like houses, water, electricity and also potentially jobs,” he said in the Business Day.

The broadsheet added government spokesman Thabo Maseko said the Cabinet committee has been re-established as a “pro-active” attempt to deal with the rumoured xenophobic attacks. “We suspect that these ongoing service protests can lead to some attacks on foreign nationals,” he said. “There have been some unconfirmed reports that attacks might erupt after the World Cup. The IMC is an attempt to deal with the xenophobia that might erupt.”

“The Elders”, a group of 10 prominent global leaders that met in Johannesburg in May also voiced concern about the rumoured attacks. “I think everyone recognises that with having the World Cup in SA there are concerns,” said former Irish President Mary Robinson. "We are more worried after the World Cup, the possibilities of xenophobia... construction jobs fall away and people, especially from Zimbabwe, will be looking for jobs. "We hope it does not happen and I hope more job opportunities come."

TNS Research Surveys warned in May that current high levels of dissatisfaction with service delivery levels made violent protests a "certainty", the South African Press Association reported. The survey, conducted among 2000 residents of South Africa's metropolitan areas in February, found more than half (52%) were unhappy with the service delivery they received from their local authority or municipality. This was a very high figure and one indicating that "violence over a lack of service delivery is a certainty", the company said in a statement.

"Strike negotiators say that, when 30% or more of a work force are unhappy, there will almost certainly be strike or protest action. With levels of unhappiness over service delivery exceeding half the population, the likelihood of such protest action then becoming violent becomes highly probable," TNS said. A study conducted in 2007 showed dissatisfaction levels at 27%. That the levels of unhappiness had risen to 52% showed the problem of service delivery was now especially acute, SAPA added.

In addition, 51% said they had been waiting too long for basic services from their local authority or municipality. It was clear that all areas were well above the critical level of 30% unhappiness, with very serious flash-points likely in the East and West Rand and the Vaal Triangle/South Rand in Gauteng as well as in East London. Not surprisingly, blacks, in particular, were the most unhappy with service delivery levels - 54% unhappy and 58% said they had been waiting too long for basic services, SAPA said. Among the unemployed, 59% were unhappy about service delivery, and among those in squatter camps and informal settlements, the unhappiness level rose to 65%.

"Also, not surprisingly, it is the poorest of the poor who are the most unhappy, with as many as 80% of these people expressing unhappiness - a powder keg indeed." But even the most wealthy were unhappy (49%). This was most likely due to increasing power outages, water problems and billing issues.

Xenophobia fears are being taken seriously
July 08 2010 at 11:02PM

Security agencies are on high alert to ensure that xenophobic violence is quelled as quickly as possible, Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa said on Thursday.

"Our security agencies are prepared to effectively deal with violence against anyone, including foreign nationals," Mthethwa said at a press conference in Pretoria on xenophobic violence.

"We continue to monitor all and any threats. Should anything be found to be credible, measures will be implemented immediately to prevent any outbreak of violence."

Mthethwa said that an investigation had found that the scores of foreigners leaving Cape Town in the past few days were not going out of fear of xenophobic violence, but because they were seasonal workers.

"The people who planted this in the media did no investigation whatsoever," he said.

"We will resist this hysteria. We investigated this issue and the first thing we got is that we are dealing with seasonal workers."

Deputy Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba said his department was taking the rumours of xenophobic violence seriously.

"These rumours run the risk of eroding the victory we scored with the World Cup," he said.

"We will not allow that."

He said South Africa's ports of entry were extremely busy with foreigners leaving. He said that most of the people leaving were from Lesotho and Southern African Development Community countries, but this had nothing to do with xenophobic fears.

"There are no reports of people leaving out of fear for xenophobic violence," he said.

State Security Minister Siyabonga Cwele said a small group of instigators were fuelling the rumours of xenophobic violence.

"Those who are planning on breaking our law, will be dealt with by the law enforcement agencies."

Mthethwa said xenophobia had largely been caused by local business owners who felt that the prices of their goods were being undercut by foreigners.

He said the government had to look at gaps in legislation to ensure that all traders were treated "fairly".

"Trader by-laws need to be enacted as a matter of urgency for there to be a proper and fair environment for competition," he said.

Mthethwa said there had been a proliferation of businesses owned by foreign nationals in the townships and informal settlements across all provinces.

"Furthermore, there is a sharp increase in anti foreigner sentiment spreading from metropolitan cities and surrounding townships to smaller towns and rural areas across South Africa."

Mthethwa said tensions between owners of businesses owned by locals and foreign nationals had spawned an ugly element of "criminal involvement, exploitation and manipulation".

"In many instances criminals, aided and abetted by locals, particularly the youth, are given a licence by some locals to loot and pillage foreign businesses."

The perception among foreign shop owners is that law enforcement agencies fail to protect, he said.

"Thus, as a response, foreign owned business owners resort to defensive measures to prevent looting of their shops."

On Thursday evening, the defence department clarified reports the Army had been deployed to prevent possible xenophobic attacks.

"The force was not deployed for xenophobia. As part of World Cup measures, they were deployed with the police as part of the safety and security plan around stadiums," spokesperson Siphiwe Dlamini said.

"They conducted high-density operations to help ensure that the host cities and surrounding areas remain crime free."

Media reports linking this to xenophobia were "unfounded". - Sapa

Government anti-xenophobia plan: make foreigners toe the line, cite the World Cup

It is, quite frankly, not an awe-inspiring action plan. The revived high-powered Inter-Ministerial Committee on xenophobia says the best course is to remove the reasons for discontent in townships by making sure corner-cutting foreign spaza shops don't piss off locals, for example and make sure regular policing is up to scratch. Other than that, it believes the only real problem is a lack of education.

Government anti-xenophobia plan: make foreigners toe the line, cite the World Cup With persistent threats against foreign nationals in townships continuing, and some people leaving the communities where they have made their homes for fear of violence, you'd think decisive action would be called for. But those tasked with avoiding a repeat of the xenophobic attacks of 2008 say the problem isn't xenophobia but crime with an overlay of social discontent. Which seems to mean a minimum of special action is required.

We are ready for any criminal act by anybody, be they foreign nationals or South Africans, so if someone in whatever form thinks that he or she would break the law, the law enforcement agencies would be there, said police minister Nathi Mthethwa, who chairs the committee of ministers that was created after the 2008 attacks and recent reactivated.

The underlying message is that expectations of attacks on foreigners immediately after the World Cup are overblown, don't represent a crisis and can be handled without extraordinary measures. Any questions? Because whatever they are, the answer is World Cup. Should we take rumours of planned attacks seriously? Not really, no, because rumours that SA wasn't ready for the World Cup proved false. Are police capable of reacting quickly enough in case of an outbreak of violence? Yes, just look how well we policed the World Cup. Are investors being scared off by these rumours? No, because they saw how well SA handled the World Cup.

Despite strong evidence of deeper and more complex roots, the committee appears convinced that crimes of opportunity, youthful exuberance and a little jealousy are the only problems that Somalis in the Western Cape and Zimbabweans in Gauteng face. Part of the answer, therefore, is to make sure those wily Somalis pay their taxes.

Some of the tension arises as the result of some competition, particularly at that level where in the normal situation shopkeepers or spaza shop owners would be in competition with each other, but because it is happening with foreign nationals it becomes an issue, Mthethwa said.

How is it that those darned foreigners can sell everything cheaper? Because they use residential properties as shops, break municipal bylaws, fail to pay certain taxes, and otherwise cut corners. They also tend to keep cash about the place, making them soft targets. So the solution is to police them, make sure they comply with the rules that the locals have to abide by, and tada! problem solved.

That may seem somewhat naive, but is in line with the recommendations some civic organisations and social researchers made after the 2008 attacks. In communities living on or below the breadline, they argued, any perception of unfair advantage is a powder keg. By implication, if foreigners are seen to be more heavily policed by everyone from health inspectors to tax collectors, then at least one excuse for xenophobia would be removed.

Then, hopefully, it becomes a problem of education. The committee has promised an aggressive communications rollout to spread the word that, at Mthethwa puts it, your brother from another mother is still your brother. It has also promised to mitigate the risk posed by the unbalanced media reports which still instill fear about possible attacks. Especially reports by that filthy foreign media.

Next » 1 2 High-ranking politicans had become "peddlers of fear" over xenophobia, Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa said on Friday.

"We condemn and caution against this alarmist phobia by those who fuel these rumours," he said in what his ministry distributed as the text of a speech at a xenophobia summit in Khayelitsha.

"These are the people who prior to the 2010 Fifa World Cup embarked on the infamous smear campaign, saying there will be bloodbath in this country and that crime is spiralling out of control," he said.

"It becomes such a pity when those who claim to be leaders are supposed to discharge leadership and guidance to project a common cause, end up being the peddlers of fear and anxiety."

The minister's comments were aimed at "leaders who hold high positions in government and in society", his ministry said.

On Thursday Mthethwa dismissed as "hysteria" reports that foreigners were fleeing the Western Cape in anticipation of a backlash again them after the tournament.

He said an investigation showed that the scores of foreigners leaving the city in the past few days were seasonal workers returning home.

Head of the Western Cape's local government department Hildegarde Fast told reporters on Friday morning that police had assessed the threat of xenophobic violence in the province as "low".

"In their view there is a low level of threat," said Fast.

She would not indicate whether there had been a relative rise or decrease in the level of the risk in recent weeks as South Africa hosted the world's biggest sporting event.

Fast said Western Cape authorities had a reliable monitoring system and passed reports of any risk of community conflict to the police to investigate.

Mediators were also sent in to defuse tension, which generally arose from a battle for scarce resources.

"We are responding to the fact that there are increased reports. The province feels the main focus is on preventing anything from happening," she said.

"If one feels the level of threat is rising in a particular community, the police are committed to immediately deploying extra resources to have quite a visible presence."

The head of disaster management in Cape Town, Greg Pillay, said the city could not afford a repeat of the 2008 outbreak of xenophobia that made headlines around the world.

The crisis claimed 70 lives countrywide and cost Cape Town authorities some R200 million of which most was spent on providing shelter for foreigners.

"We learnt many lessons from 2008 and the emphasis definitely is really on pro-active actions; what can we do to reduce the risk.... From the city's side, we also have an early warning system," he said.

Fast said every disaster management district in the province had identified places of safety where foreigners under threat could be accommodated.

W Cape govt appoints experts to deal with xenophobia July 09 2010 , 4:40:00




The Western Cape government has appointed independent experts to develop measures to deal with xenophobic violence. Director of Human Rights Support, Sifiso Mbuyisa, says the experts will train community leaders to deal with a breakdown of trust between foreigners and locals.

It has been reported that foreigners living in the country have been fleeing because of fear that they will be attacked by locals after the World Cup ends on Sunday.

Speaking at an Anti-xenophobic Summit in Khayelitsha outside Cape Town, Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa says threats of xenophobic violence are just rumour-mongering. Mthethwa says the danger in such rumours is that it could lead to foreigners being harmed by people taking advantage of the situation.

But the South African Council of Churches (SACC) has warned that rumours about the xenophobic attacks should not be underestimated. The council earlier announced that a hotline, to be linked with the police in all nine provinces, would be established to counter any xenophobic attacks.

In Phillipi, Cape Town, community representatives have pledged their support to anti-xenophobia efforts. They were also speaking at the Anti-xenophobia summit. The summit is held to garner support against xenophobic violence. A large number of Somali nationals are also attending the summit.

The community spokesperson, Abbi Ahmed, says they fear that the rumours and threats about the violence against them may come true, but he says threats are made by a small group of young people who seem to take advantage of the situation. Ahmed also says he does not believe that the group has support in the greater community.

Local leaders in Durban have also assured foreign nationals living and working in the city centre that there will be no violence directed at them after the FIFA World Cup. The leaders held a meeting with representatives of several African countries promising to protect them.

Hotline for xenophobia
2010-07-09 14:39



Johannesburg - A hotline is expected to be launched on Monday to address xenophobic attacks, the SA Council of Churches announced on Friday.

This followed reported threats of xenophobic attacks after the World Cup.

The council said the threats were not based on rumours as stated by Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa on Thursday. ( I DO NOT THINK YOUR BELOVED ALIENS ARE GOING TO SWALLOW THIS CRAP EITHER- NATHI "AFFIRMATIVE" APPOINTMENT MTWATWA)

It criticised Mthethwa and other leaders who claimed that the threats were based on unfounded rumours.

The council gave as proof that the threats were not unfounded some Somalians who were recently attacked by a group of 15 people in Atteridgeville.

Cape Town - High-ranking politicians had become "peddlers of fear" over xenophobia, Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa said on Friday.

"We condemn and caution against this alarmist phobia by those who fuel these rumours," he said in what his ministry distributed as the text of a speech at a xenophobia summit in Khayelitsha.

"These are the people who, prior to the 2010 FIFA World Cup embarked on the infamous smear campaign, saying there will be bloodbath in this country and that crime is spiralling out of control," he said.

"It becomes such a pity when those who claim to be leaders are supposed to discharge leadership and guidance to project a common cause, end up being the peddlers of fear and anxiety."

The minister's comments were aimed at "leaders who hold high positions in government and in society", his ministry said.

On Thursday Mthethwa dismissed as "hysteria" reports that foreigners were fleeing the Western Cape in anticipation of a backlash against them after the tournament.

He said an investigation showed that the scores of foreigners leaving the city in the past few days were seasonal workers returning home.

Head of the Western Cape's local government department Hildegarde Fast told reporters on Friday morning that police had assessed the threat of xenophobic violence in the province as "low".

"In their view there is a low level of threat," said Fast.

Mediation

She would not indicate whether there had been a relative rise or decrease in the level of the risk in recent weeks as South Africa hosted the world's biggest sporting event.

Fast said Western Cape authorities had a reliable monitoring system and passed reports of any risk of community conflict to the police to investigate.

Mediators were also sent in to defuse tension, which generally arose from a battle for scarce resources.

"We are responding to the fact that there are increased reports. The province feels the main focus is on preventing anything from happening," she said.

"If one feels the level of threat is rising in a particular community, the police are committed to immediately deploying extra resources to have quite a visible presence."

The head of disaster management in Cape Town, Greg Pillay, said the city could not afford a repeat of the 2008 outbreak of xenophobia that made headlines around the world.

The crisis claimed 70 lives countrywide and cost Cape Town authorities about R200m most of which was spent on providing shelter for foreigners.

City ready

"We learnt many lessons from 2008 and the emphasis definitely is really on proactive actions; what can we do to reduce the risk.... From the city's side, we also have an early warning system," he said.

Fast said every disaster management district in the province had identified places of safety where foreigners under threat could be accommodated.

"That is the absolute fall-back position."

Rumours of a post World Cup outbreak of xenophobia have persisted since late May when a group of eminent global leaders called the "Elders" warned foreigners might be targeted after the event as jobs start becoming scarcer.

Former Ireland president Mary Robinson, a member of the group, said at the time: "We are more worried after the World Cup, the possibilities of xenophobia... construction jobs fall away and people, especially from Zimbabwe, will be looking for jobs."

But Fast said authorities saw no special reason why the risk of xenophobia would be greater after the tournament, and could not pinpoint the cause of rumours of imminent attacks.

"I would just be speculating if I said why there would be more rumours now than before the World Cup," she told reporters.
