Armed South Africans protesting, singing “Foreigners must leave” (Video)


In a fresh protest, armed South Africans have taken to the streets protesting against foreigners in their country, asking them to leave.

In a recent video posted by SowetanLive, armed South Africans carrying different weapons can be seen protesting against foreigners in eastern Johannesburg.

The protesters who are reportedly from various hostels in eastern Johannesburg were matching along Jules Street carrying different weapons and singing “foreigners must go back to where they came from.” 

They were waiting to be addressed by Mangosuthu Buthelezi, a notable politician and Zulu tribe leader.

Buthelezi begged the crowd, to calm down as the xenophobic attacks had already set South Africa into a path to isolation. “I’m not here to judge but to mediate,” Buthelezi, the former leader of IFP who stepped down just last month, said.

The video was shared with caption;
