Foreign-owned shops in Soweto were under siege on Wednesday as residents went on a looting spree in about six townships.

Residents in White City claimed that the looting was the community’s way of showing their anger at the attack in police officers in Johannesburg’s CBD over two weeks ago.

Tshepo Lehohla told the Sowetan that residents felt that they were being disrespected by foreign nationals.

Doing something under the pretence of something else.

What a BS excuse for wanting to go on a looting expedition.

Foreign-owned spaza shops in this file picture taken a year ago, were looted after allegations that they sold expired food products.
So they looted shops that apparently sold expired food because they didn't like them selling expired food. I wonder if they looked at the expiry date of the items that they stole. The reasons that they give for their Xenophobic behaviour takes the cake.

How about do your shopping elsewhere...

How long before the police arrived at this latest Xenophobic attack that was probably all over social media at the time.
