XENOHOBIA:JOHANESBURG, parts closed today as stick, panga wielding men, , march and protest calling for African migrants to leave the city

Businesses in parts of the Johannesburg city centre and surrounding areas have shut their doors as a group of men, believed to be mostly hostel dwellers from Jeppestown, march and protest on Sunday afternoon.
Some of the men are armed with sticks and pangas. It’s understood they are calling for African migrants to leave the city.
It’s understood the men who marched to the city centre are the same group who disrupted a gathering which was being addressed by Inkatha Freedom Party President Emeritus Mangosuthu Buthelezi on Sunday morning.
Buthulezi went to Murray Park, which is on the corner of Jules and Berg streets in Jeppestown, to speak to around “1200” George Goch, Denver and hostel residents following a week of xenophobic violence and looting.
Gauteng police spokesperson Brigadier Mathapelo Peters, in a statement, said a splinter group “disrupted the address and left before proceedings were concluded”.
Peters confirmed that a number of businesses and shops were attacked and damaged as the group marched through the city.
“Incidents of attacks on businesses have since been reporte in parts of the CBD where police fired stun grenades and rubber bullets to restrain the growing crowd who attempted to move through the CBD via corner Bree and Twist Streets,” said the brigadier in her statement.
