Gov't gives Kenyans in South Africa next directive after Xenophobic attacks

Kenya's High Commissioner to South Africa Jean Kamau has asked Kenyans to report attack incidents to the police.

On Wednesday Ambassador Kamau confirmed that several Kenyans had been attacked in Gauteng Province.

On Monday the xenophobic attacks in South Africa started again where business owned by foreigners were looted and torched by locals.

Violence break outs

Police in S.A reported they had arrested at least 70 people after crowds of hundreds marched through Johannesburg's Central Business District (CBD) plundering shops and torching cars and buildings,

President Cyril Ramaphosa vowed to clamp down on what he termed as "acts of wanton violence."

Such violence breaks out sporadically in South Africa, where many nationals blame immigrants for high unemployment, particularly in manual labour.

Police Minister Bheki Cele insisted recent violence was linked to "criminality" rather than "xenophobia".
