A fresh round of violence is currently building up in the streets of Johannesburg as armed protesters have hit the streets, demanding that foreigners should return to where they came from.

 

According to Sowetan Live, a South African newspaper, the protesters, who carried weapons such as knobkerries, are waiting to be addressed by Mangosuthu Buthelezi, a notable politician and Zulu tribe leader.  This is coming one week after attacks on foreigners sparked reactions across the continent.  Nigeria, Rwanda and Malawi had pulled out of the World Economic Forum which held in South Africa while Zambia cancelled an international friendly match with South Africa over the violence against foreigners.
