SA vehicles attacked in Mozambique

via SA vehicles attacked in Mozambique – New Zimbabwe 17/04/2015

THERE have been several reports of South African vehicles being attacked near Ressano Garcia in Mozambique on Friday, says a company that manages the road linking the two countries.

Trans African Concessions (Trac) N4 spokesperson Solange Soares-Nicolson said she could not comment on reports that the Lebombo border in Mpumalanga had been closed.

“We [only] manage the N4 route which runs through the border. There have been reports that protesters about four kilometres from Ressano Garcia [at the border] were attacking South African registered vehicles,” she said.

“We have dispatched our team there to keep us posted. We are advising road users to avoid the area at this stage.”

Mpumalanga police could not be immediately reached to confirm the border’s closure.

The Corridor Gazette reported that all vehicles had been stopped from crossing the post for their own safety after about 200 Mozambicans barricaded the N4 in Mozambique.

It could not be immediately established whether the alleged attacks were in retaliation to recent xenophobic violence that flared up in Durban, Pietermaritzburg and parts of Johannesburg and left five people dead and scores injured and displaced.

    “THERE have been several reports of South African vehicles being attacked near Ressano Garcia in Mozambique on Friday” says a company that manages the road linking the two countries.

    Assuming the above is true, then: Thumbs up to the Moza’s. Certainly, this is the kind of reaction which South Africans must face across Africa.

    They have made their point clear time & again -especially their current president, his family members & a number of other ANC leaders.

    According their utterances, they are not Africans.They arejust in Africa by default, but in reality they belong elsewhere – where only Zuma, his family members & like-minded ANC-people know.

    Remember, when Zuma declared that SA was not some other African country, such as Malawi; then recently Zuma’s own son inciting violence against African foreigners (not foreigners from other continents, of course); then the ‘famous’ Zulu king adding his voice to same sentiments & immediately igniting the on-going mass-torturing & killing of African foreigners; & of course, the glaring selective application of the law by police – where we now have more African foreigners (who are the victims) in police cells than locals (the perpetrators of violence). Nxaaaaa. shaaammmmmeee.
