South Africa is boiling with rage after some looters renewed their xenophobic attacks on strangers, especially Nigerians.
According to Eazi, South Africans are fighting the wrong enemy because the real enemy is rather poverty.

According to africanews.com, police in South Africa have been overwhelmed by looters in the final round of xenophobic attacks by residents of Jappestown, an area close to the commercial hub, Johannesburg.
Several local media reported that unrestrained looting of stores and the burning of buildings were registered in the riots. The portals add that looters have focused on foreigners.
Elsewhere, rioters have blocked roads and burnt tires that obstruct the movement of people and vehicles. The police are caught in ongoing battles with them in parts of Johannesburg.
A police statement confirmed the situation and said forty-one people were arrested after the incidents. The police also shot rubber bullets at looters in another suburb of Johannesburg, Turffontein.
According to police, the chaotic collisions followed the death of three people in a fire in an “old building”.
“While we were still investigating emergency services, people in the neighborhood began to take advantage of the situation and plunder stores,” said police spokesperson Capt Mavela Masondo.
