VIDEO: South Africans Want Foreigners To Leave
South Africans have disrupted a speech in Johannesburg by a veteran politician, Mangosuthu Buthelez, who was trying to quell tensions following a recent wave of deadly riots and xenophobic attacks.
Buthelez, a Zulu leader during apartheid and former leader of South Africa’s opposition Inkatha Freedom Party, was heckled yesterday by a rowdy section of the crowd, who then walked away to join dozen others carrying sticks and clubs to march down the streets of Johannesburg singing “foreigners must go back to where they came from”.

While mobs began looting foreign-owned shops and torching foreigners’ vehicles on Monday last week, SA Police by Thursday said they had arrested more than 420 people and the unrest had subsided.
