WITNESS: Somali National killed in South Africa
A Somali citizen was killed in South Africa’s Pretoria city by alleged anti-migrant armed gangs who are targeting non-South Africans who run business in their country.
The murder of the Somali national was the latest in series of attacks against Somali community in South Africa, according to a witness who spoke to Radio Shabelle over the phone.
The witness who spoke on condition of anonymity said the slain Somali man was killed in his business centre in Pretoria after he has been attached by South African gangs armed with machetes.
The South African government was accused of failing to tackle to increasing and frequent attacks against Somali community in its country. Somali embassy in South African turned a blind eye to the crises.
