About 70 people have been arrested in Johannesburg’s Central Business District (CBD) earlier on Monday, plundering shops and torching cars and buildings in South Africa due to the recent Xenophobic attack.
The unrest started on Sunday when an old building in the CBD caught fire and collapsed, killing at least three people.
It then spread to two eastern suburbs and to the capital Pretoria, where local media reported shops burning in the Marabastad, a central business area largely populated by economic migrants.
Many African artistes have reacted to it and the recent one is talented Nigerian singer and former member of P square music group, Paul Okoye.
According to him, Xenophobia is on the rise in most African countries, especially South Africa which is really bad and serious one as well.
He took to twitter to console his brothers and sister living in South Africa today, 3rd September, 2019.
He wrote: “Dear Nigerian government, what ever is happening in South Africa 🇿🇦 is a very serious matter, before is too late 🙏 I know my naija people🇳🇬… God help us all 🙏💔”
