The scene inMogale City,Krugersdorp yesterday can only be described as chaos and violence. Roads were blocked off with rocks and burning tyres as the community protested crime, drugs and human trafficking in the area – as well as the lack of action made by the police on these matters.

Members of the community handed out flyers last week calling for members of the community to come together for the protest.

As the protest began to spiral out of control, police used rubber bullets and tear gas to contain the crowd as they set the Munsienville Police Station alight. The protesters didn't stop at the police station, torching three houses believed to be drug dens, and then moving onto torching a police vehicle.

The protest blocked taxi's from getting to the area, preventing people from travelling to work. A number of protesters have been arrested and Journalists have been warned to avoid the area as protesters have threatened to attack them. Schools were evacuated and the children moved to a safer area.

The attacks were focused on Nigerians who are believed to be involved in drug trades in the area. Protesters have demanded that police force foreign nationals to leave their neighbourhood. The xenophobic attacks moved to looting supermarkets in the area and protesters continued to fight back against police by throwing stones.

The community members claimed that they won't rest until the undocumented migrants leave the area.
