Zim Driver Battles For Life After Fresh Xenophobic Attacks In SA

A Zimbabwean truck driver Mr Tineyi Takawira is battling for life at King Edward Hospital in Durban, KwaZulu Natal province in South Africa after he was stabbed in suspected fresh xenophobic attacks in the neighbouring country.

More than 100 foreigners, among them Zimbabweans, were forced to flee their homes and seek refuge at Sydenham Police Station. Zimbabwe’s Consul General to South Africa, Mr Batiraishe Mukonoweshuro yesterday confirmed Takawira’s incident. Said Mukonoweshuro:

I can confirm that Tineyi Takawira, a Zimbabwean truck driver is admitted to King Edward Hospital in Durban after he was attacked by protesters in Durban’s Springfield Park informal settlement.The protesters barricaded roads and intercepted truck drivers demanding to see their identity documents and those found to be foreigners were attacked.

Mukonoweshuro said a Zimbabwean woman married to a Malawian truck driver was among the people who fled to the police station after she was attacked and badly injured. He said he does not know the exact number of Zimbabweans who were attacked. He said they are working with police and relevant authorities in South Africa.

  1. we must unite as Southern Africans and fast track the Economic revival of our nations away from the control of Xenophobic South Africa. its high time we resorted to the original mandate of SADC . 1994 saw us admitting the last member SA into our SADC union- this was a mistake , im sure we all see this now. we already have well developed ports in Namibia, Angola and Mozambique , even Tanganyika is a viable option too. plus reliable road links as well.
