Zimbabwean Truck Drivers Loses All Belongings In S.A. Xenophobic Attack

A Zimbabwean truck driver working in South Africa lost all his property after a group of local thugs (Umzansi Wethu) ransacked his rented home in Jeppestown near Johannesburg during the recent upsurge in xenophobic attacks.

In an interview with VOA News, 45-year-old Emmanual Manyere said that he is now considering going back home. He said:

… They attacked Jeppestown where I’m staying. They managed to break into the house and they took whatever they wanted and they burnt everything, things like (my) refrigerator, radio, tv (television) and when I came from work I found nothing.

Right now I’m left with the clothes I was putting on that day. At the moment I haven’t gone back to work because I don’t even have (decent) clothes.

… As I’m talking to you right now I haven’t been going to work for one week and here in South Africa as a foreigner if you don’t go to work you don’t get paid and you can’t go to work with rubbish clothes.

So, I need to raise some money to buy some (the company) uniform that was burnt.

My situation is bad … And I don’t know, I don’t know what I will do next. It’s really bad.

All of them are saying come back home father, come back baba, come back but as Africans, you can’t get back home without something (for your family). If I can raise some money, I’m thinking of going back home. I’m so traumatized.
