The Deputy of the Patriotic Alliance Kenny Kunene (pictured above) was asked if their approach was appropriate last week of going into shops owned by foreigners looking for expired food items . He responded by stating that it was a good approach as it was not violent .He went on and said that they were illegal immigrants , and not only undocumented immigrants .

When the members of Patriotic Alliance went into the foreign-owned shops , they were allegedly requested to present documents proving that they were in South Africa legally .Kenny claimed that some of the food stuff that they sold was expired , with some of the food allegedly having expired four years back .

He went on and claimed that his party was enforcing the South African law .Mr Kenny went on and alleged that the health officials were doing nothing regarding the shops owned by Somalian and Pakistan nationals .He went on and claimed that the foreign nationals divided the shop with where they slept .

He said that one side of the shop was for groceries while the other side was the bedroom . It was claimed by Mr Kunene that even though these concerns were made known on social media , there was no response from the department of Home Affairs , the health department and the police .As a result of lack of action , he said that they took it into their hands to protect the residents .
