It is going down once again in South Africa and it seems like there is no stop to violent actions in this country.

News surfaced this afternoon that Somalians have burnt down several taxis in Eastern Cape after a taxi driver allegedly bumped a Somalian.

Watch here;

Somalians were also spotted carrying guns around the same area and this seems like there is a huge altercation.

Police vehicles have also been spotted around the area.

Is this another form of xenophobia?

South Africa is known to have experienced different counts of xenophobic attacks in the previous years and it seems like we might be heading to similar situations.


There is a great need of ensuring that we come together as Africans without looking at who comes from which country.

Situations like these should be resolved without such violent actions.

Taxi drivers are also known to be violent to some extent and the situation in Eastern Cape could end up escalating if it is not controlled.

We have witnessed very violent xenophobic attacks in South Africa whereby people end up losing their lives and some people losing their businesses.

There are people who lost their lives in incidences that took place in Phoenix and most families are still struggling to accept the whole events that took place during that time.

Most people highlighted the Phoenix massacre as 'racial tension due to the elements of the types of events that took place.

Is this another form of racial tension that is happening in the Eastern Cape?
