MAROBJANE - Yesterday, an unidentified number of robbers were caught and beaten to a pulp by community members after robbing a spaza shop belonging to foreign national in Makgoai at Avon Marobjane under the Blouberg local Municipality. There's a lot of controversy surrounding this issue, some people are condoning this behavior and saying that as long as they are stealing from foreigners its fine. They did not expect the community members to fight for a foreigner, they wanted the community to let the perpetrators get away with crime.
Crime is crime, whether its being committed by a citizen to a foreigner. If someone can have the courage to take something that doesn't belong to him or her then there's no need to protect that person. Such people are the first to run when there's a looting spree, they break into people's houses without thinking twice. The community members benefit from this business that is the reason they are protecting it.
