South Africans Start Campaign to Stop Patronizing Somalian Spaza Shops.

The existing tension between local citizens and foreigners who have virtually occupied different job opportunities is growing as the day goes by.

What we saw in Port Elizabeth two days back is a pointer that ethnic tension needs to be addressed across different communities in South Africa.

You would recall that a South African taxi driver knocked down a Somalian man while he was walking. Somalian community in Port Elizabeth rampaged different streets across the city and also burnt down taxi companies including their buses.

This has led to a serious outcry from the people of South Africa who are still waiting for the government to take drastic action.

Meanwhile, some locals are beginning to demand for an end to patronizing Somalian Spaza shop Owners as a way to register their displeasure over the attitude of Somalians few days ago.

This are some of the messages from citizens on Twitter below:

PutSouthAfricFirst: "I know of various Spaza groups who are willing to take on the Somalis,similar business model and yet South Africans.We'll be raising funds to support their initiatives.Yes,we can survive without foreigners!!"

Zandile Excel: "South Africans we need to agree that we will stop buying from these Somalians"

Dee: "We open our own spaza shops. Support your own stop supporting somalians"

Zulu: "Around Kwadukuza there's a township called eTete, you will find not even 1 single shop owned by somalians. It kasi people who run the spaza shops, somalians bathelwa induku befika n where told not to operate there"
