    I don't know if this is xenophobia or a robbery, whatever it is it's wrong, look how brazen these murderers are, they obviously know they are being filmed but they don't care, the majority of black South Africans are not killing foreign nationals because they believe foreigners are taking their jobs, since apartheid ended there had been no rush of black South Africans seeking employment……the poorer black South Africans don't want jobs or an education they would rather steal and murder to pay for their drug habits, they would rather inject the blood from a used syringe that their friends have just used because they trust their friends (which shows the mentality of these fools) into their already fucked up veins running the risk of AIDS and HIV ……black South Africans are every bit as racist as the whites that oppressed them during the years of apartheid in fact they are worse; protesting and burning down businesses destroying their own chances of acquiring employment ( even if it is low payed it's better than nothing) but no it's easier to go around in gangs intimidating innocent people…….When you try and listen to them or understand them you will be told you are a white racist because they tar everyone with the same brush ……….they see themselves as Warriors but they are not they are criminals they are ignorant and still tribal and cannot deal with the truth,…….to give an opinion is not racial it's called free speak ………..black South Africans are just spitting out the same old nonsense blaming the foreigners for all their problems ……foreigners are bringing businesses to South Africa in time those businesses could grow bringing prosperity and growth and employment……blame your own government for your countries economic failings……take your protests to your government.

    South Africa must realize there's no way on earth are they moving forward economically if they are entertaining animosity against the biggest potential economic power in Africa.If they however think they can bully Nigeria in Africa,they are making a big mistake! when you stoke the fire of nationalism at a time the country's in dire situation and begging for a reason to go haywire….Don't give the Nigerian government a reason to divert attention from the real issues on the ground….i mean this could mean running over that bitch with 10 million angry men just in time for Christmas or opportunists taking advantage and opening a few BOKO HARAM recuitment centers.The options are endless !!!

    South Africa is a Shit Hole. We Africans should not have helped them fight apartheid. Today it's Africans. tomorrow it will be Chinese, then Indians.

    Should be clear that the problem of unemployment or poor education, if the South African government can not govern this country, then it is too sad, the idea of Africa's problems of poverty and education, neighboring countries can only go to South Africa to work, then that is regional economic disparities problem, the South African government should restrict immigration and to improve their education and employment of the poor. Overall the South African government's ability to govern bad.South Africa is rich in resources, as long as people are hardworking, and improve the quality of education, reduce government corruption, these problems can easily be solved, such as South Africa's development is really regrettable.  South Africa has the knowledge and vision hope people can see it.Poverty is the root of the problem, there are a lot of resources in South Africa, as long as a good use, and increase investment in education, it is easy to develop the economy,  government incompetence.

    Both the Anglicans as well as the Afrikaners should leave the nation for some ten years, and leave the place for Mandela's people to run the show. Within ten years, the people will get their senses back.

    RIP and God Bless Emmanuel and God Bless this man for trying to help him.

    If South Africa has to deploy the army to Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town to maintain peace, order and prevent unnecessary killings like this, then they should do that.

    I could not stand by as 3 men with weapons attempted to take the life of another. It would scar my soul if I did.
