Tensions are high in Johannesburg CBD as violence continues to spread into other parts of Gauteng.
In just a week, more than 400 people have been arrested for looting during xenophobia-related violence.
Two more people were also killed in separate attacks on Sunday in Malvern and Hillbrow.
Eusebius McKaiser says these are acts of afro-hatred and not just xenophobia.
Criminality by South Africans motivated in part by afro-hatred, that is what it is. Not xenophobia because xenophobia is too general for my liking. We don't have this hatred against people from Europe, Asia, America or Canada.— Eusebius McKaiser, Show host
I don't like the word phobia because technically it means fear. We don't fear fellow Africans, we hate them and we are lashing out at them. I also think technically Afrophobia is inaccurate.— Eusebius McKaiser, Show host
But it is part of the motivation because it is a complex phenomenon that is fuelled not only by hatred because hatred is often a symptom of other things going on in the background such as economic marginalisation of millions of poor South Africans.— Eusebius McKaiser, Show host
