South Africans have no clue how to run street businesses, says caller

South Africa is recovering from weeks of recent violent xenophobic attacks.

President Cyril Ramaphosa has dispatched a team of special envoys to deliver messages of solidarity to several African countries.

Callers on the Eusebius McKasier Show open line express how they have been affected by the attacks of foreign nationals.

Dineo says she used to buy her children fruits on the street but now she is struggling because the street vendors have left.

We take it for granted that the small businesses in Joburg are run by foreign nationals. And we enjoyed those services.

Dineo, Caller

We didn't realise that if we were to chase them out, we as South Africans have no clue as to how to run those businesses or any idea who to go to or do the stocktaking.

Dineo, Caller
