Callers on the Eusebius McKaiser Show express how they are affected by the xenophobic attacks.

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

Dineo, Caller
