As we speak there’s another standoff in Sunnyside.

Police have arrested 136 people in the last 24 hours as tension between foreign nationals and South Africans in Gauteng intensifies.

They used rubber bullets and stun grenades, shooting at a crowd of about 200 immigrants who were running along Eskia Mphahlele Drive in Pretoria.

CapeTalk’s John Maytham interviewed EWN’s Barry Bateman.
