By Chanel September
The fatal shooting of two Somali shopkeepers by robbers in Khayelithsa this past weekend has sparked fears in the Somali community.
Somali’s in the area feel that they are being targeted by thugs, while government and the United Nations do little to help.
The estimated death toll in the province in the past month alone is between 14 and 25.
Nansh Mohamed a shopkeeper in Khayelithsha told the Cape Times that they fled war and came to a democratic South Africa, but that they are most targeted in the area.
