Right to Know has called on President Jacob Zuma to pull out the army in
Thembilihle on the basis that there were no reports of xenophobic attacks in
Coordinator Julie Reid said latest reports from comrades in Thembelihle are that
180 people have been arrested and that the vast majority of them are foreign
said it is our understanding that the army was deployed in Gauteng to quell the
xenophobic attacks but there have been no attacks on foreign-nationals Thembelihle
in the past few months.
there is really no justification for using the army to go into Thembelihle. We really
feel as if this community is being targeted now for political purposes and this
has very little to do with any sort of criminal elements in the area, as being
reported by the police” Reid added.
