Right to Know calling for the army in Thembilihle to be pulled out

The 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 the area.

R2K’s 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 nationals.

Reid 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.

“So 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.
