He says a trailer was torched over night and several shops belonging to foreigners were looted.

Residents are demanding the immediate resignation of Premier Supra Mahumapelo.

They rexpressed their dissatisfaction with the premier.

“We have been this way because we do not want Supra Mahumapelo. He is corrupt. He is taking everything for himself,” says one resident.

Another resident says: “We want him gone. We do not want Supra Mahumapelo. We don’t have services while he is busy eating with the Guptas. He must go.”
