I am somewhat suspicious of this move by the South African government.
I have heard and read that the violence in Jo'burg and other areas (mainly in Gauteng province) are being caused by anti-immigrant feelings.
However could this be a slick move by the South African government to draw out any illegal immigrants? Millions have been jumping the border from
Zimbabwe and it seems like such a massive influx of immigrants would destabilise the job market for the lower paid South Africans.
I wonder if this is a move by people against illegal immigrants; or has it been instigated by the ANC via agent provocateurs?
At any rate, the base concern I have is why are these people being rounded up into camps? What if the camps are assaulted by the rioters? All the
immigrants would be in one place at the same time- ostensibly leading to a massacre.
Is that the real intention of the ANC? After all, it wouldn't be the first time that the ANC has used violence... it was at one point a declared
terrorist organisation with Nelson Mandela its leader.
