Somalia: Somali businessmen murdered in South AfricaArmed South African gangs have shot and killed two Somali businessmen based in a southeast coast town, fellow colleagues have said.
Witnesses told the media that the businessmen, Abdi Amir and Aden Abdiwahab, were killed on Tuesday night in two separate incidents in East London city while they were in their business centres.
‘’Both of them were very prominent and had been actively involved in business activities,’’ said one of their colleagues.
The murder is the latest in a number of attacks on Somali immigrants in South Africa. Police arrived at the scene after the armed gangs fled and no one has been arrested.
Somali Community in the country has accused the government for not taking actions on the killings, which have been continuously occurring.
The South African government has also pushed the violence against foreigners as a result of criminality and not xenophobia.
