Somali owned spaza Foreign owned shops looted, burnt in Duduza

The Ekurhuleni metro has condemned the violence in Duduza during which dozens of foreign-owned shops were looted and burnt.

Ekurhuleni metro spokesperson Sam Modiba yesterday said police and ward councillors were working closely to restore the situation to normality.

“Residents should refrain from taking the law into their own hands and allow police to carry out their duties,” said Modiba.

The rioting came after a 23-year-old man was shot by a Somali national after being sold a used mobile airtime voucher.

“The family of the shot victim has confirmed he is recovering well in hospital.”

Police were continuing to monitor the situation.
