We want to go back home
By Natasha Marrian, Sapa

"I want to go home." This is the appeal of a Zimbabwean woman who fought to prevent her little sister from being raped during xenophobic attacks last night.

Willet Sibanda who also has an eight-year-old daughter received blankets and clothes at the Alexandra police station this afternoon.

These possessions are all she has left after xenophobic violence broke out on Sunday and she fell victim to it last night.

Sibanda told how men she described as ?Zulus? from a hostel in Alexandra kicked down her door around 10pm and told her to leave everything behind and get out.

"They insulted us. They screamed, they shouted and said get out...they said leave everything. They demanded my cellphone and money...[they] touched me all over," she said.

Sibanda described how the group of men told her to stand behind a curtain because they wanted to rape her little sister.

She refused and fought and pleaded with them not to do so. "I said ?rather shoot us?."

After a while the men relented and allowed them to leave. They shouted at Sibanda and her sister to go back to Zimbabwe because they wanted her house and were tired of living in a hostel.

When the 28-year-old and her younger sister arrived at the police station they were told by officers that they would be taken to Doornfontein.

Sibanda, who is in South Africa illegally, said she did not want this but wanted to go home.

"I want to go back to my country, it?s not easy to stay in South Africa.

"Anywhere in South Africa, we are not safe...we came here for jobs and this is what we get," she said.

Sibanda and dozens of other foreigners who were displaced by the xenophobic attacks in the last two days remained at the police station seeking safety and shelter.

Gauteng Safety and Security MEC Firoz Cachalia remained locked in a meeting at the police station while aid workers continued to distribute blankets and clothes to the displaced people.

Since i came to South Africa i have been embarassed by being associated with amaZulu,they are one of the most shallow minded people you will ever meet,the few that are educated are very good people and treat us(the ndebele)as their kith and kin,because they understand the historical predicament of their long lost cousins(alienated by the shona and victimised by the south africans),but the bulk of them,the typical kwazulu Natal rural boy,they are usually taxi drivers and security guards,i know this will offend a lot of my fellw Mthwakazians ngobayou tend to look at them as the link to our heritage,our roots,kodwa ke,take it from me,i have spent time with these morons that we call our brothers,and mina for one,angifani labo laba,yebo i share a common ancestor with these iliterate fools kodwa that doesnt mean i have to tolereate being called"ikhalanga"when i know that i am not.
Phela dont be fooled into thinking ukuthi they are repentant ngento le abayiyenze e-Alexandra,hayi cha,they are crying for more "kwerekwere" blood.They accuse us of taking their jobs,their accomodation,and even their women.Ask anyone who has ever lived and worked in S.A,abantu bakithi bayasebenza(unfortunately abanye bangamasela),but you see the thing is,if you dont qualify for a professional job you have no option but to work e-restuarant,ku security or if ungumfazi as a maid,but there is a catch,not any Tom,Dick or Harry has the IQ,to work in the above mentioned jobs,phela you need to communicate in english with your superiors,khona e restuarant,worse,ngoba i menu ibhalwe nge silungu abangeke basi undertander omzala,so when they dont get employed because they are intellectually impaired,what do they do,they kill "amakhalanga".
If you ask me,they need to try their nonsense eHillbrow,kesibone ukuthi ba serious sho sho.

Ugly realities like the Alex xenophobic violence let alone are being sponsored by those little minded individuals who for the track of time have failed to realise the crisis in Zim. l hope Mbeki is a happy man after seeing such kind of poor black African man butchering a fellow defenseless Zimbabwean.The fact that 3m estimated Zimbabeans live in SA and clash between Foreigners and locals yield another scenario of more projected xenophobic violence in future, living those yielding power and policing powers with no action to take but celebrating such kind of diabolic action .25 May we are celebrating Africa day amid such kind of Mbeki sponsored xenophobic violence

Into emgimangalisayo yikuthi thina asibandlululi eminye imihlobo ebuya kwamanye amazwe. Babegcwele oBanda baseMalawi, baseZambia, Mozambique, kodwa angizange loma naglinye ilanga ngizwe abantu bekhala ngokuthi basithathela imisebenzi loma abafazi bethu. bebezikhombisela bakhonie babe ngabakhentana bethu sengelandaba. Even wona amaSA sawasiza ngesikhathi sabo somzabalazo.

Kufanana lalapha konakaCharlie. Angithi bayakhala khathesi ngamaPolish bathi ye basithathela izindlu zethu lemisebenzi yethu.Kodwa abanikazi bamakhampani bathi its bcoz these people are very hard working and doing jobs that the English themselves refuse to do. Bayakhohlwa ukuthi every year there are thousands of Brits emmigrating to other countries. They refuse to accept ukuthi as i memember ye Eu amPolish alemvumo yokubuya la and settle just like they can do the same in Poland if they wanted to. ASA abawaziyo angithi bathi lawo awafuni kusebenza?Vele kodwa kusukisela kudala besikhangelela phansi as if we are their poorer cousin! Sokukhathesi nje that we may be poorer but very educated.

Ya,kwaze kwanzima ukuba ngumZimbabwean,im sure it sounds like a story from a bad movie ma likufunda emaphepheni khonangapho kubo UK labo Canada,kodwa ill tell you ukuthi for thina esise goli yakhona leyo,the magnitude if this thing is bigger than we can even begin to express.If you are in public awusakhulumi, ngoba you fear ukuthi i-accent yakho bazavele bayizwe ukuthi ngeyakomgodoyi,and from then on,the only thing engakusiza yisiqubu,phela amazulu lawa ayahlanya straight!.
The ministers and MP's are busy condemning this thing on TV and in the newspapers,kodwa mina i wonder ukuthi kambe bathini behind closed doors?.There have been certain circles abathi bona into leyi was ochestrated by Buthelezi and his IFP,kodwa its not been confirmed and needless to say,its being whispered,no one has yet had the guts to ask Buthelezi.
Bathi siqeda abafazi lemisebenzi,nxa!,izinja ezingafundanga lezi,phela abafazi bakhona kuthwa balala phansi ngoba bengalala embhedeni lobaba bengamthelela umnyama,and you call those humans!?.
