The newspaper also revealed that Siphiwe Mhlongo, chairman of hostel headmen (izinduna) in Gauteng, said people in the country are angry that their jobs are being taken by foreign nationals.

“Everyone who is in South Africa has that feeling that foreign nationals must go back home. But we don’t say foreign nationals must be beaten up; we are leaders,” he said.
