Armed protesters have currently taken to the streets of South Africa to violently demand that foreigners return to where they came from.

A South African newspaper, Sowetan Live reports that the protesters, who carried weapons such as knobkerries, are waiting to be addressed by Mangosuthu Buthelezi, a notable politician and Zulu tribe leader.

This is coming one week after attacks on foreigners sparked reactions across the continent.

Nigeria, Rwanda and Malawi had pulled out of the World Economic Forum which held in South Africa, in a bid to register their displeasure over the attacks.

Zambia also cancelled an international friendly match with South Africa over the violence against foreigners.
