Dear South Africans, you killed this man just because he was Mozambican?

Dear South Africans, you take a life just because he doesn't share same nationality as you? Shame on you as a people (for not publicly condemning this) Shame on you as a country (for not putting a stop to it). Shame on your president (for not having said anything about this so far). Shame on your security forces for standing by and allowing this to happen. Shame on the Zulu King who started this with his careless utterances. Shame on the stupid uneducated hoodlums carrying out these attacks. Miserable, lazy f*cks who blame their failure in life on foreigners, as if if all foreigners left, their lives would be better or they would be able to make a difference in their country.
