Xenophobia or criminality?

We explore the recent incidents of looting and violence against foreign shop owners in Johannesburg on this episode of Law Focus.

Sally Peberdy from the Gauteng City-Region Observatory presents their research on traders, after which Mr Mojalefa Mohoto from the Department of Small Business Development gives us insight into their stance and policies on the issue.

Community leaders from Alexandra give us their views, before Kayan Leung from Lawyers for Human Rights explains the criminal aspects of the looting.
