Reports have it that  over the weekend at least 15 houses either belonging or rented by immigrants, especially Nigerians, have been burnt by angry residents in Rosettenville, South of Johannesburg.

The residents are reported to be angry that foreign nationals had turned the neighbourhood into a drug haven. They are mad because under aged children now have access to drugs and they come home high all the time.

According to Africa Review, some shops belonging to foreign nationals in the area were also looted during the incident.

South African residents in the area claim Nigerians had illegally taken over most properties and turned them into drug and prostitution dens and nobody is doing anything to stop them.
