Displaced foreigners camp at Durban City Hall demanding help

A group of Congolese displaced people have been left homeless after they were evicted from a local street shelter and have now sought refuge at the Durban City Hall.

Some foreigners moved to the city hall, where they demanded a proper campsite and food, while others went to the old SPCA building in Cato Manor. However, contract workers demolishing the building threatened them with hammers and other weapons.
