    Send the five Mozambicans back to their country an lock the South Africans up or send them also to Mozambique. To many foreigners are causing to many problems in SA.

      I couldn't agree with you more. When the citizens are fed up and want to take action it is quickly referred to as xenophobia and we are then reminded about Ubuntu. I think Ubuntu should maybe be regulated in some way as it is now simply received by outside criminals as a free pass to violate the citizens of south africa's basic human rights.
