Foreign street vendors are accusing the police of trying to hide a xenophobic attack on foreign street vendors by a group of Zulu-speaking people at the flea market on Soldiers Way in Durban on Sunday.

The victims say the attackers called themselves members of Mkhonto WeSizwe Military Veterans Association.

The attack did not garner much media attention because both the eThekwini Metro Police and the provincial South African Police Service denied there was any attack. People who spoke to The Witness said police officers saw the attack.
