Farmlands just outside our hometown, Marquard, South Africa
As with any type of revolt situation and ensuing chaos, the rumours abound, the tabloids have a field day and ultimately no-one actually knows what originally started the "war".
However, in South Africa overcrowded townships situated on the outer borders of rural towns, are hotbeds of discontent, frustration and disappointment exacerbated by poverty and misery. Apart from lack of decent housing, power and water supplies, there are foreigners operating businesses inside the townships making trade difficult for local entrepreneurs. So not only is the gripe about almost non-existent amenities and services but the attacks are of a xenophobic nature as well. You can read more about this here.
Of course, the innocent are always caught in the cross - fire.
Apparently the people have been allowed to return to work so hopefully things will soon revert to normal.
Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend.
