Xenophobic riots rocked several cities in South Africa in May 2008, left dozens dead and thousands displaced. The victims of the mob were immigrants from other African countries like Moçambique, Zimbabwe, Malawi. You can read my article about this symptom of the unresolved social contradictions in the rainbow nation in Konkret 7/08 0r here as a pdf version. Furthermore, you can find my article about Jacob Zuma (Knacki oder Präsident) in Konkret 3/08 here.
