Xenophobia: “We were treated like animals being slaughtered”

In the wake of the wave of xenophobic violence Sonke’s Gadeeja Abbas tells the story of Lionnel Drench who fled the conflict in Congo Brazzaville. But his pain and suffering continued in Cape Town. He opened up about the murder of his brother – Massiossio Souka Hoven Romeld – on February 25. Drench was attacked on that day too and claimed the criminals did not even demand their cellphones, jewellery or money. He said they were treated like animals being slaughtered.
