A 28-year-old Zambian man has been stoned to death, allegedly by taxi and bus drivers, in South Africa.

Rabson Zulu was stabbed with a knife, before being stoned to death, together with Four other foreign nationals.

The incident happened over the weekend in Klerksdorp town – North West province.

This is according to a statement availed to ZNBC news today by First Secretary for Press at the Zambian High commission in South Africa, Naomi Nyawali.

Ms Nyawali.says Mr. Zulu was attacked in a case of alleged mistaken identity at a tuck shop, located in Pinasdorp area, where he had gone to buy washing powder to clean the car he was using.

It is alleged that the enraged mob of taxi and minibus drivers, together with local people, wanted to carry out a revenge attack on an identified foreign national of West African origin.

The targeted West African had allegedly killed one of the taxi drivers, who was accused of having raped his employee.

And Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa, Emmanuel Mwamba has called on the South African police to carry out thorough investigations to ensure Mr. Zulu’s murderers face justice.

This killing comes barely few weeks after another Zambian national, Kenneth Sikopo was shot dead in Germiston town in South Africa.

    There is patriotism and SOuth AFricans dont want Zambians.

    SOuth Africans are RIGJHT,m its their country

    All Zambians must go back to their own country.

    Why develop another African country anyway?

    If you are NOT in Europe, USA or Australia just go back to Zambia, which is a better country now anyway.

    Saying that thoughts are with the family of the deceased. MHSRIP

    South Africans are nice people generally – Go back to your countries and they are RIGHT, are the south Africans.

    Thanks

    • The way those South Africans kill is so barbaric.
      I know it’s hard to leave a country, but some PF government can do something, close that Embassy. Close it!
      Emmanuel can take vacant jobs as Information minister or that job of Amos Chanda, I don’t know what it is.

    • I agree with Nostradamus! Shut down that mission and any other similar one and use the savings to repatriate poor Zambians from SA.

      How can a whole High Commission just be reporting about deaths of its nationals and thereafter only appealing to police to carry out thorough investigations? …

    • @1.3,14 Nost and @1.5 Nshimbi so you want ZAMBIA THROUGH THE HIGH COMMISSION TO START RUNNING AN INVESTIGATION ON BEHALF OF S.AFRICAN POLICE?? HIS JOB IS TO ENGAGE WITH S.AFRICAN GOVT AT HIGH LEVEL AND GET THEIR COOPERATION TO BRING THE CULPRITS TO JUSTICE!! Your emotions seem to miss the bigger picture as to why Governments world over establish Diplomatic Relations with others and benefits that accrue to countries through such establishments!! YOU MAY NOT LIKE MWAMBA BUT I BELIEVE HE DOES HIS JOB QUITE WELL COMPARED TO OTHER DIPLOMATS YOU JUST SIT IN OFFICES!!

    • And Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa, Emmanuel Mwamba has called on the South African police to carry out thorough investigations to ensure Mr. Zulu’s murderers face justice.
      Since when have these appeals been heeded? Its a waste of time issuing them cos I have never heard of any succesfull investigation of any murdered Zambian in South Africa

    • The South African blacks suffer from PTSD after the apartheid experience. Remember, these are people who were in a sense locked up within their country’s borders and knew very little about other African countries. So when apartheid fell, they didn’t really know how to relate to other black Africans from the surrounding countries— and have very little knowledge about other African countries. They also believe that there’s no other country in Africa like South Africa, and that everyone in Africa desperately wants to move to South Africa. They hardly travel to other African countries themselves—which would’ve helped expose them to other beautiful African countries, other than their own. I still support their cause to expropriate land without compensation. Other than that, I’ve no…

    • (Continued)… desire to live in South Africa. It will take perhaps another 30 years for the South African blacks to learn to live with other black Africans from around the continent. So if you travel there, you do so at your own risk. Instead, go to some other friendly African countries, and they’re many: Tanzania, Kenya, Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Angola, Mozambique and many more. Just stay away from South Africa for your own safety. Otherwise, you may be the next victim.

    • Musa, please stop using abusive language on this public platform. This Mushota, though sounding irritating, has a point. Everyone return home to beautiful mother Zambia and leave that country SA to the owners, period! Let the Chinese, Indians and any other undesired non-Zambians also go back to their own countries. Simple!!

  4. I don’t even know what people want from certain countries. Just stay home and fight hard to make it in life. That country is not good at all. Better go to Kenya. Suppose we start killing their people who have flocked our mines, what will they say? These people have no iota of common sense they are barbaric.

    • This is a crime that has been committed. Let SAPS do their work. Trying to generalize that all South Africans hate Zambians is nonsensical and untrue. Yes there are uneducated hoodlums in SA and we do have such in Zed as well. Black South Africans need our help to go through this phase of self hate due to many years of brutal apartheid rule. They have low self esteem and often see an attack on a fellow African brother as a way to assert their self worth.

    • Stop wasting your time Zambia is as peaceful as it has always been. If you think you’ll scare off investment you pressed a wrong button. Just come back home before you’re stoned yourself.

  6. This is sad. South Africans are not good people. We are all Africans but why would a fellow African do that to another African? We were the ones who were blaming the whites for what they did to Africa. So, we chased Whites so that we start killing one another? It’s a shame indeed! Love is waxing cold in Africa!

The thugs have no b.alls to face-down the kaffir-sniggering boer, chinese or Guptas…but a FELLOW African is Freiwild….really sad indeed ! That is the sort that robbed us Lucky Dube – the plea: I did not know it was Lucky !! Eish !!

    At home you are safe. That status you want in South Africa is not more important than your life. There is no peace in that country

  9. ALL SOUTH AFRICANS ARE VIOLENT. THEY ARE AS BAD AS AMERICANS.
    ONLY A TOUGH PHILIPPINES-LIKE LEADER DUTERTE WILL STOP THE VIOLENCE.

  11. Yes, if we keep attacking each other with those irritating tribal insults, very soon you too will also be killing each other just like in South Africa. That’s the way it starts, promoting violence with those hate speeches. People are judged by their own merits not by tribe.

  13. If Tokota Boys think they are so hard and tough, let them go to Jo Burg. I feel sorry for the misguided unemployed youths that want to imitate real OG’s. Those Tokota chaps simply need instant vigilant justice ama necklace ya ma tyele period, all that petty *****ic havoc would come to an abrupt end. Even recruits from Lilayi can handle those chaps.

  15. Violence and xenophobia in RSA is as a result of inter-generational trauma brought about by the past apartheid policies. Any zambian living in RSA is not safe!!!!!!!!!. Zambian government is too weak to protect its citizens….
