Truckers Association of South Africa says violence against truck drivers is xenophobic

President Cyril Ramaphosa has expressed his deep concern on the recent spate of attacks on truck drivers on our roads. He also said that it will have dire consequences on the economy.
More than 20 trucks were targeted on major highways in the past week, resulting in violent attacks, and in murder. Just yesterday morning, police launched a manhunt for those who held up two drivers on the N12 Highway at the Etwatwa-offramp near Daveyton, before setting the vehicles alight. The Truckers Association of South Africa, TASA, has categorically stated that the ambushing of truck drivers is all related to xenophobia. They also say it is assumed that all the drivers are foreign nationals stealing South African jobs.

President of TASA Mary Phadi takes the discussion further.
