SA Xenophobic Attacks: The brutal death of Emmanuel Sithole

View previous topic View next topic Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]



People stood by while a Mozambican man, Emmanuel Sithole, was cornered, stabbed in the heart and left to die. This happened yesterday in Johannesburg and yes, he died from his wounds.

Killed just for being from another African country.. and the story told by the journalist who witnessed this brutal stabbing is heartbreaking!

See more photos and read the full story from Times Live below.

The brutal death of Emmanuel Sithole 

Shortly before 7am yesterday April 18th, Sunday Times journalists were in Alexandra township, near Sandton, speaking to shop owners who had their businesses looted overnight. Children played, people walked the streets, some stopped to gawk at the carnage from the night before. Then this happened ...

In a gutter in Alexandra a Mozambican man stopped and lay down. The gash to his chest meant he could go no further.

At the day clinic less than 100m away they could not help him. The doctor scheduled to be on duty did not show up because he was a foreigner and feared being a victim of xenophobia.
It began on Friday night when mobs blockaded Arkwright Avenue, one of the main thoroughfares in Alexandra, with rubble and burning tyres. Foreign-owned shops' roofs were ripped open and metal gates torn away as looters went on the rampage.

Outside one spaza shop, a man in a black corduroy jacket and red shirt was walking along the road.

Suddenly a young man dressed in a grey tracksuit jacket beat him over the head with a wrench. The red-shirt man tried to fend off the blows, his arms raised. He stumbled back, falling into rubbish strewn by the roadside. The blows with the wrench rained down. Then the bludgeoning stopped and the man with the wrench moved away.

"Are we safe here?" asked a South African woman watching the attack.

The man in the red shirt got up. Now another man with a beige spottie approached, holding an okapi knife high above his head. Again, the man in the red shirt raised his hands, pleading for mercy. But his pleas were in vain. He was stabbed ... again and again.

The two grappled and fell to the floor. The man with the wrench returned. Finally, a lanky young man sprinted towards the man among the rubbish, kicking him in the head. The young man pulled a butcher's knife. A man in a black leather jacket who had discouraged the attack grabbed the wrist with the butcher's knife. The attackers fled.

The red-shirt man tried to get up but fell. Finally he made it to his feet. Feebly, he walked up the road.

Do you know why they attacked you? Who are you? Where are you from, we asked him.

He turned his head towards the questions fired at him, his face pleading. He said nothing. His shirt was drenched, a 2cm gash in his chest.

Metres further he stumbled and lay down in the gutter. He struggled to sit up and fell down.

"Help me get him into the car. Help me, please," said photographer James Oatway, looking around at the men gathered around him. One stepped forward, reluctantly.

Up the road, at Alexandra Day Clinic, nurses did what they could. There was no doctor; he would have to be taken to Edenvale Hospital.

Along the way the man was flailing wildly, sitting up, lying down, wincing with pain. The wound to his chest was gushing now.

At Edenvale Hospital a lone gurney stood at the entrance. The porters sat in a room with tinted windows. Oatway pleaded for help. The man in the car was critical, he said.

Slowly one porter rose and scribbled in a book. Then the other, both now ambling towards the hospital entrance. Inside the car the red-shirt man looked lifeless.

"He's dead. We can't take him," one porter pronounced.

There was no pulse. Then a gag reflex. He's alive.

Inside the ICU, doctors compressed his chest, massaging his heart. After nearly seven minutes a ventilator was used. Shortly after 9am Emmanuel Sithole was pronounced dead. He was Mozambican. The stab wound to his chest had penetrated his heart.

In his pockets, R285 and 10c in change and a cellphone. His phone would ensure he did not die nameless.

On his wrist, three armbands read: "United for Bafana."

I hope the SA law enforcement agencies are seeing this. The people involved should be arrested and prosecuted. Why should a human being do this to his fellow? Just because of what some big-headed so-called king has said. And then we turn around and blame boko haram and ISIS for their brutalities. Is this guy not worse off?

This is really serious...What normal person would do such a babaric and inhuman act to his fellow human being.... Considering the serious nature of this event, i strongly think something fast should be done by all the african leaders to combat this menace before it gets out of hand...From ISIS to Boko Haram and now this brutal incident...Its really pathetic and who knows what will be next......

Looking at the way they attended to the wounded patient, why wont he die??? Being in this constant pain and not getting any doctor to attend to him when its needed most .. Cant imagine what would happen next if most of the foreign doctors and workers increasingly become afraid due to these attacks......

S.A will definitely not be a safe place to investors and this could go a long way to decline their economy....I just feel sorry for our fellow ghanaians and other africans that are living there.......This is extremely bad....Beating a human being up with wrench and stabbing him in broad day light without any fear or panic its something really really bad..... I pray something is done really fast otherwise Africa will not be safe...

This problem which has arisen is very heart breaking, how can a black man kill his fellow black man from a different African country?
what work at all are the other black men doing there? taxi drivers, hair dressers, barbers and so on. Would this south African man/woman killing his fellow African from other counties do this kind of job ? If yes then they should stop being lazy and work hard to earn money than killing others because they think they have come from other places to get jobs whilst they the South Africans are unemployed.
