Mozambique cyclone death toll rises to 468
Four individuals have been arrested on suspicion of involvement in a deadly shooting on a bus in South Africa last July, drawing praise for the governments of both Mozambique and South Africa from the Atapfuka International Carriers Association.
Miramar TV report reads as follows.
“This was the response of the Mozambican and South African governments to the wave of murders which are decimating Mozambican tourists and workers in South Africa. The most recent case was the death of a young man who, in the act of defending this driver, was shot dead.
“Representatives from both countries highlighted the measures that led to the arrest of four suspects in the neighbouring country, to the delight of the Atapfuka International Carrier Association.
“And they point out that the South Africans only acted following actions carried out in Maputo.
“The case is being heard in a South African court.
“These are dangerous trips in search of better conditions, sometimes in the dead of night, a time that gives wrongdoers greater scope for action.
“The association recognises that night travel is unsafe, but says even worse is travelling in unlicensed vehicles.
“For this young South African, the root of these problems is linked to xenophobic attitudes.”
