The residents are also destroying shacks belonging to foreign nationals calling for heads.
According to NewzRoom Afrika, the residents decided to take the law into their hands after being ‘let down’ by the police, whom they are also accusing of taking bribes from ‘illegal’ foreign nationals.
Last year in April, Diepsloot residents murdered Zimbabwean Elvis Nyathi.
Nyathi was assaulted and burnt to death by a group of Diepsloot residents.
Seven people were later arrested for the murder, and the case is still pending before the courts.
