Johannesburg, South Africa –  Six people were injured last night when Kya Sands informal settlement erupted in violence injuring 6 people.

Although the incident is blamed on xenophobic violence it might of been sparked by something other than xenophobia namely a robbery gone wrong.

For weeks now reports and organizations worry about the xenophobia that was said to go full out after the world cup and this sparked fears causing many Zimbabweans and foreigners from other countries to flee South Africa.

There is currently a heavy police presence in the informal settlement.
