7:31 am

7:32 am
his girlfriend died in the flames. adamantly i was born. here don't have. anything in anymore. i lost my pleasure in the nose down it was almost my can deny it was everything. sue was telling myself that it made back. but they're great me to take me outside this in no. don't go to. so i survived. the incident was just one of the $139.00 documented shop looting in south africa in 2018 motivated by ins in a for every month in townships like white city but african born foreigners are victims of violent hate crimes many locals think they are responsible for low wages and job losses. to meet as in a for the gang who often
7:33 am
target foreign owned stores its leader calls himself the deaf and to him foreigners are not just easy targets he holds them responsible for his own misery. you go to join is great now every corner you go to put in jail for interesting work that's working that foreign policy in ways working it's a job for a south african was supposed to be making the south africans now they are dependent on crime money and money from government it's not that people don't want to wait for the people they want to work but there are no jobs there because the foreigners they are taking all the chores so obviously we are going to call these neighborhood is controlled by gangs even the police don't enter the slum which is built on top of a dam only drugs help make the residents lives more bearable they project their frustrations
7:34 am
onto foreigners who they believe better off. i have to do this if i don't do it then my family will suffer in my kill me if i say how many troops and soldiers i have my soldiers must eat they must move my soldiers with. my soldiers more if i go on him immediately don't really predict what will teach you i live my friend and will pray to the lord to forgive us. because he knows we don't have jobs. before their reach tonight the gang members smoke some hearing they see it's trying to strike again. but not all south africans have the same attitude is gadhafi and he's made my legs neighbors helping me get back on his feet after the attack they give him blankets food and most importantly the strength to carry on. with another $1000.00.
7:35 am
that's not right we are all humans we should treat each other with respect and show born to he is human no matter where he comes from. we have a hand on his neighbors malenko has restored his own shop he hopes he will be able to restock soon but those responsible for the death of his partner still have not been found monaco says the police did not want to investigate the matter of a foreigner he still feels the culprits might return at any time. it's great that he has some good neighbors to support it reminds us that there are still good side to humanity xenophobia is a serious issue that needs to be addressed in south africa especially as a long way to go in dealing with it to get to the heart of the issue we sent our reporter money to alexandra the township of johannesburg known for frequent outburst of violence against foreigners he spoke with residents and migrants alike
7:36 am
the problem of xenophobia. the 77 percent is back on the road once more and this week we are in johannesburg south africa specifically the township of alexandra and it's here that we've witnessed some of the west skirmishes related to zyna phobia it's not a problem exclusive to south africa but why is it that it seems to be flaring up quite often here well i have a very good looking panel here who are going to help me answer that question and i want to start with ray who's actually a resident here what is the current situation in south africa in a spazz in a phobia is constant. as for now like currently it's like. before we would find cases where by like foreigners we've actually been violently attacked by local residents because of the foreigners obviously so yeah i want to get to the food affinity you are actually working with a consortium of refugees and migrants here in south africa why do you think that
7:37 am
the flare ups here end up being violent i think in south african context quite a number of issues that in south africa we know to be addressed issues of service divided in communities where the local residents will be trying to force a 10 basic services to be delivered in their communities and when the government not coming in forefront in such kind of critical basic services. that local resident with then 10 up with a foreign nation. out there and that's where they attack foreign nationals because they are the most vulnerable groups in the communities don't you see it is like as you can see like most of this sort of we can actually we really do like when things was a little. drinking and everything like that while for a while foreign people move away from their countries become sort of you can study . and when they study in terms you get the jobs that they want let me come to the table here you are a university student how is the representation in your vast city is it. what we're
7:38 am
hearing there that south africa's a busy lazing around and it's filled with foreigners i think if they're foreigners coming into south africa illegally that was going to be like a little bit easier for us because if they come illegally in south africa like most of their foreigners here they kill our fellow brothers and sisters they kill your fellow brothers us exactly so but he said probably do you mean literally killing like murder exactly like you would say. if they kill and. they look they don't. like find fingerprints and stuff i want to see if by show of hands how many here are foreign i was meaning not south african. yeah ok so how does it feel for you to hear that foreigners are coming to this country and causing crime this situation is going straight up to all of you here or the
7:39 am
speakers so as you say that the foreigners kill your brothers and your sisters right the only thing that's going to come in my mind is that i need to self-defense myself which means when you're probably going to pull up in my housing try to take me definitely i'm going to kill him why because you want to i'll take me he wants to kill me and at the seams this is our phobia i've never seen a black person go. because because the skin is white so since like all of us you black all of us we really belong in africa. your blood is red i really just want to understand from you ray do you feel that if the foreign nationals were for some reason or the other to vacate this area that life would suddenly be ok your hospitals where i am not entirely of course the country has a country is going to have its own problems but i feel if the illegal foreigners were to be shifted things would be right i don't understand this please help me
7:40 am
understand because let me ask someone who's documented does it change for you when you have your papers there's a perception of other south africans against you as a foreign a change or is it still the same still the same they still see you as like a foreigner because at the end of the day they don't know who is who is documented you know i mean like i could come from i could be like from literally in this neighborhood and everything and be a foreigner and then it won't change you from here legally or illegally do still see me as a foreigner let me come to you son. because a lot of things have been said and you're talking about documenting people we've heard that it doesn't matter the perception is still the same all those things that show us that i'm from the sotu i'm from mozambique i'm from this particular country you know why you need to do that so that everywhere you go you're able to prove yourselves as to who you are but now we have different forms of pressures that are
7:41 am
forcing people out of their homes economic migration is one of them climate change is another one so what do we say to those people you're not welcome in south africa no not at all was saying people need to come to south africa legally there's nobody who can go to any other country illegally that isn't everyone who's coming here in the county must be taken meant that because you cannot come from fed i'm saying if you're coming here and we find you roaming around and you don't have any legal document to be here you must have deported to a country what do you have to do how do you feel about that most of our leaders and most of our community members they talk about people being documented people to access means people to access asylum seeker status or if it is status but if it isn't people who are saying that they don't have an idea how difficulty is to access just a particular asylum seeker status in south africa currently in the whole of $54000000.00 population of south africa we only have to really few decision offices
7:42 am
that deals with asylum seekers and refugees how do we make sure that in 2024 we're not in south africa talking about the same thing well if documentation is riling then it's important that on the government must listen to the people and documented the foreignness documents about those who would love to get documented because one of the studio talks that where you under command maybe everyone says to undocumented so eastern assumption it's a stereotype too much you can eat beans in but when i saw him she news undocumented any more solutions if like some of the people who are areas they don't have their i.d.'s and. then that's the reason why i keep saying that our leaders are not doing their jobs so what's the solution what's a way forward the way forward is that. we need we need to get away to them and find a way to the people that firstly to the political leaders is to out statement which are very fight and very fight because if they unverified statements encourage
7:43 am
their division among communities secondly the issue of documentation it does not just rely on go into all my face it also rely on the policies in place so we need to educate. its africa ok on that note i suppose we can end this conversation it's a pity really that we can go on and on forever but as you can see the issues i mean yeah the biggest one here for me being documentation documentation documentation i don't know what you took from it but thank you for watching. thank you but it's a shame that most of the participants failed to condemn the attacks and killings violence is never the answer and i'm really disappointed that people were trying to justify it no one has a right to attack or take another person's life but what do you
7:44 am
think you can add your thoughts on the topic by engaging in the debate on our facebook page and you can watch a longer version of that street debate on our you tube channel now let's take a deep breath and move on we're taking a trip to towns in the as big a city that has allowed its home to more than $4000000.00 people including. our crew to show us around the aadhaar check it out. hello this is such a cool we're going to take you on a ride in there is some city. major . and i made my suit many for short together from the
7:45 am
white charter crew tanzania's finest collective who proudly called dar good but before we check out das bustling center we head into major favorite coffee shop in one neighborhood how do we get there would at 3 we would buy judges favorite means of transport. but. there's nothing better than extra coffee from your favorite barrister served with his tasty sweets of course. this afghanistan you know those like us. graffiti isn't new to dar in 1970 many young people started to search for greener pastures elsewhere but before they left they took a piece of charcoal and route their names on walls around the city just like here in the coffee shop as a way of leaving the r. mark young people who are coming across like i want.
7:46 am
to be in country and. i'm going to chalk marks were cold chata and now just like back then young people are still type indian names around the city as a way to be remembered whether they are leaving the country altogether or entering the hustle and bustle of dar. dara salaam is east africa's biggest city and an economic powerhouse to watch a crew plan to do a graffitti piece as one of the city's big bus terminals designed to noon but unfortunately they run out of spray paint but they are in luck here are the markets in the city center you can find almost anything you're looking for so it's the perfect place to grab some spray cans right you can see here so you can take 2 or 3 days. as you can good friendships to find maybe just room so that's the challenge ok so maybe it's not that easy but eventually what shutter
7:47 am
crew can get started the 4 friends have learned how to make the most of what they have to the street art the coop to keep the free spirits of doris a llama life which continues to attract artist and activist from all around the world. young people from our brigade should know that that is salaam was the only place where in the seventy's and eighty's revolution around the world from uncle max to take. on them at some point they've been in the city so they see don't call it their version of receipt. so what's the one shot to cruise biggest dream encouraging more young people to express themselves with graffiti art so what are you waiting for grab a can and chatter chatter. thanks to the what's out there crew for showing us. so you should definitely put that on your travel list. next report
7:48 am
is also about. to be more specific millions of african women spend hours in the solomon chair undergoing the painful and time consuming process of breeding the i have and getting extensions our very own either community is a living example of that. millions of women swear bay bridge of hair they spend hours and are going to uncool to build process of getting extensions. can money is one of them african women getting your hair done is no walk in the park i can tell you about for free it can take hours and with you know people pulling in different directions it can be rare in painful but today we want to go beyond the half styles i want to find out why women are spending so much money so much time on their head why is it such a big deal why is it such a big identity maka for africa when. you can't trust anybody with your permission but he did knows that she's in safe hands like movies and not to market. $450.00
7:49 am
euros a year on their head. duty then you just need to be smart even the bible says the hazel months duty if you must be teased from the new bring you need to also make quick flowers on top of your braids. ok so most women a 1000000 legal terms of the women team here but it's not a one size fits all extensions are the most fulfilling way to promote and many of the immensity of the week however more and more young women and rejecting unnatural options a growing number of the hairstylist community naturally yeah. i think that was one big lie that we bought and you know even when we look at white people's have their weight suki and street you want to be like that but why you know our hair doesn't naturally grow streety grows kinky and clients are making
7:50 am
a statement to women and you have to come home and if you want to join the natural movement do you want it's quite a commitment it needs a lot of commitment just the way you take care of a baby or something it also needs the same care. so natural doesn't mean can't quite the old city. so when we say our hair is so strongly rooted to identity does it mean that if i choose to wear a wig or a weave i lose my identity as an african woman absolutely not absolutely not i still wear weaves and we can i braid my hair and it does not take away from my identity as a natural natural head african woman it's just a way to stitch up your style or even grow your hat even gray an actual hand without you know subjecting you to constant money. and of course also plenty of room for. we can actually hear.
7:51 am
well better you than me i don't think i can pull it out of where last see that like me for me i don't need to braid mine right well today we have a brand new segments to share with you on the 77 percent it's called the spread host kyra lucas. and says us questions on sex love and relationships and nothing is off limits but if you don't believe me just watch. hello there and welcome to the spread a safe space where we get to discuss everything sex and relationships today our e-mail comes from a lady by the name of time diesel and she says hi kat can we discuss consent under the influence of alcohol last weekend i was out on a date after a few drinks i ended up going home with this guy and woke up the next morning having no recollection of what had happened the night before it had me thinking
7:52 am
when sleeping with a partner for the 1st time if either or both of you are drunk how do you gauge consent. while that's a big one 1st let's start by defining consent consent as an agreement between participants to engage in different sexual activities consent isn't always verbal but verbal e agreeing to participate in different sexual acts helps to form stronger boundaries let's paint a picture to better understand your question so you're out with somebody for the 1st time you go to a nice little restaurant you're having grown up the food is great the music even better and the drinks just hitting the right spot so much so that it gives you the courage to make the 1st move you say to your date hey i like your clothes i bet they'd look better on my bedroom floor but you both laugh as lame as that joke is there was an element of truth to it you have more during conversation is flowing flirtation is being reciprocated and before you know it's mid-sentence whom your date for
7:53 am
a kiss on you look at this point you probably think that your date is ready to go all the way right or wrong this is where verbal consent where very important just feel free to ask do you want to come back to my place and even when your date says yes it doesn't mean that they want to sleep with you maybe they're just interested in interior devalued and you see the thing with consent is that it can be withdrawn at any time and the absence of an enthusiastic yes especially when it comes to sexual interactions just mean. because it sometimes really hard for people. understand the basics of consent here's a list of things that consent is not silence is not consent what somebody is wearing is not consent consent of another time is not always consent guiltiness somebody into saying yes is not consent somebody's sexuality is not consent someone's gender is not consent and somebody's drunk is definitely not consent the greatest thing about sex is it can be so much more beautiful when 2 consenting
7:54 am
adults agree and usually are sticky to engage so place a and have fun from me. till next time good bye. thank you for your refreshing the honest advice and welcome to the 77 percent. now if you want to get in touch with us or if you have any questions about our program write to us at 77 a d.-w. dot com we are reaching the end of the show but yes what to expect in the next edition of the 77 percent. piece with young people entirely nothing gonna beat on unemployment and migration. we started this show talking about violence and hate and now we ended with some much needed love. as always before we go let's listen to some highlife music from kwame huge and he's one of the best musicians from my country god has his song.
