Reports are beginning to come in via Twitter and a shared picture and voice clips on WhatsApp of violence in Delft in Cape Town.
In the WhatsApp note, the voice of a man says: “The fighting is between the blacks and the colored in the Delft area on the R300. There’s a lot of shooting and grenades are being thrown and a lot of people have been shot. It really looks bad. that area needs to be avoided at all costs.
Other reaction on social media blamed describing the violence as a fight between communities on racial grounds as “incitement”, claiming the violence was a result of taxi bosses fighting.
Listen to the two WhatsApp voice notes here where violent fighting can be heard. The two voice notes purport to represent the violence that happened late on Monday:
