Looting In Coligny Reveals Socio-Ecomonic and Racial Problems

Residents of Coligny express their worries about the stores that have been looted as well as the tension between workers and farmers.

The murder of a 12-year-old Coligny boy did not only spark outrage in the community, but also exposed racial and socio-economic inequalities in the farming town situated between Ventersdorp and Lichtenburg.

Farm workers and residents in the area have defended the previous looting spree earlier this week, saying it was a sign of their frustrations.
