Blessing Mashangwa, a prominent Zimbabwean businesswoman was violently removed from her second property in Johannesburg, South Africa. The incident occurred on Tuesday afternoon and involved suspected members of the male dominated Dudula gang.
The development highlights the broader concern over xenophobic violence targeting Zimbabwean nationals and the lack of response from local authorities.
Blessing Mashangwa, a successful businesswoman from Zimbabwe, owns multiple properties in Johannesburg, South Africa, ZimEye reveals.
She has been residing in the country for a significant period, contributing to the local economy and fostering cross-border business relations.
On Tuesday Ms Mashangwa was forcibly expelled from her second property in Johannesburg by a group of suspected male Dudula gang members. Video evidence seen by ZimEye, captured three individuals ordering her to leave her own house. The incident was marked by violence and aggression towards Ms. Mashangwa. The perpetrators are on video displaying no regard for her safety or property rights.
Prior to this incident, on the preceding Sunday, another group of six violent men invaded Ms. Mashangwa’s first house. The precise motive behind these attacks is yet to be established, although it is believed that xenophobia and anti-Zimbabwean sentiments played a significant role.
