Chinese are a minority in South Africa
Carrying placards in both Chinese and English‚ some of the marchers walked from the site of the murder and rape on St Frusquin Street to the police station.
The memorandum that was handed to the station commander called for the swift arrest of the criminals involved.
The community also announced a reward of R100000 for information that might lead to the arrest of the killers.
Speaking outside the police station‚ the chairman of the Chinese CPF‚ Ng Sui Hong‚ said that this year 17 Chinese had been murdered.
“The Chinese are investing billions in South Africa‚ if it carries on like this‚ it will destabilise the economy‚” said Hong.
In the last 10 years‚ 300 Chinese had lost their lives in Gauteng and the Western Cape‚ he added.
“But this crime is the needle that has broken the camel’s back‚” he said.
One of the marchers‚ Malvern resident Connie Welcome‚ said that over the last four months violent crime had increased in her suburb. There had been hijackings‚ house robberies and stabbings in the street.
Police have yet to make an arrest.
