“They’re taking our jobs” and “corrupting our country”, are some of the statements foreign nationals in South Africa are all too familiar with. They hear these statements daily along with titles such as “kwerekwere”.
For foreign nationals living in Port Elizabeth, each day is a struggle, where they are robbed, killed or denied basic services simply because they are not South Africans. ‘Amakwerekwere” is a film that shares the stories of victims of xenophobia.
Production by Tebo Ramosili & Siyavuya Makubalo
