“It is alleged that Basotho nationals were attacked by Zimbabweans today [Sunday] while playing soccer,” said Brooklyn police spokesperson Captain Colette Weilbach.

“The Basotho nationals responded and drove their attackers out of the camp.”

Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha said seven Basotho were treated for stab wounds and severe lacerations in Plastic View.

Six had minor to serious injuries, while one man was critically injured.

The man later died in hospital.

“Reports from people at the squatter camp indicate that four others were killed further into the camp; however hostile community members with sticks and pangas refused the emergency service access to the camp,” Botha said.

Weilbach confirmed a second body was found in the informal settlement later in the evening.

Their identities were not yet known.

Police were monitoring the situation while leaders from both sides were negotiating possible solutions.

The situation was calm and under control and surrounding suburbs were safe, she added.

No one had been arrested and police would investigate cases of murder and public violence.
