Debunking myths about foreign-owned businesses in townships

In this eNCA online debate, I chat to Abdirizak Ali Osman from the Somali Community Board of South Africa; Dumisani Mathabela, a store and restaurant owner in Dobsonville, Soweto; Sally Peberdy of the Gauteng City Region Observatory and Wayne Ncube of Lawyers for Human Rights. We discuss the myths that are held about foreign nationals involved in informal retail trade and discuss  a way out of the tense relations between local and migrant business owners.

You can view the video at Youtube and on eNCA’s website http://www.enca.com/south-africa/live-role-migrants-township-economy
