Two people including Somali trader have been killed and properties robbed after unknown gun attacked a shop in South Africa.

The attack happened on Tuesday night in Ga-Mawa Block 7 near Tzaneen in Limpopo province.

The Somali trader who was identified as Ahmed alongside a South African woman were shot dead in the shop.

Sources confirmed that the gunmen made away with cash and other valuable things.

For years, South African police have been accused of being complicit in attacks against immigrants, something that prompted many immigrants including Somalis to possess illegal arms in a desperate attempt to defend themselves and their properties against gangs.

Dozens of Somalis have been killed in South Africa for the past few years. Many of them have had their businesses robbed and seriously wounded.
