In this video by ‘Loving Life’ we see how the Natal Spa in Vryheid, KZN was attacked. Guests had to be evacuated to safe zones after 100’s of weapon wielding protesters descended on this popular holiday resort on 21 December 2018. The venue was destroyed as widows, door, fridges etc. were smashed by panga and knobkerrie wielding attackers. The protesters demanded that staff abandon their duties or they would be killed. A SAPS spokesperson said that the group started gathering at 04:00. Welcome to the New South Africa!

None of the guests were hurt during the attack and the Spa is expecting at least another 130 guests who had booked at the resort to still check in. The attack was incited by false rumours of racism towards the staff.
