Johannesburg - Mozambicans stopped working at a Sasol [JSE:SOL] natural gas processing facility in Temane on Thursday in protest against xenophobic violence in South Africa, and because there were South Africans working on the project, a company spokesperson said.

''We have had no cases of violence and the situation remains calm,'' said Alex Anderson.

Those protesting were employees of service providers, Anderson said.

''The Mozambican employees of the service providers have expressed concern around the reported incidents of violence against Mozambicans and other foreign nationals in South Africa and are also protesting about the presence of South African employees of the service providers working on the project.''

The company was taking precautions to ensure the safety of all staff and would continue to facilitate engagement with all parties involved and authorities to find a solution.

Operations at the Central Processing Facility were running as normal, but the LP compression project site work had been halted for the time being.

Mozambican immigrant Ernesto Alfabeto Nhamuave was set alight and was among those who died in xenophobic attacks in Reiger Park outside Boksburg in May 2008.
