Abstract:Reports on xenophobia in South Africa directed towards citizens of other African countries appear sporadically in the media. With this in mind a study on the relationship between street traders was conducted during 1999 in a section of Govan Mbeki Avenue in the city centre of Port Elizabeth. The research population consisted of 32 black street traders, of whom 23 were South African and 9 non-South African. The study shows that black South African and non-South African street traders can live in harmony. Although representatives from both groups admitted to experiencing some problems, most of them were optimistic about the prospect of cooperation and coexistence. However, the goodwill and cooperation seem to hinge on the reality that the two groups were not in direct competition with each other for customers. Bibliogr., notes, sum. [Journal abstract, edited]
