"We came here to enjoy ourselves and be part of the this country... and also make people happy," Tignyemb, who is Cameroonian, tells

"It's scary. I wanted to go to Durban for holidays at the end of the season but my teammates are saying I must not go there, they are going to kill. I don't know if they are seriously or joking but I am really scared.

"Seriously these kind of things should not happen. If there are issues, they must talk and try to fix the problems. This thing of fighting and killing is so scary."
