WATCH | ‘SA is burning’: Looting and violence chaos in KZN and Gauteng
A violent mob set Naledi Mall in Vosloorus alight on Monday morning (July 12 2021), and then looted and vandalised the building. Many people, including children, were seen stealing groceries from the fire-damaged buildings.
After looting and violence hit KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng over the weekend, Monday morning saw the looting of shopping centres and burning buildings.
Protesters have blockaded roads and some were seen walking off with appliances, including TV sets and washing machines, and shopping trolleys filled to the brim.
Police and private security companies battled to disperse protesters from Friday when the protest action, themed #FreeJacobZuma and #KZNShutdown on social media, saw violence erupting across the province. The protest action has since spread to Gauteng.
