The protests quickly turned violent and resulted in looting, fires, and the destruction of shopping centers. At least a recorded number of 212 people were killed across the country, over 2,550 were arrested, and more suspects are still under surveillance, said President Cyril Ramaphosa on Friday in a televised address. The destruction occurred not only in Durban — a city where many of Zuma’s supporters reside — but in the administrative capital of Pretoria and the largest urban center, Johannesburg.
We are running campaigns across the country aimed at: 1. Ensuring sustainable food security 2. Responding to the humanitarian crisis 3. Supporting businesses get back on track after the looting incidents
