Over 70 Killed As South Africa “Crumbles” Despite Military Intervention

Over 70 Killed As South Africa “Crumbles” Despite Military Intervention

South Africa could be on the verge of collapse, and all the warning signs are there.

The looters have targeted foreign shops, shopping centers, distribution centers/warehouses, and raided gun shops. Shortages are beginning with food, fuel, and ammo. 

Over 70 have reportedly been killed since social unrest began last week after ex-president Jacob Zuma was jailed for failing to appear at a corruption inquiry. Supporters of Zuma, the nation’s first Zulu president, have been on a looting spree that has crippled KwaZulu-Natal and parts of Johannesburg and disrupted national supply routes, resulting in food and fuel shortages in the affected area. 

According to the Consumer Goods Council of South Africa, more than 600 stores have been looted with hundreds millions of dollars in damage. 

President Cyril Ramaphosa deployed the military to quell the unrest, but nothing has worked so far worked.

Civilians are defending their own communities and running low on food, fuel, and ammo; supply chains are destroyed, and it wasn’t quick, about a week, as the country faces collapse. 

On Tuesday, Sapref refinery near Durban, operated by Shell and BP, had shuttered operations due to civil unrest.

There’s also news that the country’s top chicken and meat processor, Rainbow Chickens Ltd., was raided by looters, which means widespread food shortages could be imminent. 

Allegedly, some security firms are reporting police are “low on ammunition.”

Supposedly from a security group, looters are targeting all the gun shops.

Someone explains that the unrest from Zulu rioters is to starve out the “Whites/Indians.” The unknown person said this could be “civil war.” 

seen a couple similar comms messages, they’re pretty much impossible to validate tho, so take with a grain of salt

basically each has stated something close to this, Zulu (rioters/looters) have looted then burned down stores with the intention of starving out Whites/Indians pic.twitter.com/UR71Se1lLP
