Supporters of Jacob Zuma looted shops and blocked highways during the weekend. On Monday, the violence spread rapidly as opportunists looted shops in various parts of Johannesburg and Durban.
These disturbances were triggered by the arrest of the country's former president, Jacob Zuma. He was sentenced to 15 months for refusing to participate in an enquiry into corruption during his 10-year presidency.
Reacting some hours ago, the special Adviser to Lagos State governor on Drainage and Water Resources, Joe Igbokwe described the Protesters as "horrible and shameless looters in South Africa". You can take a look at the photo below.
What do you have to say about what is currently going on in South Africa? Is it because of hunger or the Protesters are just showing their anger over the arrest of Jacob Zuma?
