Today being the fourth day has seen an exacerbation of the protest. Buildings and cars on the principal streets of Johannesburg have been torched and left destroyed.

KwaZulu-Natal, a suburb of Johannesburg was hit hard by the protest as a shopping mall was set ablaze and hordes of people huddled in to loot.

A popular news channel in South Africa, enca.com, reports that police arrested 219 people and major streets in the city have been closed in an effort to control the crisis.

The president of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa, urged for a peaceful protest on Sunday, 6th July.

“While there are so many who have been hurt and angry at this moment, there can never be any justification for such violent, destructive and disruptive actions,” he said during his speech. He also added that no criminality will be tolerated in South Africa.

A body was found dead amidst the destructive chaos in Vooslorus- Gauteng, another town in Johannesburg. The police are currently investigating the death of six more dead bodies. See more footage from the looting and rioting below.
