“What is happening in South Africa “

Protests over jailing of former leader have spiraled into unrest and looting that has interrupted transportation amid a record Covid-19 outbreak

The arrest of former South African President Jacob Zuma this month has triggered looting and violence in the country’s two most populous provinces amid a record wave of Covid-19 infections.


Mr. Zuma was president of South Africa from 2009 until 2018, a time when alleged corruption escalated in government and the ruling African National Congress. After he resigned, a government-mandated commission started investigating some of these allegations, but Mr. Zuma repeatedly refused to testify, despite all force allegations made against him 

For almost a week now, protesters and looters have set malls ablaze and clashed with police, who have fired back with rubber bullets and are now so overwhelmed that the military has been brought in to back them up.

CNN on Tuesday visited Soweto, where shop owner Rahman, who did not provide his last name, said he is afraid he's lost everything.

"Even right now where I'm going to stay, what I'm going to eat, what I'm going to do -- we don't know nothing. Really, we lose everything," he told CNN


In this situation many properties ,life and government funds will be wasted to maintain peace so let’s also pray for South African also the military should also hold their position and maintain stability in the country
