What’s Happening In South Africa
Rioting and looting have broken out across the country, with a concentration in the KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng provinces, where the capital city, Johannesburg, is located. The outroar started when former president Jacob Zuma was arrested after defying a court order to testify before a graft inquiry. Many looters have said their actions support their families and pressure the government that has done little to provide for the growing poverty population.
Hundreds of casualties are reported due to the unrest. The military has recently been deployed to assist law enforcement in suppressing the outroar. The turmoil has run alongside a long-lasting battle with the COVID-19 pandemic, further amplifying the criticalness of the situation.
The country is in its third wave of infection outbreaks. The South African government lockdowns designed to cut the COVID-19 transmissions plunged the economy into its deepest recession on record. Hunger and poverty hit an all-time high and caused the unemployment rate to skyrocket to 33% in March. Director of Signal Risk, a Cape Town-based risk consultancy firm, Ryan Cummings, said politics triggered the actions of those who took to the streets in violent protest. Still, the core issue was “socio-economic grievances and frustration with the state”.
