In the past seven days, South Africa has never come close to a failed state. Robbery riots have reduced Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal, the two provinces hit by social unrest like warzones. The country quickly fell into what could be the beginning of a civil war, prompting the government to call on military reserves and search for up to 25,000 troops to curb the violence.

Financial Period. “We have a problem African National Congress the fighting erupted on the streets of KwaZulu-Natal. . . the initiative was completely lost to security services. They need urgent reinforcement. ”
Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal have been overrun by black mobsters, most of whom are supporters of former President Jacob Zuma, who were arrested last month and sentenced to prison on corruption charges.
Zuma’s arrest has sparked black unrest across the country, more specifically in the two provinces mentioned above.
President Cyril Ramaphosa could not cope with the social unrest because there were too many local police and military troops. The country remains completely lawless.
Defense Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula told parliament on Thursday that he had “submitted a request for the deployment of plus-minus 25,000” soldiers. There is no word on when more troops will hit the streets.

For Lux, he is ready to die ”to stop the unrest, he said. “We’re about to eat each other.”
the Saker Blog’s Chris Faure asked many important questions:
So, was it a civil war, a coup d’état, or an incitement to a situation different from Rwanda? Or, are the poor simply eating the rich? The main question is why does the state security apparatus not see its arrival? Or are they? And also, where is the emergency situation? Where is the tear gas that separates people? Where is the sound cannon and where is the water cannon? Why are the people not scattered? At this hour, it may be a first force, second force or third force, some combination or some strange contraction, which governs the transgression.
Agreed to “Stunning Map” by PolicyLab, unrest began to devastate Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal. Concerns over whether the unrest has spread to other counties.
