Today in Alexandra, a township close to Johannesburg, Police and SA National Defence Force (SANDF) were patrolling the streets and houses to recover some of the goods that had been stolen by the looters. Police also had to attend to a number of incidents where roads were blocked in certain areas of Alexandra. The violence started last week in Kwazulu-Natal and Gauteng when former president Jacob Zuma was jailed.
At least 212 people have died in the unrest, including some in shopping-center runaway, and more than 2,500 have been arrested across the two provinces.
