    South Africa is in the grip of its worst unrest since the end of apartheid with shopkeepers firing at looters and a woman throwing her baby from a burning mall roof as violence sparked by the jailing of ex-president Jacob Zuma entered its fifth day today.

    At least 45 people have now died - including 10 trampled to death during a stampede at a looted shopping mall - in riots centered around KwaZulu-Natal and Guateng provinces that began last week and raged through the weekend after 79-year-old Zuma was jailed for failing to cooperate with a corruption probe.

    The army has been called in to help stem the unrest after fearful citizens began forming 'defence squads' to protect their homes and businesses amid warnings that food supplies could soon run short as supermarket owners shut up shop amid the widespread looting.

    The armed forces said they were sending 2,500 soldiers to help the police, who have been utterly overwhelmed.

    But these numbers compare with the more than 70,000 troops deployed to enforce last year's coronavirus lockdown, and only handful of soldiers were seen at some shopping centres.

    President Cyril Ramaphosa, who Zuma and his supporters accuse of carrying out a witch-hunt against him with the corruption probe, appealed for calm as mobs ransacked shopping malls on Monday night - saying the current unrest is the worst the country has seen since the end of white minority rule in the 1990s.

    Damn shame. I think the white citizens / residents of SA should probably collectively pull the pin, get the **** out and request refugee / immigrant status in a European or American country, or maybe Australia. The alternative is probably going to wind up being a return to the Apartheid ways due to the anger on both sides.

    Sounds like you are kind of, sort of, almost taking the side of the RSA's current government. If that is correct, please can you explain why you might be doing so. I must admit ignorance on my part as I have no clue, other than what I read here, as to what is going on there or as to which side I might consider in the right; any info to enlighten me would be appreciated.

    So they brought in 2500 troops to help deal with rioters.

    Meanwhile, they deployed 70,000 troops to enforce with covid lockdowns.
