People were widely filmed breaking the law, but what does the aftermath look like?
The true cost of the violence and looting South Africa experienced will be felt for years to come.
Jacaranda FM News reported that in his weekly newsletter on Monday, 19 July 2021, President Cyril Ramaphosa
reflected on Nelson Mandela Day which took place in the aftermath of a week in
which parts of the country were gripped by violence and mayhem.
President Ramaphosa said: “It was a week in which we were confronted by deeply unsettling images of desolate owners standing outside the shells of what was once a thriving business; of looted shops and warehouses; of burning trucks and buildings and streets strewn with debris; of anxious citizens barricading their communities; and of snaking queues of people lining up to buy food.”
The South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA), a representative body of the commercial property industry in South Africa, released an infographic to show the impact and damage the looting and protests had on South Africa’s economy.
