In the month of July, hundreds of people lost their lives as a result of the unrest which took place in the provinces of Kwa-Zulu Natal and Gauteng. The former president of South Africa was used as the forefront for some community members to loot and vandalize private and public property.


Some weeks after the unrest was contained, there was an emergence of a circular allegedly saying that there would be part 2 of the unrest.

Looting some weeks back
Members of the community learned from the mistakes made in the last period of unrest. It is business as usual in most parts of the country, including Gauteng and Kwa-Zulu Natal.


The law enforcement agencies are out in their numbers and they are ready for those individuals who may want to cause unrest.
People in the KwaZulu Natal should rejoice in the guard which is being provided by the members of the SANDF.

There is no case of violence that has been reported
It is selfish of those faceless people who made calls for the country to enter into another season of self-destruction.
The instigators of the unrest did not even help bury the people who lost their lives during the unrest.


There was no assistance or compensation that was rendered to those who ended up in hospitals as a result of the unrest.

It is good to note that the police are out in their numbers in Gauteng to ensure that peace prevails. No violence has taken place
This goes to show how those faceless instigators are selfish and not caring at all. They only care about the destruction of the lives of people and the fulfillment of what they want to achieve.


The members of the public should ask themselves these questions before they embark on the alleged incitement to shutting down the country.

Did the unrest bring any good things? Do they still have the looted goods? Did Jacob Zuma get released from jail?

It is really impressive to note that the law enforcement agencies are out in their numbers and nothing bad has happened
If the answer to the above questions is a negative one, then the call for a National Shutdown is not the answer.


Society members should ask themselves what they will benefit from indulging in self-destruction.


This is time to be focusing on rebuilding the country, not destroying the little that is remaining. The instigators need to be brought to book and sent to prison as it is where they belong.
