I am a South African who immigrated to the United Kingdom 12 years ago and I am feeling extremely concerned about the current situation happening in South Africa. For the past few days KwaZulu Natal and Johannesburg have been dealing with looters, rioters and attacks on commercial properties and businesses which have been burnt to the ground after looting.

Currently there are extremely limited stores available to buy essential food, water or medical supplies, which has now become an issue.  People are standing in mile long ques from early in the morning in the hope that they can get some essentials for their families.  As the shelves are being packed, they are being emptied due to the shortage of food, water and medical supplies.  In certain areas of KwaZulu Natal people are unable to get to food stores as they are still experiencing unrest and attacks in their community, which is stopping communities from leaving their residential homes to go out searching for essentials due to the attacks on vehicles and people.

It all started with our ex-president Jacob Zuma being imprisoned for 15 months for contempt of court where his followers started the riots to which has now escalated into political aggression targeting the public where attacks are now heading towards residential areas.  The civilians have barricaded entrances into their communities to safeguard their families and businesses from being attacked and looted by the rioters.  Everyone has had limited sleep and worried that more attacks are on the way.  

The citizens of South Africa have had to take matters into their own hands using any form of weaponry due to the government not sending out any or limited military assistance.  Water pipes, electrical substations, factories, businesses even the Blood Bank were targeted by the attackers.

John Sparks from Sky News has broadcasted a excellent piece of journalism explaining the current unrest and kaos happening in South Africa.  https://youtu.be/hDXgfiQghIE
