Riots in South Africa

That headline is how the continued violence and destruction is once again being covered overseas.  We are fortunate that the videos we all share over WhatsApp aren’t that widely publicized.  Once again, we are in turmoil and again it relates to Jacob Zuma.  I can’t imagine most of his so-called supporters could explain why their “support” for him involves breaking into shops and stealing all the goods.

I was surprised that the Minister of Police praised the Police for their efforts.  I hardly think what we have seen represents law and order – but he may know things that I don’t.  Those things would have to be pretty scary to be praising what appears to be a police force overwhelmed and simply standing by in many cases.

I appreciate that there is a fear of another Marikana, but I can’t help but feel the Police should have used more of everything – from tear gas and rubber bullets to potentially live ammunition.  We simply cannot have violence and carnage and lives at risk like we have seen this week.
