Didn't even give a listen,the numbers are already enough to worsen a chronic ulcer
LETTER: The looters have triumphedAfter watching #FeesMustFall activist Bonginkosi Khanyile’s theatrics in court, I have to eat the proverbial humble pie and say I am sorry.
Sporting the young Nelson Mandela’s hairdo, Khanyile indirectly gave the middle finger to the constitution and judiciary. Suddenly I saw a vision of the future of this country, and I was scared. Khanyile and his ilk have won.
To all those who planned and participated in the infamous July lootings, you have triumphed. We are at your mercy. Congratulations on your hard work, Jacob Zuma is now a free man without having spent a day in a jail cell.
Violence rules. There is no rule of law. Justice is for the chosen ones, not the likes of me. The businesses destroyed and jobs lost were worth it.
I have always said the number one accused in the July riots is the ANC. Now, may I ask, which foreign company in their right mind will invest in a country that has no laws?
CAPE TOWN - State-owned special risks insurer, Sasria, is technically bankrupt as it faces paying out up to R25 billion in claims after the violence that tore through KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng in July.
The looting and destruction followed the jailing of former President Jacob Zuma.
Sasria has told Parliament’s select committee on finance that its liabilities exceeded its assets and it needed a financial shot in the arm from Treasury.
JOHANNESBURG - Sasria, South Africa’s life insurance company that provides coverage for damage caused by special risks such as politically motivated malicious acts and riots said that the nation must rest assured that they’ve got a handle on the current situation.
Sasria executive for insurance operations, Fareedah Benjamin, told Eyewitness News that it is adequately capitalised and backed by international reinsurers to facilitate all claims payments.
Yesterday - panic, needed bailouts ...
It is the only insurer in the country offering coverage for damage from special risks such as riots, strikes, terrorism and public disorder.ewn.co.za
Today it's different ... ?

But what is new ? We have seen the last 20 years , how the law is applied to certain people and not to others. The looting has become a common "phenomenon" , and the police just watches. JuJu shooting a gun in public space, EFF burning shops, racist rants from blacks are approved. The corruption etc.
I bet all these guys don't have a plan beyond Zuma, you can already see how useless they have become when the taps to the state funds were cut off, besides the violence I don't see any other way out for them.Unless he's propped up by Zuma himself, or powerful people in his area, I don't see him going anywhere. He seems to have stagnated given his high profile student days.
They really should go and have a nice, long chat with the councillors and others who have organized this and urged them to loot.'IT WAS PEER PRESSURE': JULY LOOTERS REMORSEFUL AS DAILY LIFE GETS TOUGHER
Thousands of people who lost their jobs as a result of the unrest are feeling the full brunt of a lack of income and many families are struggling to find the supplies they previously got from local shops.ewn.co.za
The bill for the free lunch may arrive late but it always arrives. Fools will eventually learn that nothing is free, there is always a price to pay. Ample evidence indicates that South Africans are stubbornly slow learners who are in line for decades of bitter lessons.
