Big online delivery delays in South Africa

South African online shoppers should expect delays in the deliveries of their orders in the coming days due to looting sprees and public violence in areas of KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng.

Couriers are among the businesses hit by the plundering, with warehouses being damaged, equipment stripped and vandalised, and customers' packages being stolen.
 
saw this morning my Takealot delivery is going to take longer than usual altho everything was in stock
 
Durban is a warzone... Literally

And my CPU was supposed to arrive yesterday...
 
Why did the police instruct armed guards not to shoot, was that legal?

My Takealot order is showing as shipped and was due to arrive tomorrow and now I am thinking it will probably need to be reshipped.

What I don't understand about that, is why didn't SAPS do anything, like use teargas, or throw bricks and stones at the looters, literally anything other than do nothing whatsoever.
