I doubt this is true.

I asked the local police here in Bellville.

They told me I should stop listening to whatsapp messages, ie they've not heard of any planned attacks.

Can we get a poll to see who thinks anything will actually happen?

Ready for action? Not like last time when it was just inaction.

Scary to think what would happen if cde. Zuma dies tomorrow? They will find someone to blame for his death.

They just too happy the media promotes it for free.

The next event won't be a looting riot.

Firstly, any feedback or investigation on the instigators of the last insurrection is welcome. Secondly yes the security companies did assist but it was the communities that managed to protect themselves. The SAPS were nowhere to be see and the usual excuses were used no equipment, no vehicles, short staffed.....and the list goes on. What will they do differently is something does occur.

Because I'm sure they heard of the first around of attacks as well...

...all officers must wear bulletproof vests, including those working in charging offices at police stations.
And if anyone wants to know what a charging office is, it's where our finest SAPS members charge their smartphones. Also where they plug their heaters in.

Unless a sort of Streisand effect occurs. i.e. attempts to suppress the fake news will actually hype it and something does happen.

strange that they "know" who the instigators are... but no arrests? however, if you do not pay your fine, they will come and arrest you - same day service.
I've never paid a fine and still waiting to be arrested, so this is false.
They are useless and pointless in all aspects.
