The teargas was probably stolen, so they didn't have any to use...What lockdown?
Looters have exempted themselves from any form of lockdown.
Looters have only managed to loot (more like pillaging and plundering) because SAPS are not enforcing the lockdown, nor are SAPS enforcing law and order.
It's about the lack of law enforcement: enforce the law and order will be restored, it really is that simple.
SANDF controlled roadblocks and control points at onramps and offramps to highways should have been done in April 2020 when we had the most restrictive lockdown "level 5" before there were any lockdown levels defined.
For whatever inexplicable reason this government is inept and incapable of making decisions and implementing anything.
I tend to think that if SAPS used teargas to disperse looters, it would be quite effective.
