“It’s A War Zone” – South Africa To Deploy 25,000 Troops As Country On Brink Of Civil War

n the past seven days, South Africa has never come closer to becoming a failed state. The riotous looting has reduced Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal, the two provinces hit hard by the social unrest into what resembles warzones. The country quickly descended into what could be the beginning innings of a civil war, prompting the government to call up military reserves and seek deployment of up to 25,000 troops to quell the violence.

“It is a war zone . . . towns deserted, shops looted, bodies lying on the road,” John Steenhuisen, leader of the main opposition Democratic Alliance, in the province, told Financial Times. “We have an internal African National Congress battle that has spilled over on to the streets of KwaZulu-Natal . . . the initiative has been completely lost by the security services. They need urgent reinforcement.”

Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal have been overwhelmed by black rioters, many of whom are supporters of former President Jacob Zuma, who was arrested earlier this month and sentenced to prison for corruption charges.

The arrest of Zuma sparked black unrest across the country, more specifically in the two provinces mentioned above.

President Cyril Ramaphosa has been unable to stifle the social unrest as local police and military troops have been outnumbered. The nation remains totally lawless.

Defence Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula told parliament Thursday she had “submitted a request for deployment of plus-minus 25,000” soldiers. There was no word on when the additional troops would hit the streets.

Readers may recall, Wednesday evening, we reported South African Army Reserve has ordered “all Reserve Members” for duty on Thursday morning. There were no exact figures on how many reserves would be deployed.

 

So far, more than 70 people have died in the mayhem and more than one thousand arrested. The nation’s supply chains have collapsed as major oil refiners shuttered, ports closed, infrastructure damaged, and warehouses looted.

Some figures estimate 45,000 businesses in Durban, a coastal city in KwaZulu-Natal, have been destroyed. This has resulted in gun stores, grocery stores, pharmacies, and shopping malls either being entirely looted or ran out of supplies as massive shortages begin.

“With no help in sight, racial minorities such as whites and Indians are taking up arms to defend their homes and families,” said National Justice

Johannesburg resident Nhlanhla Lux told FT he defended local businesses with a handful of police and soldiers on Wednesday.

“We can’t sit back while the township economy dilapidates further,” said Lux. “The biggest mall, that employs the biggest number of people, is the one left standing. If it falls, it’s the last elephant.”

For Lux, he is prepared to die” to halt the unrest, he said. “We are on the verge of eating each other.”

The Saker Blog’s Chris Faure asks several important questions:

So, is it a civil war, a coup d’état, or instigation toward a Rwanda-type situation? Or, simply the poor eating the rich? The major question is why did the state security apparatus not see this coming? Or did they? And further, where is the state of emergency? Where is the tear gas to disperse crowds? Where is the sound cannon and where is the water cannon? Why are the crowds not being dispersed? At this moment, it could be a first force, a second force, or a third force, some combination, or some weird conflation, in charge of the lawlessness.

According to the “Unrest Map” via PolicyLab, the unrest is beginning to fizzle out in Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal. The concerns are if riots spread to other provinces.

The government is preparing to reduce further riots by activating thousands of more troops and reserves. The rand strengthened against the dollar for the second day on this positive news.

However, emerging from the smoke is a nation that could be close to civil war, the economy destroyed, supply chains crippled, ports closed, infrastructure ablaze, and there’s no telling on how long it would take to rebuild.

Here are more visuals of South Africa’s chaos.

Residents of towns are setting up checkpoints since police and military are non-existent.

The reality in Durban today. Long lines for basic essentials since shortages of ammo, food, and fuel begin. Next, humanitarian crisis?

More checkpoints.

Huge lines for food as supply chains crippled. People are beginning to starve. No one was prepared.

Images of last night’s looting in KwaZulu-Natal.

More people in line waiting for food.

What happens next in a country that is collapsing remains unknown.

      The Zulu’s are behind it, they’re finally throwing off their oppressors and finding the African style freedom they want so bad after being oppressed for so many decades.

      Will they succeed?

      • Bill says:

        Your statement is something a provocateur would make. Who is oppressing the Zulus in SA? Apartheid was dismantled in 1994. Certainly not whites, they are only a small minority in that country now, with little political power.
        Those “protesters” are doing more than looting and violence, they are mindlessly destroying the capacity to recover by destroying the infrastructure necessary for services, damaging food processing and distribution, destroying businesses, and the ability to even be employed. As a result there will be more social unrest and chaos, wide spread hunger, attacks against white minorities, and breakdown of gov’t. You won’t get the real picture about events in SA from the MSM however.
        SA is in decline every way and has been for several years. Even if order is restored in some manner it will only be temporary at most. It has been trending inexorably towards a failed state, like the other nations in the region.

      Citizens Against the Anti-American Organized Crime Ring of InfraGard Charter

      InfraGard is a terrorist network and organized crime ring that defies the American way of life and the U.S. constitution. It is a public private partnership of a surveillance cult filled with murderers, thieves, perverts, hackers, vandals, and stalkers and has totally destroyed national security, personal security, and also corporate security. It is filled with parasites that exist strictly for the purpose of feeding off of others as predators do. InfraGard uses illegal actions that have bosses spying on employees, co-workers spying on co-wprkers, neighbors spying on neighbors, corporate espionage agents spying on competitors and stealing intellectual property. It is filled with over 180,000 coporations and the 17 intelligence agencies, local governments, police, and academia. They know where you live, how much money you make, what you own, where you bank, who you communicate with. They know everything about you, and they want to know what to steal from whom and who to kill that may be a threat to their parasitic and predatory lifestyles. They have cheated their way through life because they are totally mentally incompetent. 

      Not only are they completely mentally incompetent, but they are also complete fascists, and demand total omerta ( loyalty ) and secrecy.

      InfraGard members also engage in organized community stalking which involves gas-lighting, and letting you know that they are spying on you but deny it when confronted since it is illegal. They do this by repeating or re-enacting things that they would only know if they were spying on you, when there are just too many coincidences to overlook, you know that InfraTards have targeted you. They do black bag break-ins, vandalsm, and crooking, all of which is also totally illegal.

      They are low life, low IQ losers and complete cowards that are so afraid that they need an entire gang of terrorists that they affiliate with for their survival, and even though they have an entire gang of terrorists, they are still too cowardly to admit to what they are doing because they know how sick, disgusting, and evil their behavior is and they do not want to admit that they are as sick, evil, and mentally incompetent as they actually are. They know that people would despise them for it if they came right out and said it in plain English, and they also know that it is all totally illegal, as if laws stop crime from taking place though! We would not have any crime if laws prevented crime. 

      Evidenently, InfraGard members only associate with other InfraGard members. I would not want to associate with people that are involved in InfraGard anyways because their lifestyles are an afront to all that I believe in, so I certaily do not feel any sense of loss over being shunned by InfraGard members. That is their cult like behavior. Anyone not part of the cult is a threat to the cult and is the enemy. These cult like tactics are extremely infamous and are usually associated with fringe element religious extremist groups that have completely wrecked entire families after gettting ahold of one family member to become a part of their cult. They use Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals cult tactics on their targeted victims. Cults rely on brainwashing cult members, Cults tell cult members that if their family members loved them that they would convert and become part of their cult. They force cult members to abandon their own families and relationships. They want total control over cult members lives, and any outsider is a threat because it shatters the illusion of the brain washing that the cult members have been subjected to. 

      If you are a member of the InfraGard cult, just walk away from the surveillance organized crime ring terrorist cult of InfraGard. If you are not a cult member, do not become one. They are evil predators and terrorists.

        InfraGard members have perpetrated a crime spree on me, my life, members of my family, and my property of the most heinous, monstrous, sadistic, barbaric nature. They act as though they are devil worshippers. They must be posessed by the devil. I really cannot imagine what else would cause people to behave the way that they have other than that they are demonically posessed. They are sick as hell. Much worse than Joseph Mengela and Adolph Hitler were and on a much larger scale. 9/11 and the scamdemic are prime evidence of their barbaric monstrosity. They hve turned America into a lawless banana republic resembling Planet of the Apes and they have the mentalities of monkey brained Monster Apes.

      This is what happens when people don’t have food storage and are not prepared. This is what 95% of the people will face coming here soon.

      Instead of a peaceful demonstration, the rioters did this to themselves. Can’t eat those TV’s and furniture they looted. When a portion of the population can’t think and act like animals, they destroy themselves.

      See a common thread here?

      BTW humanity is a very primitive specie
      Some more than others

        They do the same thing here. Burn down their stores etc. then cry. Let them die. Imagine a world without nee gerrs…

      • Frank Thoughts says:

        When you have never invented or created the tools of modern civilisation then it all just seems like ‘magical’ white man’s baubles. And since it seems as if the magical white man’s baubles come from a limitless supply of baubles it makes sense to just steal, and wait for the next load of freebies from the magical white man.

        Unfortunately, that’s how most people think in Africa.

        Concepts like work hard, save, study, invent seem a waste of time when your food comes free from American farmers, your government is funded by USAID, your smartest get generous scholarships to the West, and you can pop out as many babies as possible since some Western NGO will pay for their healthcare, school etc.

        That’s the reality and why irresponsible rioting in a pandemic will just increase.
