Preliminary estimates of the economic impact revealed that the unrest had cost the metro “R1 billion in terms of loss of stock and about R15 billion of damage to property and equipment”, Kaunda said. Schools burnt down The rioters have not spared the schools as well. Warehouses looted In another video, a warehouse of Bidvest Logistics was under attack by the rioters and looters. ‘It could be very well a scene from a movie In another video, a large mob of rioters was seen moving towards the police guarding the road. The Twitter user who posted the video said, “This could’ve been a deleted scene from Dawn of the Dead.” ‘Famine is imminent’ Many believe that such destruction will lead to famine in the country. In another visual, gallons of milk was emptied from the container trucks onto the road as the depots that were supposed to take them in were destroyed by the rioters. The damage to the infrastructure is going to overwhelm the government of South Africa in the coming days. https://www.opindia.com/2021/07/south-africa-riots-r16-billion-worth-of-properties-looted-or-damaged-durban-alone/ Thousands of gallons of milk were dumped into the sea, more than once in the past, because there was a surplus. Tons of butter was also destroyed. The big business owners (guess who they were. - clue, starts with a J) They choose to destroy, rather than give it away for free. Nothing ever changes. Maybe, the peaceful protests in South Africa MIGHT bring change but it's very unlikely. It depends if they can bring the entire government down. Question then is what despots will replace them? I remember a survey of Blacks in what is now Zimbabwe, some years ago, It was almost 90% of the Blacks that said "We want the White government back." They would never dare to do such a survey in SA. All the blacks who worked for the company that employed me, refused to take a day off to hear Mandela speak. They unanimously said that he should have been hanged. Many, many Blacks didn't want a Black government. They had seen it all before in the rest of Africa. Thet knew what was coming. I feel the same sympathy for the Whites who stayed in SA, to work their arses off. to be raped, murdered and vilified. I have the same sympathy for the White morons that danced in the streets when Mugabe was forced into power. This is the same sympathy that I have for the cunts who have volunteered to be human guinea pigs by taking "The Jab". Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
