South Africa riots: What’s happening and why?

Africa

Dozens of people have died in oubreaks of looting and rioting in parts of South Africa. Shopping centres and businesses in the Gauteng and Kwazulu-Natal provinces have been ransacked.

The violence followed the jailing of former President Jacob Zuma last week. Police are over-stretched and the military has been deployed to support them. The BBC’s Vumani Mkhize in Johannesburg explains the situation.
