South Africa is facing its fourth day of unrest as protests calling for the release of the country’s jailed former president descended into chaos.
Buildings were set ablaze, businesses were looted, and roads were blocked as citizens took to the streets with sticks, demanding Jacob Zuma’s release from jail.
Jacob Zuma, 79, handed himself to police on Wednesday, July 7, to begin a 15-month prison sentence for contempt of court.
Protests calling for his release started onÂ Friday, July 9, in KwaZulu-Natal,Â the home ofÂ Jacob Zuma.
The protests then spreadÂ to Gauteng province, which includes Johannesburg, South Africaâ€™s largest city.
More police officers have been deployed to affected areas to monitor major highways entrances and search vehicles.
