“Fellow South Africans,
There is another matter of great national importance that I wish to address.
In the past few days, we have seen sporadic but increasingly violent protests in some parts of the country.
Key infrastructure like national roads have been affected, slowing down the transportation of goods and services that keep our economy running.
Property has been destroyed. Cars have been stoned. People have been intimidated and threatened, and some have even been hurt.
These acts are endangering lives and damaging our efforts to rebuild the economy.” – President Ramaphosa
