South Africa’s Looted Coffin Recovered

After days of looting in the KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) and Gauteng provinces of South Africa, the cleanup is in full swing and like a bad hangover, people caught up in the frenzy have realised the implications of having a house full of unpaid-for-goods.

What started out as a protest to free former president Jacob Zuma quickly descended into violent destruction of infrastructure and the looting of shops and goods.

President Cyril Ramaphosa described the unrest as a “failed insurrection” attempt in an address to the nation.

The police and soldiers sent in to quell the violence are now on a recovery mission — retrieving a mountain of stolen goods.

Police minister Bheki Cele said the recovered goods included beds, electronic items, mag-wheels for vehicles and even a casket.

Efforts continued on Wednesday, with many of the looters having abandoned goods after it became clear that homes would be raided in search of stolen items.
