Caught In The Act: 20 Shocking Photos Of Bold Daylight Looting In South Africa


To say that the situation on the xenophobic violence has degenerated to a state of dry bones is like stating the obvious. Africans are left to wonder if this is the same South Africa that the great Madiba held together for so long and succeeded in making a rainbow nation. As the locals have vowed not to stop until every Foreign National is booted out of South Africa and their possessions divided as an inheritance among the locals, the looting rampages have become a thing fun for them.

As the violence rages, locals have seized the opportunity of the fear that made foreigners desert their shops to loot as many shops as they can find without fear or mercy. This seems to be the actual root cause of all the violence in the first place. The inhuman acts of the looting were caught on camera to the surprise of the entire world. The photos you are about to see will leave you speechless but then a picture is worth a thousand words right?
