Fierce fights have rocked the streets of South Africa as furious youth draw in police and military officers in running battles.
The violence was triggered by the imprisoning of former president Jacob Zuma over contempt of court.
Dissidents allied to Jacob Zuma have been scouring shopping malls and other local business premises while demanding his release, leaving investors with enormous losses.
A short clip taken during the fierce fights shows one of the protestors carrying a casket that he had looted from a business premise.
President Ramaphosa has since condemned the ongoing violence and given stern warning to the protestors.
“What we are witnessing now are opportunistic acts of criminality, with groups of people instigating chaos merely as a cover for looting and theft,” he said.
