South Africa’s president

Days of protests, looting and riots in South Africa could lead to food and medicine shortages in the next few weeks, President Cyril Ramaphosa said on Monday.

Police said the unrest had intensified after former President Jacob Zuma challenged his 15-month prison term in the country’s top court.

The sporadic pro-Zuma protests that broke out when he handed himself over last week have escalated into looting and arson, mainly in the province of KwaZulu-Natal (KZN). Officials said 489 suspects in the two provinces had been arrested and all government agencies had been mobilized.
