. South Africa Zuma riots: What’s behind the violence and looting? « JO LEE MAGAZINE

BBC – Some are calling events over the last week democratic South Africa’s “darkest hour”.

Is it more than a spontaneous triggering of anger brought about by the jailing of former President Jacob Zuma? Many analysts say it is and that there is a “third force” sympathetic to the former president at play.

The government’s language too has changed significantly, from not saying much in the early days of the lawlessness to calling out what it says has been “economic sabotage”. Some commentators have even gone as far as to warn that the unrest has the hallmarks of an “attempted coup” and an “insurrection”.
