SA violence: Calm in Eastern Cape....just cold


Eastern Cape Premier, Oscar Mabuyane, says police are investigating the origins of messages calling for KZN-style protests in the province.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, Mabuyane called on peace-loving and law-abiding citizens of the Eastern Cape to report any attempts to fuel violent protests in their communities.

He also commended the ordinary people of the province for refusing to emulate the violence and rampant looting taking place in Kwazulu Natal and Gauteng.

Mabuyane also applauded the taxi industry for taking a stand against anarchy in cities and towns that will affect their business.

The South African National Taxi Council in the province including the Taxi Industry at large have called on all their members and drivers to defend properties and deal decisively with those disturbing business.

The council's deputy Chairperson Gabs Mtshala says if malls and business centres are destroyed they won't have passengers to transport.

He says if this carries on, their taxis would be repossessed and they will never recover from that.

Mtshala says the industry has already suffered losses during the pandemic.
