“Yesterday’s events brought a lot of sadness. The number of people who have died in KwaZulu-Natal alone stands at 26. Many of them died from being trampled on during a stampede while people were looting items,” he said.

The violence which started in KwaZulu-Natal, Zuma’s province, spread to Gauteng province on Sunday with many shops looted and several injured.

Looting was, however, said to have continued on Tuesday in Johannesburg shopping malls in township areas.

Zuma was sentenced to 15 months in prison for contempt of court following his refusal to appear before a graft panel.
