Looting
Looters flee from a police officer at a shop in the Springfield Value Centre in Durban, KwaZulu Natal. A riot erupted in parts of South Africa in July over former President Jacob Zuma’s imprisonment, resulting in many businesses being looted and burnt. At least 337 people died. Businesses made their plea to President Cyril Ramaphosa to intervene and he deployed the arm to the affected areas to bring stability. Even though this looted and damaged shopping centre where this photo was taken will be rebuilt and fully functional by the spring of 2022, some small businesses have closed down permanently. Hundreds of people lost their jobs raising the rate of unemployment to 34.4%, that is 7.8 million jobless people. The whole damage to businesses is worth $1.7 billion (25 billion rand), according to the state insurance company handling the claims. Photo: SANDILE NDLOVU

اللصوص يفرون من ضابط شرطة في متجر في سبرينغفيلد فاليو سنتر في ديربان، بمحافظة كوازولو ناتال. اندلعت أعمال شغب في أجزاء من جنوب إفريقيا في شهر يوليو بسبب سجن الرئيس السابق جاكوب زوما، مما أدّى إلى نهب وحرق الكثير من الشركات ووفاة ما لا يقل عن 337 شخصاً. فوجّهت الشركات نداءً إلى الرئيس سيريل رامافوزا للتدخل ونشر عناصره في المناطق المتضرّرة لإرساء الاستقرار. وعلى الرُّغم من أنّ مركز التسوق المنهوب والمتضرر الذي تم التقاط هذه الصورة فيه سيُعاد بناؤه ويعود إلى العمل بحلول ربيع عام 2022، فقد أغلقت بعض الشركات الصغيرة أبوابها بشكلٍ دائم. كما فقد مئاتُ الأشخاص وظائفهم مما رفع معدّل البطالة إلى 34.4% أي 7.8 مليون عاطلٍ عن العمل. يبلغ مجموع قيمة الأضرار التي لحقت بالشركات 1.7 مليار دولار (25 مليار راند)، وفقاً لشركة التأمين الحكومية التي تتلقى المطالبات وتعالجها. الصورة: سانديل ندلوفو
