Civil unrest and tensions in South Africa

Overnight in Tembisa, South Africa, a clinic was burned down, foreign-owned shops looted, roads blocked and some vehicles damaged. Protests began after a security and eviction service disconnected illegal electricity in several houses.

Civil unrest is also occurring in Maboloka, where foreign-owned businesses were looted and a council office set on fire after water supply problems.

Sitata reminds travellers to minimize risk by avoiding large public gatherings and demonstrations due to unpredictability of these situations.
