FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “South Africa president rallies base as riot cleanup goes on • FRANCE 24 English” – below is their description.

#SouthAfrican President Cyril #Ramaphosa joined post-riot #clean-up efforts on Sunday as his government warned against vigilantism and sought to avert racial conflict following the unrest. The country was gripped by more than a week of chaos that claimed more than 200 lives as looters ransacked shopping centres and unidentified groups torched key industrial infrastructure and blocked trade routes. The violence was the worst in post-apartheid South Africa and erupted after former president Jacob Zuma was sentenced to 15 months in jail for snubbing a corruption inquiry.
