What lessons have been learned from unrest in South Africa? | Inside Story

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “What lessons have been learned from unrest in South Africa? | Inside Story” – below is their description.

For more than a week, South Africa had been beset by its worst violence since the end of apartheid.

While, the situation is largely calm now, the nation is still trying to come to terms with what happened.

The violence has killed at least 276 people and caused widespread destruction.

Hundreds of businesses were either looted or set on fire.

The unrest was sparked by the jailing of former president Jacob Zuma but expanded to include grievances about poverty and inequality.

Will the governing ANC review its policies to prevent such unrest in the future?
