As the ongoing riots overwhelm the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) and the South African Police Services (SAPS), private security forming a part of the Vision Tactical organisation, an "Innovative private security company providing integrated solutions" established within South Africa, have answered the call for reinforcements.
South African citizens without any professional affiliation with the police or any sort of security force have also aided efforts against the ongoing looting and damage to property, some even standing guard in front of malls or business infrastructure, preventing looters from entering.
Yaseen Theba, Director at Vision Tactical shared a statement regarding his team's efforts against the lootings, saying:
"When days roll into nights & one day into the next: time seems to stand still & the darkness of violence & torture is imprinted in our minds without a way of erasing what has happened. We've done all we can as a team who is dedicated to our nation & the communities we serve"
