As the riots in KZN continue to devastate the region's infrastructure, the DA has taken to a campaign against the violence of looting that has been seen to accompany the ongoing riots.
In Soweto, DA supporters were spotted defending Maynard Mall from looters, adhering to the general message of peace amongst citizens that the party has attempted to push during these riots. Phoenix, Durban is one of the regions that has been hardest hit by the riots, causing not only damage to infrastructure, but harm to citizens as well.
DA Leader, John Steenhuisen recently took to Phoenix and Chatsworth in Durban to assess the damage caused by the civil unrest. Accompanying him was another DA Member of Parliament, Dean Macpherson, who shared about their experience in the region, saying:
"Another painful day on the ground...visiting wards to assess the damage & thank our hero’s manning the front lines. The situation is very bad still, particularly in Phoenix & Chatsworth. We desperately need more boots on the ground."
