3:34 am
angry crowds have looted sharps birds down businesses and disrupted for by change their fears. now some areas could run out of food. as a result, at least 72 people has been killed and hundreds arrested in nearly a week of unrest. we're bringing our guests in just a moment, but 1st this update from probably the miller in johannesburg. this is alexandra township in the north of janice, where we've seen significant looting and rioting over the past few days, specifically down the road where businesses were looted. many of the buildings sits a life. there has been a significant police presence, but really not enough to stop these incidence of looting. the army has been deployed. we don't see them here today. but it's thought that perhaps soldiers on the ground has managed to calm the situation at least to some extent. and just
3:35 am
behind us, we're seeing business owners and community members now returning to try and assess the damage. also potentially clean up and try to restore some sort of calm. but really it's too late and the government is facing a lot of criticism for acting too late. many solve africans, many organization thing more should have been done early on, especially given that they will warning immediately during and after the arrest. the former president jacob's duma. now it's his own risk and imprisonment that's bought. some of the riots we saw specifically in cars who natal, they've now sprayed to the province of halting. and while it was that incident, that might have sparked the riots that now moved into more than just the political situation. and the prism imprisonment of former president jacob's fema
3:36 am
we're seeing rioting, and looting, specifically links to the economic situation in south africa. the people here say close at 19 locked down, have left them desperate. they've lost job, they can't get job. and this is why we've seen businesses looted people a desperate and there are concerns around this increasing socio economic challenges that the government is facing. and while the deployment of soldiers and police might qual, protest for now, they've got to confirm that if those challenges aren't adequately addressed, unresolved south africa may continue to see similar uprising and unrest. the miller miller for inside storage hannah's book, or the south african president, serial from our poster, has deployed the military to support local police, his blame the unrest on criminals, and called on people to stand against the violence. although these may be
3:37 am
opportunistic acts of looting driven by hardship and poverty. the poor and marginalized bad that are to made branch of the destruction that is currently underway. as i said, shops have been looted an infrastructure has been destroyed. this means that our sick cannot get medication from pharmacies. food does not, rich supermarket shelves and health workers cannot go to work. now is fake. i listened to what some south africans had to say. why, why? why suit them apart. so when he's processing that takes forever,
3:38 am
he's way too slow to act his way too low to it because he's busy processing that does not attend to process. this is attend to act. you cannot say we don code, don't we condemn and you stop it. i have my employment for people not want to tap into those. i mean it's, let's say no employment very high. but when you do things like this, then it becomes more high. when you, when me locked down again, this was bound to happen because the longer you leave the people hungry, the events would take place and i don't think it's only about the whole economy and what's happening on the i think people are generally hungry and they need some type
3:39 am
of income, i won't even say income, i'll just say food. ah, well let's bring in our guess for today's inside story in cape town, bon guy named been one a, a member of the african national congress, and a former national security adviser to the police minister in south africa, into harrisburg, floyd, she bumble deputy president of the economic freedom fighters party and a member of parliament. and also in cape county marie fee, a professor of african studies at the university of free state and head of program at the institute for justice and reconciliation. gentlemen, welcome to you all. thank you for being with us on inside story floyd. if i can start with you in johannesburg, what is the cause of the unrest in south africa today and who is responsible for it? look just to give you some background 1st want to say good things to view us in the background is that day for the longest time we have had in the governance named him
3:40 am
in the past in the for going to 7 years, which has been a saving over a government which has been kept going to economy capacity. so you know that party ended officially informally many need before, but he couldn't make up our d g yet at the freak. that is why our south as d. s were funded until the 15 as an organization which was fighting now for economic emancipation and will always holding the sifting gains to government accountable will be held rather than to zoom in a counter. bueley pushed a and fought against the corruption and wrong with you. it was government and they literally wasn't as the president of the public. and then as the capture commissioner powder was established, investigate option, and he's president and other legation that $500.00 range was put in that isn't
3:41 am
just about 5 years or less. and when the commission of impaired or published, we as the some of the live that should come attention 1000000 when we went to suite them to my to, to appear before the commission of the refused under bases is that he doesn't want to appear before a judge me perceived by the conflict that quote, number of listen, she from some time be right. and then because she did something unusual would be picked up from the normal procedures and rose and then gave him a sentence of 15 demands. and that's the portez that we would missing is with the freak and the nature of the purchase is not unusual, right? they will dislike. but it is that it's not now the public institutions, lake schools and laboratories. and when it's time offices that normally get banned when they would this protest,
3:42 am
now it's models that are being ted. it's actually is that we have seen that we have seen the pictures have been the pictures have been quite surprising and really for, for people who live out of south africa to see such scenes out of south africa is quite surprising and really unsettling. now the e, f, f floyd, your party and its leader julius my, lemme have been accused of fueling some of the unrest and the looting. what do you respond to that? not the is not involved in the protest. we have not said anything. we've never said that to be must cortez what, who objected to was the uses of the soldiers, because we understand that the soul, jess must only be brought in whether these ex tomorrow, but it's not for him to madison 1000000 metro that can be handled. but the police know that they couldn't handle the situation in the last few days. they were overwhelmed. guard did not being an exit to missile.
3:43 am
and mckennan utilized the police force. so only the police in the provinces that way affected where the ones were responsible in response, there was never yet a deployment of police force from what the progress is to come and lead was in the areas that were affected to den, to rush for it. so just now a deep national will against participants was purchased in some instances can be understood within never will hold in high levels of unemployment. and the job listen is that generally in defense. so if i had to bend and, and also the capacity of the government, but much more 15, let's talk about this floor. let's bring in bon gunny in cape town, bull gunny. what do you think are the reasons for this violence that south africa is witnessing today? president from
3:44 am
a post earlier this week described as ethnic mobilization, which a lot of people criticize them for saying that he was adding fuel to the fire. what, what do you make of this? and what do you think are the root causes? office unrest in south africa. well, thank you very much. i think it just, it's important to just make it clear that this issue indeed was marked or treated by the cause just cause issues, not of course, judgment against, from a precedent zone. however, to characterize what is going on as protests, we look to certainly be accurate, a protest, you know, lee, people get together even if it's not their minds law cods, or. ready some trumping there much, and you see it here, you have a group of individuals who are still mean shopping malls and another. let me show
3:45 am
commercial areas. look protest. these. what is president rebel was as up as correct raised hope which for me to crime. however, between the trigger has to be explained, floyd has alluded, we can't run away from the fact that there are problems with the economy in south africa. issues, unemployment, the wealth in the quality and all the relief issues, whole, but hunger. of course, it's not a new phenomenon. i mean i was, he had some time being interviewed on the metal. what was been trim was an awful big tex get for the base conky june. they can spread very fast
3:46 am
again, be actual issue is that we have to confront our unique quality and joblessness, especially amongst you. and so the president statement, in effect, dealt with that as far as the city issues. i think her upset booth, with alia assessments, which i think anyone who is with us with, you know, any salt will, will say that at this point, that assessment has shown not to be accurate. that's not the city ok. rab camrie fee, bon gunny, i think, is right in saying that we haven't seen protests, per se, as we have in the past, you know, with plaque cod been political chance and so on. this hasn't been the case this year. what is happening right now in south africa? is this a political problem, or is it an economic problem? well, there, there are multiple dimensions to the story. so there isn't necessarily one side
3:47 am
that is absolutely correct or accurate south africa since independence has been experiencing protests on quite a regular basis, back to some referred to south africa, the protest capitol of the world, particularly around service delivery. so this is nothing new. what is new is the scale and the scope and the beach of the products. we just spread across 2 provinces at least, and potentially more going forward. so that is really the crux of the budget. there are different dimensions to this. and at the core of it though, i would say both floyd and barney, i've got the right analysis of the social economic inequality that can be traced quite far back to the the legacy of apartheid and a racialized exclusion and the,
3:48 am
in the ability to put it bluntly open open governing body. the n c 2 in fact, turn around the situation into 227 here with governance. but, but we're still be the zoom years that we're technically lost. and in fact, me. so i regret that. but can you talk about the legacy of apartheid? i'm apologizing for interrupting you. you talk about the legacy of apartheid. to what extent, though, i mean, does the legacy of apartheid play into this? as you say is the south african national, the african national congress has been in power in south africa for 30 years. and they came with those promises of addressing poverty and inequality which they haven't done apartheid ended 30 years ago. why is it that 30 is on? we're still talking about this today. well, apart, i did end in 1994, technically speaking. but in fact, if you come to south africa, you'll see the spatial apartheid is very much alive and well privatization of housing, privatization of health care, education, infrastructure access,
3:49 am
it's very much alive. so the inability to do the effect, the structural inequality that was put in place by a part i risk firmly and that the government to be frank, the society, the why does society bill also has a responsibility to impact push monitor and ensure that the changes that are necessary to restore the human dignity of the people who are now looting in the malls. and the shops in the, in the warehouses is back with a cheap but this is still very much a work in progress. but a sense of isolation is what has led to this deprivation that we are seeing now it's peeling out on the street, and this is not an excuse for criminality. but i think if we take a very clinical militarized police approach to, to this issue,
3:50 am
we will fail to understand the underlying socio economic drivers and the cycle, social and traumatic dimensions of what is actually causing the social abreast. and the uprising that we see at the moment it's south africa, would be incomplete analysis. and it would lead to into an incomplete prognosis. ok, well let's have a closer look if we can at the underlying grievances in south africa. many still live in poverty and suffer from inequality decades on to the end of apartheid. as you've heard, the world bank says the rich is 20 percent control, nearly 70 percent of all resources. unemployment is at a record high of 32.6 percent and it's more than 46 percent among young people. inflation hit a 30 months high in may and prices of goods are worrying. while the government has said $35000000000.00 was looted from state funds during jacob zoom as 9 year presidency, and corona vice restrictions have worse and long standing economic problems. while
3:51 am
south africa features are resurgence in infections fueled by the delta variant, floyd. so we know that there underlying issues of course, how does the south african government address this today? look at the fact of the matter is that the poor 99 before the government has not disrupted the economy power relations that defined a part of pete. so we are living in a new part of the way those that controlled wealth and had access to reaches a tri name. this will continue to have the power, but 20 percent, which the world bank is possibly cottages are one of $95.00. the same white people who were privileged because of the party policies that did not that regard to black people as human beings or just as a petitions effect please. and that's what comes in the minds without meaningful. right. so the biggest problem is that there's never been disruptions of the
3:52 am
economic politicians, particularly in terms of ownership of the land in terms of the distribution of the economy. so that does it have central crisis and also an incapable and speed that always speaks i totally g and is always engaged in p r exercises, but they are fighting current. they're going to provide jobs to this and none of that is happening. this is where the classes are, but what is it which i think was after. but protest always take different forms. and so right, every time the protest is that the government will always characterize it as criminal. whether it's a protest delivery or then of a big i will protest for my kitchen of when the politics it is already taken. for me, it's not just that when i put the put of them are going to lead a textbook or what does it do? finishing of put them a printer, blah, blah pod,
3:53 am
danny on the phone and detect the phone with this ticket. now why did i characterize justin floyd? let's hear from bonnie bonnie floyd, pointing clearly the finger of blame at the government and the african national congress body. and today what a lot of people asking is why b a and c hasn't been able to fulfill the promises it made at the end of the apartheid era to address these issues of inequality and poverty. why hasn't been able to do so? well, i'm not here to speak on the amc of course i'm in bikes. it isn't as a modest i think. what is important is to tell the truth. that's the point of departure. so i agree with floyd to elijah to chance that we have poverty issues. we have well inequality issue and so forth. and we do need to have a situation where we have a different look at and the different way in which we manage our economy.
3:54 am
we have currently we are under current team and we have the levels from $1.00 to $5.00. at this point we're at middle school, which is really of the issue. so the peroration effects really what i'm not all really functioning in our pre k as a result of the delta variant across which in many countries we're going through with bet you have unemployment as i've mentioned before, especially of the you we've heard about the issue, what what are the, what are the solutions? well, well, immediately we have to look carefully at how the economy is being curren humanity. we can't hide from that. is it correct? have this serious was security the program?
3:55 am
you know, structural adjustment that we have for more funding, finance, ministry. is it correct? does it also be issues or not? shouldn't we have the government being the talked here? investor be stage when the private sector, you sludge, right? being corrupts. and we should look at bed, very agent when the president did, number 2, we're going to look at, at such an issue and, and those are part of the, should that limit be looked at it very, very importantly. bed variously issue mentioning the really lead. so we can police make her in so far as the budget is concerned. okay. because the beatles and not equipment. so i can to not have, for instance, in now. right. i did get, well, did take a long time for the police to get the situation under control. let. let me give the last word to tim marie fee in came town. tim, you know,
3:56 am
looking from the outside south africa is of course a role model for the african continent for emergency, for emerging nations also. and it's quite unsettling to see what's happening today . what do you think needs to change? we've heard from president, from a poster. his tone hasn't been a conciliatory one so far. what is he going to have to say and do the com, the situation. the president pulls himself, has acknowledged the failures of a and see so this is not a se bashing card for intention that we're having here. the point is it. ready is not what to ship moment for the country. be social unrest is symptomatic, it really is a symptom is not really underlying cause, which suggests that a government has to, in fact turn, it's much more introspective. the towards the fact that there are certain socio economic issues that really remain unaddressed. when people lived in squalor and
3:57 am
others lives in relative affluence, you are creating a situation of, of tension and crisis. so there's a lot of work to be done in terms of data looking to find out. in fact, what are some of the primary demands. but we paid them for a while, for example, the institute for justice and reconciliation publishes the south africa reconciliation, barometer that tells you for last 10 years that there's been a demand from particularly those in the lower income groups that the, the quality within society has to be addressed as a murderer, urgency and that means government resources, the amount that are being dedicated, perhaps to the military and to defense needs to be allocated to social programs, housing, health care, education, infrastructure, access to telecommunications. all the options that you want to have effective peace building and sustainable society going forward. thank you so much gentlemen. for a very interesting discussion board guy named ben dwan, a floyd shamble,
