HIGHWAYS blocked‚ motorists stoned‚ shops looted‚ the city centre evacuated and police missing in action. This was the scene in SA’s capital city on Tuesday.


Pretoria’s central business district was left nearly deserted on Tuesday afternoon as fears that political violence, which has gripped the surrounding townships, would spread to the city.


Businesses along entire city blocks were shut down‚ with iron grills firmly locked. Even hawkers were missing from their stands, with police moving into the streets.


Since Monday evening, marauding mobs have ransacked‚ looted and torched businesses‚ buses‚ trucks and cars, barricading all arterial roads leading into the city.
