Looters will kill me if I get in their way – Tshwane shop ownerlooter

Pretoria – “I decided that I was not going to leave my home and come here, they can kill me if I get in their way,” said Mabopane business owner Jonas Kabinde on Wednesday.

Kabinde operates a Multiserv franchise from Morula Shopping Complex, which was raided by looters after darkness fell on Tuesday night.

“I am worried about my business – it is my whole life,” he said.

Many businesses in townships across Tshwane have remained closed on Wednesday amid fears of looting.

A Pep Store, Kabinde’s neighbour, had storefront glass smashed in and shelves overturned by looters who stole all they could carry.

“Yesterday we closed at 1pm because we heard people were on their way to the complex [to loot it] so they advised us to close.”

“At about 7pm last night somebody who lives in the area phoned me and said that people were trying to break the fence at the complex and I must go and check my shop. I decided that I was not going to leave my home and come here; they can kill me if I get in their way,” he said.

Kabinde said he feared for his life.

“If they took this [the shop] I would have nothing left. I don’t know what to expect but I am worried because I don’t know when this thing is going to end,” he added.

Residents went on the rampage while protesting against the nomination of Thoko Didiza as the ANC mayoral candidate in Tshwane.

Residents and party members want incumbent mayor Kgosientso Ramokgopa to continue leading the city beyond August 3.

Roads were littered with debris indicating the destruction that took place in the township on Tuesday night.
