The protesters claimed that the Pakistani-owned shops were responsible for selling them the rotten food, but Zola pointed out that these were the same shops that protesters were looting.

Briefly.co.za learned that Zola went as far as to say that people are lazy if they believe that foreigners took away their jobs.

Zola took to social media to comment on the situation where he acknowledged that residents had the right to protest about the quality of the food sold to them but questioned their motives behind looting the shops.
