The unrest that brought central Pretoria to a standstill yesterday has continued today with the Pretoria Shutdown in Sunnyside. Riled citizens have gathered outside a block of flats that is allegedly suspected to house drug dealers.
Citizens united yesterday in Pretoria in answer to the death of a taxi operator who had attempted to stop an alleged drug exchange.
Briefly.co.za reported that the CBD had been brought to a halt, with taxi drivers distancing themselves from the looting and subsequent arson that targeted shops by foreign nationals, saying that they had taken a stand against crime.
The protest continued today, focusing on Sunnyside with residents uniting outside of a building they claim housed notorious drug dealers.
In footage seen of the incident, law enforcement can be seen scaling the side of the building in an attempt to search it.
Take a look at footage from today's protests below:
