In this month of July, the country was left shocked after a large number of people went on a wild spree and looted from clothes to coffins at shopping malls. Noticeable most of the looters stole food but now the men in blue are out there taking back whatever had been stolen. Well, Zenande Mfenyana can’t help but feel sorry for those who looted food.
Several arrests were made and many goods were taken back with South Africa witnessing law officials going to informal settlements to take back whatever was stolen. Too many it wasn’t a pleasant sight, even The Queen actress weighed in to voice how she felt.
According to her, it broke her heart to see food being taken back from the poor especially those who have kids. Taking to Twitter Zenande wrote: “The police taking away the food though. Couldn’t they just leave that food for the kids? This is so sad.”

Exactly my sister, I don’t feel bad for them. If u feel sorry for the looters then u should go n donate food for them from ur own pockets. If strangers can come n steal ur groceries at ur home because they are hungry would u allow it.
