The expert panel that reviewed last year’s July civil unrest in South Africa has found there were significant failures on the part of that country’s government, including the national security council chaired by President Cyril Ramaphosa, to anticipate, prevent or disrupt the planned and orchestrated violence. Over 350 people were killed during the anarchy in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng, with businesses looted and destroyed, leading to a loss of over R50 billion in the economy. According to Eyewitness News, the report points to spectacular failures by not only the security cluster in the country but even a blatant disregard of the national intelligence estimate.
