People panic buying as few shops open after brazen looting
As businesses count the losses done by the rampant looting, reports of some citizens panic buying have emerged.
Pictures of people queuing outside some malls for basic food such as bread have been doing the rounds on social media.
Mandy Wiener speaks to Eyewitness News reporter Mia Lindeque.
We are seeing a bit of panic buying and this is after BP and Shell South African Petroleum Refineries which supplies a third of the countries fuel raised concerns about moving fuel between KZN and Gauteng.Mia Lindeque, Reporter - Eyewitness News
People are frantically buying. Even when things are stabilised, it will take time for the petrol and fuel to move inland again.Mia Lindeque, Reporter - Eyewitness News
