Happening Now : Man screams Allahu Akbar as taxies are being burnt in Eastern Cape.

A distressing situation is currently unfolding in the Eastern Cape area as some form of violence and property damage is occuring. A video from the scene shows us the site but does not clear too much up. Below is the video and an explanation of it, however remember that this is a developing situation so please hit the follow button for more updates as i upload them.

The distressing video :

A video, which you can watch by clicking on the link below, shows us a violent event happening. According to the accompanying post the event is currently happening in Durban Road in Eastern Cape ( For clarity, the name of the road is Durban Road, however this event has nothing to do with Durban City).

In the video we see multiple taxi's burning and shots being fired while someone shouts Allahu Akbar. This phrase is synonymous with Muslims, however while we cannot confirm what is happening in the video, we cannot claim that Muslims have any involvement in this event. Below is my opinion on the incident currently occuring. However if you want to watch the video, click the link down below.

My opinion :

Violent strikes and protests are very common in South Africa so seeing a scene like this is not surprising at all. However the phrase being shouted could mean that this strike has something to do with religion. Until we have any solid proof I would like to ask people to refrain from posting fake news and instead wait for facts. If you live in the Eastern Cape please stay away from Durban Road. If you are close than please leave the area or seek shelter immediately.
