A baby nearly died in the burning City Life building in Durban but was miraculously rescued by a good South African.

This video which has gone viral was upload on social media on Tuesday afternoon.

From the video, people were seen screaming and shouting for help

the cause of the fire was not disclosed.

Meanwhile, a chaotic situation has taken place in Protea Glen as police arrive at a scene of people looting in several stores nearby.

Reports say that Police Minister Bheki Cele is expected to be in Alexandra this afternoon. SANDF members are in the area monitoring the situation.

Already, Security forces in South Africa are struggling to contain spreading unrest, with dozens dead after violent scenes that President Cyril Ramaphosa admitted have “rarely [been] seen before in the history of our democracy”.

 

The immediate trigger for the violence was the jailing last week of Jacob Zuma, the former president, for contempt of court for his refusal to attend an inquiry into corruption during his nine-year tenure.

 

Zuma, who still has strong support within the ruling African National Congress and in his home state of KwaZulu-Natal, has denied all wrongdoing and says the charges are politically motivated.

 

South Africa’s domestic spy agency is investigating whether its own former agents had orchestrated violence in KwaZulu-Natal out of loyalty to Zuma, said Ayanda Dlodlo, the state security minister, at a briefing on Tuesday.

A leading business family related to Zuma denied this week that it was behind the unrest. The province is the former president’s power base and has a long history of political violence.

While analysts suggest the violence may have initially been fanned by Zuma’s supporters, high youth unemployment and economic disruption from the pandemic have also fuelled the looting and unrest.

Riots that began in KwaZulu Natal have since spread to other areas including Gauteng, the economic hub that includes Johannesburg.
