1. We all saw the #destruction caused by visible #looting in #SAUnrest & communities are reeling from the impact. But about 1000 times of what it will cost to repair last week’s damage, was “invisibly” looted through #StateCapture & #corruption. Here are some highlights
2. According to @ShadowWorldInv1 the #ArmsDeal of the 1990’s cost SA an estimated R2,2 billion looted to pay bribes and kickbacks. To date nothing has been recovered. Money that could have changed the poor’s lives wasted on #GrandScaleLooting.
3. In 2015 @CompComSA found #construction companies #GroupFive, #WBHO, #BasilRead, Murray&Roberts, #Aveng & #StefanuttiStocks guilty of #colluding when building 2010 FIFA World Cup stadiums. This added R14 billion to construction costs. (Your taxmoney!)

This is literally the smartest thing I’ve seen all week
#looting #SouthAfrica

Although I’m pretty sure sunflower oil is flammable, a lot of soap and water would probably be a more viable solution

#KZNshutdown WATCH: Scores of motorists are queuing at South Coast Ultra City (Umgababa). This is one of the few fuel stations that are operational (in eThekwini) following #looting sprees that have affected various businesses in KZN. @NkoRaphael
More motorists appear to be joining these lengthy queues. Petrol attendants have told EWN that no one is allowed to purchase fuel costing more than R500 in a bid to ensure fairness. However, there are fears that not all motorists will get fuel here today. @NkoRaphael

@JackPosobiec Mostly 3 provinces. Affecting most malls near poor settlements.
Those are NOT live rounds being fired.
But we are on the brink of collapse.
The state has no solution besides the usual BS Statements.
Mostly this is about poverty, joblessness.
We are a morally bankrupt place
@JackPosobiec Triggered by the jailing of a prominent Zulu. That was just the last straw. These looters couldn’t care about Zuma. He’s an excuse.
They are starving. Others are simply opportunists just like the ANC National ‘leadership’. Corruption is coming home to roost.
Pray for us.
@JackPosobiec Pls don’t make comparisons to riots in Portland etc. Africa holds the capacity for Rwanda type genocide at all times. A failed state is hell on Earth. Indians in KZN province face a genocide of this doesn’t stop soon. Foreigners will follow. Other Africans will be murdered.

@JoeBiden .@realDonaldTrump & @VP Mike Pence are right
... "You won't be safe in Joe Biden's America"

And here's the proof
@JoeBiden @realDonaldTrump @VP Calling riots 'peaceful protest' then setting up a (Split a donation between 70+ community bail funds) to bailout protestors
@JoeBiden @realDonaldTrump @VP Why would 'Peaceful Protestors' need a bailout fund across Democracts states?
Why would international donations be accepted for riots

Biden supported the protesting, soon as the Protestors turned Portland upside down, he's saying "none of this #rioting #looting #fires is protesting"

Too Late! all of the above & more has happened. People not fooled by Democrats 11th hr trying to create order out of chaos /1
Biden portrayed frail old guy with cognitive decline, meanwhile the #DomesticTerrorist protestors throw out demands (#DoAsWeSay or we will continue rioting) threats

#Coercion #Harassment

Where is @chicagosmayor Lori Lightfoot while #Chicago is being looted + destroyed?

She “bravely” showed up to a beach because naughty people weren’t social distancing!

What about the wide array of neighborhoods where people are murdered?! She checking on them?

I am reading Ahmed El Shamsy’s recent book on the impact of #printing on modern discourses on #Islamic scholarship. Like his previous book, it is extremely readable and insightful. I will post some questions and intriguing passages from the chapters that interest me most./1
In the introduction, the author tells us that he will cover the 19th c. which saw the marginalisation of the classical Islamic work, the adoption of printing & rebirth of the classical heritage. Muslim reformers reasserted the classical tradition to undermine the postclassical./2
I think ch. 1 will be the most interesting for me: it names two key factors in the marginalisation of the classical works: "the dramatic decline of traditional libraries and the voracious appetites and deep pockets of European collectors of Arabic books."(p.6)/3

أتت الشرطة بناءاً على إتصال يتهم شخصاً بالتزوير
المتهم شخص أسمر، يجلس في سيارته، وإسمه جورج فلويد
4 رجال شرطة أتوا وأخرجوه من سيارته وقيّدوه
يبدو أنه رفض الدخول إلى سيارة الشرطة
فطرحوه أرضاً، ووضع 3 منهم رُكَبَهُم على رقبته وجسده
ظل يقول لهم أنه لا يستطيع التنفس...حتى مات!
قالوا أنه قاوم إلقاء القبض عليه
لكن ظهرت مقاطع فيديو تظهر كذب كلامهم
إدارة الشرطة أعطت أولئك الأربعة إجازة مدفوعة الأجر
لكن إنتشار مقطع الفيديو أحدث هيجاناً كبيراً
فقررت الشرطة عزلهم
ومع تطور الأحداث قررت توجيه تهمة القتل لمن وضع ركبته على رقبة جورج
خرج مئات المتظاهرين في مدينة منيابوليس بولاية مينيسوتا
وقامت الشرطة بإستخدام الرصاص المطاطي والغاز المسيل للدموع
تم الهجوم على مركز شرطة ومحاصرة آخر
وتهشيم واجهات المحلات ونهب بعضها
وحدثت محاولات للسطو على بنك
وإنتقلت المظاهرات والفوضى إلى مدينة لوس أنجلوس بولاية كاليفورنيا

Cases of #pillage by corporate actors investigated and brought to justice are rare.

Very rare.

Still, TRIAL International in recent years has submitted no less than 4 such criminal cases to the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) of #Switzerland.
The first complaint concerned the role played by #Argor-Heraeus in refining several tonnes of gold illegally extracted from the #DRC.
The OAG decided in 2015 to close it down.
Not being a civil party, TRIAL was unable to appeal the decision.…
The second case, filed in 2016, concerns a Swiss businessman, Christoph Huber, currently under (very slow) investigation by the OAG for his role in the #looting of raw materials in the #DRC.…
