June 8, 2015

Johannesburg – A bottle store and a KFC outlet were looted in Dube, Soweto, on Sunday night, apparently during a protest against Eskom installing pre-paid electricity meters in the area, authorities said.

Locals, apparently residents of the Dube Hostel, also tried to break open two ATMs next to the KFC, but police arrived and the culprits fled empty-handed, Gauteng traffic police spokesperson Obed Sibasa said on Monday morning.

He said the violence began at around 19:00.

Police spokesperson Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said no arrests were made and nobody was injured.
