Since last week, parts of KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng saw thousands of people looting and vandalizing shops – leaving many business owners devastated. The “Destiny” hitmaker shared his opinion about the looting, although stating that he would usually refrain from speaking out due to the backlash, but this time, this isn’t the case.

4. Africa’s Covid deaths up 43% in a week – WHO
Africa has recorded a 43% rise in Covid-19 deaths this past week, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). “This is a clear warning sign that hospitals in the most impacted countries are reaching a breaking-point,” the WHO’s Africa director, Matshidiso Moeti said.
Many countries lack oxygen, intensive care units and specialized staff. Namibia, South Africa, Tunisia, Uganda and Zambia accounted for most deaths, as reported by the WHO. Medical staff were urged to use the steroid treatment dexamathasone that could help severely ill patients recover faster. The drug can cut the risk of death by a third for patients on ventilators, and a fifth for those in need of supplemental oxygen. More than 150,000 Covid-19 deaths have been reported in Africa since the beginning of the pandemic. This accounts for 4% of deaths reported globally.
5. Leicester City: Ryan Bertrand joins from Southampton on free transfer
