After a few seconds into the video clip, the viewer sees flashes and hears gunshots fired.-
Chaos erupted across Pretoria on Monday after the ruling party announced that incumbent mayor Kgosientso Ramokgopa would be ousted by former cabinet minister Thoko Didiza. The rioters who live in Venda-Tswane and Pedi-tribal areas, object to the Zulu-speaking Ms Didiza. Protesters vowed to continue on their destructive path until the ANC reverses their decison to put up Didiza as mayoral candidate for Pretoria.Tania du Preez from the Pretoria Crime and Accident Group confirmed on Tuesday afternoon that police were preparing to fire tear gas in Booysens if the situation worsened. “We are waiting for police to confirm in which areas. We will keep the community updated.”
