Part of his statement said: “This has been brewing for some time now.

“South Africa has been a ticking time bomb.

“Passing judgement from our comfortable homes about how people who are angry and less fortunate should behave is utterly ridiculous, some families’ reality is far more difficult than ours, so I can’t judge anyone.

“I am totally against looting.
