Lethabong, North West - Police fired teargas and rubber bullets to disperse a crowd of teenagers who were looting foreign-owned shops in Lethabong, near Rustenburg, on Tuesday night.
A gang of about 50 teenagers moved from one section of the township to another, looting shops before running away when a lone police Nyala arrived at the scene.
“Come on, the corner shop,” the group shouted, attacking a foreign shop in Slovo section.
The looters fled empty-handed when police moved in.
