- A security guard died in unrest in Johannesburg.
- It is suspected that Sphela Ndawonde was killed in the middle of a skirmish between looters and police, but the details of the manner in which he died are unclear.
- Police have been locked in running battles since the early hours of the morning.
A security guard was killed during riots that broke out in the Johannesburg CBD early on Sunday morning.
The chaos followed unrest in KwaZulu-Natal , which was sparked by the imprisonment of former president Jacob Zuma.
The security guard, Sphela Ndawonde, 24, was in Hanau Street in Jeppestown, on his home after a night shift at work.
Although the manner in which he died is unclear, his brother, Mhlonipheni Ndawonde, told News24 that he was informed that Sphela had been killed in the middle of a skirmish between looters and police.
It is believed that a mob of people forced their way into a liquor store and that Public Order Police officers were called to disperse them.
There was a strong police presence there to protect the scene, and some officer sporadically used rubber bullets to disperse people.
Roads surrounding it had been blocked by burning barricades and debris.
Police could not immediately confirm the fatality or details of the incident.
At least 62 people have been arrested in the riots in Johannesburg and KwaZulu-Natal. Shops were looted, roads blocked and property destroyed.
Police have been locked in running battles since the early hours of the morning.
Zuma was jailed after the Constitutional Court sentenced him to 15 months in prison for disregarding an order to testify before the Zondo Commission into state capture.
