Eastern Cape towns on the borders of KwaZulu-Natal have run out of food and petrol due to the unrest in the neighbouring province.

That is according to the Border-Kei Chamber of Business in the Eastern Cape, which has described the unrest as well-organised terrorism.

The BKCB has 800 member businesses, including Mercedez-Benz SA, Nestle and Johnson & Johnson.
