President Cyril Ramaphosa will address the nation on Monday, following violent scenes in parts of the country.

Addressing the nation last night on South Africa's response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ramaphosa called for calm and warning those involved in criminal activities that they will face the full might of law "as lawlessness is brought to an end and economic activity is allowed to continue."

The address will follow the announcement by the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) that it has commenced with pre-deployment processes and procedures in line with a request for assistance received from the National Joint Operational and Intelligence Structure (NATJOINTS).

 The request entails SANDF support for police operations in parts of KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng.

The violent activities spread throughout the country, with malls in Cape Town closing for the day for fear of being targeted.

 "The majority of South Africans do not and should not tolerate violence, the destruction of property and the endangering of livelihoods. People are urged to report criminals by sharing videos of criminal activity with the police," the Presidency said in a statement.

 People are also asked to pay attention to what they post on social media and to be aware that the sharing of fake news or content that incites violence and looting is a crime.

"It is also a crime to possess, receive and use stolen goods, or to interfere with the police in their execution of their duties", the presidency added.


The exact time of the President’s address has not yet been announced.
