    People stand in a queue outside Alex Mall in Alexandra, Johannesburg, on Thursday July 15, 2021. The queue starts off as one line and then it is split into men and women closer to the entrance, with women going in before the men.

    Although companies affected by the violence are working round the clock to get supplies to shops, South Africans are facing long hours in queues to get basic staples to their families.
    Days of violence and the looting and burning of trucks, retail outlets, malls and warehouses in KwaZulu-Natal and some parts of Gauteng have resulted in food and fuel shortages never seen in post-apartheid South Africa.
    These upheavals saw an appropriation of food and the closing of the N3 highway between the two provinces, which led to a dire shortage of basic supplies. Some customers had to start waiting in shop queues as early as 2am at the few businesses and retailers still operational.
    Even then, they could buy only using bank cards as businesses did not want to handle cash in such volatile situations. Rationing was imposed to prevent panic buying and shoppers were limited to buying 10 or 15 items each. The hours of service were also severely reduced, with shops closing at 2pm for safety reasons and to allow them to restock empty shelves.
