Police say they are monitoring the Lenasia CBD after reports of looting on Nirvana Drive opposite the train station. 

A WhatsApp being circulated on Tuesday warned business owners that the sporadic looting and violence in the Johannesburg CBD, Jeppestown, Mayfair and other areas would spread to the suburb. 

The polices Hector Netshivodza told Radio Islam that they received a message warning of possible violence and looting. 

“The message is correct, we had the information that there will be looting. People have started looting at CBD taxi rank, but they are not at the Signet Terrace. The police are there monitoring the situation. Right now the situation is under control.” 

Netshvidoza says police would remain in the area until the situation is calm.
