In a videos circulating on social media, the residents including the elderly, could be heard shouting that people should “come out for free shopping” as they carted away food items from the warehouse.

Security personnel, who arrived at the scene, could not stop the breach of the warehouse because of the overwhelming number of people.

“We heard that hundreds of people have gathered and are looting foodstuff at a storage facility in Kwana-waya.

“We have mobilised policemen and (they) are on our way to the scene in order to restore peace and order in the area,’ he said.
