The unrest that erupted in South Africa last week has triggered a fuel crisis in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) province, motorists have said.
They claim that it is becoming increasingly difficult for people in KZN to get fuel as protests over the arrest and incarceration of former President Jacob Zuma continue.

Local media reports suggest that winding queues are forming all over the province as motorists try to fill up.
Meanwhile, the Department of Energy has announced that the sale and dispensing of petrol and diesel into portable containers is prohibited.
It is believed the prohibition is a way to avoid the use of fuel in the ongoing protests that have left dozens of people dead.
Countless buildings have suffered extensive damage as a result of torching while some vehicles were burnt to ashes.
