At least 45 people have been killed and dozens more injured in riots in South Africa since the arrest of former President Jacob Zuma.

Violent riots have erupted across the country since the arrest of the former president, with protesters looting hundreds of shopping malls, banks and offices, and several people being arrested by police.

According to foreign media, the death toll has risen to 45 as a result of the violence so far.

South African President Ramaphosa says the country’s unrest is the worst since the 1990 riots.

The 79-year-old former South African president turned himself in to police last week.

Jacob Zuma has been charged with contempt of court for failing to appear in an investigation into alleged corruption during his presidency.

He was sentenced by a court to 15 months in prison on the charge, and the former president has denied any wrongdoing.
