Local fintech firm CompariSure has conducted an online survey across the country on the recent unrest.
Using its conversational artificial technology (AI) technology, CompariSure’s research involved “chatting” to over 1 600 respondents in order to gather opinions and results, all within a period of 48-hours.
The survey revealed that a mere 7% of the respondents supported the recent looting and violence that broke out in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng.
Last week, SA was thrown into turmoil after what started as protests against the imprisonment of former president Jacob Zuma turned violent, with businesses being looted or set on fire.
The pro-Zuma protests that started in KwaZulu-Natal after Zuma handed himself in to authorities spread to Gauteng a few days later at an unprecedented speed, and before most could process what was going on, violent scenes of looting were being enacted in some shopping malls.
