Political analysts have described the protests in South Africa as a product of failure by people to deal with injustices.
The protests and looting that erupted last week after former president Jacob Zuma turned himself in to authorities to serve a 15-month jail term for contempt of court has left at least 72 people dead.
Soldiers and police are still struggling to restore order in most parts of the country.
Godber Tumushabe, the associate director at the Great Lakes Institute for Strategic Studies, says the violence being witnessed in South Africa is a build-up from the injustices people have suffered dating back to the apartheid era including the issue of landlessness.
Tumushabe further warns that a country that is faced with such injustices including Uganda cannot attain prosperity.
