THE looting of foreign owned businesses has spread to some parts of Mpumalanga.

Foreign owned shops were looted and destroyed on Wednesday, Emalahleni Mpumalanga.

It appears the foreign shop owners are done with just sitting and watching the life investments go to waste.

In a video shared by South African anti-crime activist Yusuf Abramjee shop owners can be seen grabbing one of the looters and attacking him.

The looters can be seen making off with various items, including speakers, suitcases and bicycles.

As the alleged shop owners were busy beating up the looter, a police officer had to intervene and break up the fight.

Mpumalanga cops say over three people were arrested for looting.
