South Africa President Cyril Ramaphosa has said the violence that has rocked the country was pre-planned, describing it as an assault on democracy.
Riots were sparked by the jailing of former President Jacob Zuma.
The death toll has risen to 212, up by almost 100 since Thursday, the government said.
Police officers have been protecting deliveries of food to supermarkets after days of widespread looting led to shortages.
