Woman's car burnt, video shows her crying
In more news about damage to vehicles, Briefly News reported that a video was making the rounds on social media of a woman crying after her car was set alight, and had definitely got Mzansi triggered.
The poor young lady in the clip shared by Twitter user @SabeloAzande has not yet been identified but it's clear the entire ordeal was certainly too much to bear. In the short clip, a woman can be heard crying hysterically as images of her charred vehicle come up on the screen.
"These dogs are burning my car. They put grass underneath. These dogs," she repeatedly yells as all those around the vehicle try and make sense of the situation."
The clip has raised many eyebrows with some questioning the blind jealousy it must have taken to destroy this hard-working woman's vehicle so senselessly.
