One thing you never expect to see is police officers getting robbed by brazen criminals in broad daylight while surrounded by a number of witnesses. Well, exactly this happened right here in South Africa.
In a clip shared on Twitter by @ndi_shony, police officers can be seen getting approached by armed men who then proceed to demand that the cops hand over their firearms, which they end up doing.
"This country is a movie #DiepCityMzansi," Shonny captioned the clip while other locals had this to say:
"Why Mageza wa Avanza Asathula mesono e?"
"At least they were not killed"
"This is a bloody joke"

Briefly News also reported that South Africans have been left wallowing in disappointment after a clip was shared of a man desperately appealing to some Roodepoort police offers to get up from behind the comfort of a heater in the police station and help a woman that was being attacked by four rapists.
In the clip that was shared by Farah C Fortune on Twitter, the man records himself walking into the station where cops are basically asleep behind a heater. The man then asks the cops why they were not answering his calls to notify them that a woman was being raped by four men on a nearby corner.
"I've asked for your help, and you couldn't help me, I got into my car and drove here to tell you that they are raping a lady here on the corner of 7th Avenue and 7th Street and you refuse to speak to me," the concerned resident said.
