Last Saturday, Maryna Jacobs shared a video on Facebook of an incident which took place outside the Mimosa Mall in Bloemfontein.

What could gather from the footage was the woman in the video parked outside the mall when she was confronted by a taxi driver who claimed the spot.

However, she maintained it was a public parking space and she had the right to park her car there. According to the video, the taxi driver then threatened to slash her tyres.

"Are you going to slash my tyres?" she was heard asking repeatedly.

The next moment the taxi driver allegedly hit her, presumably with his hat.

"Did you just hit me?" she yelled.

The taxi driver is then heard telling her to move her car because it is reserved for taxis only. A while later he even threatened to take her phone, to which the woman said she was going to call the cops.

Since it was uploaded, the video was viewed over 167k times and it left South Africans divided. Some said everyone in Bloemfontein knew it was the taxis' parking spot while other added the driver's behaviour towards the woman was unacceptable.

Take a look at the video below. Warning: the footage contains strong language.
