It showed a group of heavily armed suspects robbing a motorcyclist in broad daylight. They reportedly made off with the man's jewellery and cash.
The victim's identity remains unclear, but he appeared unharmed as the suspects drove away in a white hatchback.

Thabiso Sthabi suggested it was an inside job:
No ordinary thug would rob a motorcyclist... this is very unlikely. They knew exactly what he had in his possession and is worth. Inside job.
Tshepo Sato questioned why other motorists didn't stop to help:
I love how fellow motorists just go on about their business like nothing is happening. Ignore my plight today, I will ignore your plight tomorrow. I am a victim today, you will be a victim tomorrow.
Soria Grobbler shared a story of a similar incident:
Poor dude! The man that delivered our pizza the other night said he was robbed the previous week when he arrived at the “delivery address.” Took the bike and everything.
