There's never a dull moment on Mzansi's streets. Recently, a motorist filmed an unbelievable event when scores of poeple looted a booze truck that broke down.
You would be forgiven for thinking it's a riot or a Black Friday sale, but what is actually seen on the video is hundreds of people flocking to a broken down truck carrying alcohol.
South Africa Live posted the video on Facebook with the caption:
"Booze truck breaks down in Africa? Traffic comes to a standstill."
While it's unclear where in Africa this happened, some people commented it happened in Botswana. Nevertheless, people were still awed by what transpired.
The person filming can be heard saying: "This is stealing. You are stealing," while a man walks past with a 6-pack of booze with a smile from ear to ear.
Shirley A Bailey commented: "
Irrespective of where this is, this is not good. Imagine the driver's panic knowing that their vehicle has broken down, they are responsible for their cargo and can do absolutely nothing about it... come on... people have to be better than this..."
Elvis MT saw the humour in it: "Hey wena..its called borrowing in Africa not stealing."
Patricia Mokoka pointed out it was in Botswana: "This is Bots. Alcohol is very expensive."
Over the years, Briefly.co.za has reported on many incidents of people looting trucks.
In the most recent, a viral video captured the moment a community in Langa, Cape Town, looted a truck in broad daylight last week.
South Africa Live shared the video on its Facebook page, Briefly.co.za gathered. It's unclear exactly when the incident occurred. Hijackers had apparently abandoned the truck in the area, leaving the community to help itself on the goods it carried.
