A recent short video clip confirmed that when an African mother wants to discipline her child, nothing can stop her – not even the laws of physics.
There’s a common belief that African mothers are masters of discipline.
One hilarious short video epitomises this as it shows a determined mother punishing her child through the use of her slipper.
While this form of punishment may not be new to many South Africans, the extent of the mother’s accuracy is something to behold.
The video was shared by Twitter user, Zero Chills (@nyaikae), on Wednesday and has already been viewed 22 000 times.
It shows the mother walking in the direction of her daughter.
However, the distance between them is quite far as the daughter speeds away.
The mother seemingly refuses to allow her child to escape punishment and launches her slipper into the air.
With the accuracy of a NFL football quarter-back, the slipper hits the daughter a few hundred metres away.
Tweeps found the footage hilarious as well as the caption: “You can tell an African mom from how she throws a slipper.”
Some of the reactions were on par with the comical video.
