- A local man has shown Mzansi the lighter side of SA’s power crisis with a clip showing him calling up the government to request a power cut.
- The man’s reasoning was this: his wife wanted to cook the chicken in the oven, but he was keen for a braai
- Mzansi was left in stiches after watching the man’s earnest request, which included a description of what kind of braai cuisine he wanted for dinner
An Afrikaans man has set Mzansi on fire with his hilarious plea over the phone for the government to cut his power.
The video’s star was adamant over the phone about his reasons for needing the power to go off:
“We want to braai!”
Frustrations mounted on frustrations, as the man explained that his wife was cooking the chicken in the oven, which paled in comparison to his dream of a braaied fowl.
Briefly.co.za found that the video was made all the more hilarious by the fact that the man appeared to have been drinking.
Some social media users were suspicious of the man’s wife’s cooking – why else would he be so desperate to get that chicken out of the oven?
Others were hypnotised by the man’s accent and phrasing, especially when it came to his description of certain foods.
It seems that when it comes to Mzansi, you can take our electricity, but not our ‘gees’!
