A recent video rubbed South Africans up the wrong way as it showed a protest in Hillbrow, Johannesburg.
Protesters can be seen removing bricks and rocks from a pavement and tossing them into the road to obstruct motorists.
Within no time, the road is littered with rocks and one motorist is forced to swerve out of the way.
The footage infuriated many a South African and the finger was pointed in all directions.
Hillbrow is renowned for a high number of foreign nationals residing in the area and some assumed that the protestors weren’t South African citizens.
Some called for arrests, but others preferred a harsher form of punishment.
Numerous tweeps were critical of the South African Police Service (SAPS) as they felt the situation should have been diffused long ago.
Briefly.co.za noted that many held the ANC accountable for the lack of law enforcement and service delivery.
