People usually run from the police, not the other way around, and this is exactly why this incident is gaining so much traction in Mzansi.
A video showing police fleeing from an angry mob is causing waves in South Africa, with over 140 000 views.
While the details behind this incident remain unknown, the clip, shared by South Africa Live, has citizens up in arms.
The mob can be seen throwing rocks at police vehicles with exceptional force, with one bakkie leaving the scene while the occupants of another vehicle flee on foot.
People were for the most part amazed that the officers didn't open fire on their assailants. Have a look at their comments below:
Brent Meyer - On behalf of SAPS, I would like to humbly apologize for this poor service delivery. We encourage our officers to serve and protect the public, but it's Monday... Who else doesn't have Monday blues. Tomorrow we will be back with full effect.
Blessing Masamvu - I bet, this can be the best local movie ever, so the driver of the Avanza managed to open the door and run but forgot to start the vehicle and flee. Blue monday kkkk they chose to run because the avanza is too slow for them.
Moeketsi Tsotetsi - We need to re-educate all SAPS officers on how to use service pistols to protect self and the public
Kurhula Tintwa Qhibi - Bheki Cele once said, "We give you guns to use them and not decorate". But I have a feeling these are those corrupt police officials who always collect bribe money and the people were tired.
