- A video has emerged showing a prisoner receiving luxury shoes in jail
- He showed off the luxury brand package
- Mzansi social media users had mixed reactions about this
A video has been shared on social media showing a prisoner receiving an expensive pair of Louis Vuitton shoes. According to the prisoner, the shoes are worth R30 000.
He shows off the receipt along with the certificate of authenticity. Many Mzansi social media users were not only concerned about the price of the shoes but also about why a prisoner had access to a phone in jail.
Facebook user Cherné Roux said:
"The problem there is not the shoes. Its the fact that there is access to cellphones inside the facility."
To which social media user Slotha Abia Smoke responded:
"Officer is taking video and prisoner is explaining to him, end of story. Or don't know teachers do carry their phone in class but learners aren't allowed?"
Facebook user Thabo Monegi was more sympathetic:
"What do you people think prison is really? Life in there is a completely different existence altogether. You would be shocked at the amount of difference some this inmates make on the outside, I know of some unemployed and impoverished families who regularly visit their family members, breadwinners, fathers, boyfriend, brothers and babydaddies who are incarcerated every month to go fetch money for groceries."
Meanwhile Briefly.co.za previously reported that the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) took to social media to share the proud moment Kenny Motsamai was sworn in as a Member of Parliament. Motsamai spent nearly three decades in prison after he was found guilty of murdering a white traffic officer in 1989. According to TimesLIVE, Motsamai was involved in a robbery in Boksburg which led to the death of the officer. The former military commander of the Azanian People’s Liberation Army (Apla) received two life sentences behind bars, however, he was released on parole in June last year.
