Mzansi social media users have reacted to the ten men who were arrested after they were caught stealing fuel directly from a Joburg metro bus. They were found with 25-litre containers filled with diesel. Many commended the mayor for a job well done while expressing concern about the crime in the country.
Twitter user Mzwezwe8 said:
"Herman Mashaba is serious on fighting crime more than the president of South Africa."
While CornuPerold said:
"How is it possible to steal diesel from a metro bus? Surely these vehicles are equipped with tracking systems and fuel consumption monitored?"
"Those security guards have just been insourced, now they allow this to take place on their watch, they should go too."
"Guys what's happening in this country?"
"This is a small breakthrough, go and put cameras in all your depots, you'll see thousands of litres going through same mode operandi."
Malaba99 simply said:
"I give up."
