Last month, Briefly.co.za reported on a video that showed a group of people fighting in front of a house.

The footage went viral and "Hugo bel die polisie" instantly became a popular meme on the South Africans social media streets.

However, no one really knew what happened in the video - until now. Rian van Heerden of Scenic Drive spoke to Wynand Janssens - the man with the amputated leg.

Janssens, who lost his leg in a freak accident at work over 25 years ago, explained the fight started over his son's relationship with the blonde woman in the video.

According to Janssens, the woman and his son were just friends, but her boyfriend believed that they were having an affair.

The jealous boyfriend called on his friends to help beat Janssens' son up and that is how the fight - which was filmed over a year ago - started.

The dad explained that they can now laugh about the incident, but it was "unfortunate" that their 'dirty laundry' was aired on social media.

As for the neighbour who filmed the video and kept shouting for Hugo to call the police, Janssens revealed she allegedly had a tendency to stick her nose into other people's business.

The man revealed they didn't know her but she had a reputation for peering out her windows to keep an eye on everyone who lived nearby.

He told the Scenic Drive crew that she supposedly knew everything about everyone.

The family has also not spoken to the nosy neighbour, with Janssens adding that he believed she was "too scared" to talk to him after the video surfaced online.
