A video has been shared on social media showing a 'bush mechanic' leading an unwitting motorist right into the darkness of a metaphorical bush.
Ey mara bush mechanics really mislead us sometimes. In the video shared, the mechanic is seen making up names of car parts and pointing at the wrong components of the car while attempting to diagnose the vehicle's problem.
Twitter user AdvBarryRoux shared the hilarious video and it has since gone viral. Its unclear whether the video was real or made in jest but it had social media users chuckling. The mechanic can be seen pointing at the engine and calling it the 'brake pads'. He also points at other components near the engine and falsely identifies them as CV joints. The motorist seems to be unaware that the man is misleading him.

"Eish these mechanics will even tell you to change your number plates, l don't trust them."
"There is a mechanic and makhenekhe. That one is a makhenekhe.
"I know I don't know much about cars but this Modimo Waka...."
"Wait who's the mechanic la?"
"Was trying to be funny this guy."
