A video has been shared on social media showing a group of men robbing a pedestrian in broad daylight. According to the narration of the person recording the incident, the robbers took the man's phone and wallet. What raised alarms for many social media users was the fact that no one stepped in to help.
The footage was shared by Twitter user Phashake1 and has gone viral. His caption also pointed out that nobody assisted the victim of the robbery. Twitter user Moses_Maibelo said:
"That’s why I’d rather pay fortune to get out of JHB CBD using Uber or Gautrain. I can’t walk on the streets like the way I walk around PTA CBD. JHB CBD is scary as hell."
"We need to help each other as citizens and not allow such behaviour."
"JHB CBD don't ever try to be a hero. Lamajita walk together but you are not going to see them till you try to come closer"
"These hooligans knows that south Africans are not united hence they do as they please and not even running after performing their thuggish behaviour publicly. If @SAPoliceService is not helping us why don't we just fix the country ourselves?"
"The challenge when you try to help a stranger is he/she will not care what happens to you when he/she got a chance to escape. He/she run for her/his life and never looks back, trust me."
