- A video circulating on social media shows a cop in uniform dancing in the middle of a party
- It is reported that the officer has been identified by police and internal investigations are underway
- Social media users had mixed reactions about the footage
A video of a police officer opening a circle at a party has gone viral on social media. In the footage, the cop is seen, dressed in full service uniform, dancing like his life depends on it. The clip has gotten mixed reactions from social media users; while some were amused, others were concerned that he was being unprofessional.
The video was shared on multiple social media platforms, including the South Africa Live page on Facebook. It has received thousands of views and over 350 comments.
According to the Daily Sun, the constable recently graduated from Pretoria West SAPS College. Police officials were not impressed by the 'majaivane's' new-found fame. Daily Sun shared that Gauteng police spokeswoman, Brigadier Mathapelo Peters, said that they have identified the cop and internal investigations are underway.
Facebook user Brian Gonda did not mind the dancing, but was concerned about whether the cop was drunk:
"Just be sober and don't throw your cap on the floor. Police are human too and are allowed to dance. We see it a lot in the UK during carnivals. So long as they are not drunk."
Gerald Govender said:
"Have all the fun you want but do it out of uniform, whilst you in uniform you represent law and order not fun and games."
Thabang Khosiqueen Joyces said:
"Reminds me of a movie **BABY POLICE**He i s just a puntsununu who only took police force as a source of income not to serve with pride and dignity..."
Candy Love Tinkies said:
"This one, you can see he's fresh from college and heading straight to disciplinary hearing."
John Salter said:
"I for one don't mind dancing wearing a uniform, but don't let the hat touch the ground unless it fell by mistake."
Mars La Rou said:
"Y'all so quick to judge. If he were drunk, there will be bad talking about misbehaviour while on duty. Now that he entertains the crowd, it's not taken into account? Good thing is, he has no firearm and he took no bribe to being there alone. You better stop looking things in a negative way, sometimes all the nation needs is humour."
