It's no secret that most SA roads are in a horrible condition and many citizens have taken it upon themselves to fill up potholes.

However, one man managed to make the country laugh while doing so. The 'mhlungu' - as some tweeps dubbed him - joked that he got a R1.3 million tender to fix the road so he decided to fill it up with sand.

The funny clip was posted on Twitter on Tuesday by social media user @SabzaT03, who captioned it:

"Haibo, what's going on."
