- A man was braaing in his backyard when he spotted a citizen violating the lockdown
- So, he took a megaphone out and told the man to go home because "Oom Cyril" asked nicely
- A video clip of the incident was shared online and it gathered over 92 600 views
On Wednesday, a man, Ben Myres, posted a hilarious video on Twitter. The footage shows another man using a megaphone to reprimand a South African breaking the lockdown rules.
The man in the video is heard saying in Afrikaans:
"Kan die oom met die groen K-Way baadjie asseblief terug keer na sy plek van woning. Oom Cyril het mooi gevra dat ons by the huis bly."
In English, he was translated saying:
"Can the uncle with the green K-Way jacket please go back to his house. Uncle Cyril asked nicely that we stay at home."
Myres captioned the clip:
"Glad South Africans are doing their part to enforce the lockdown."
Take a look at the video below:
The video gathered over 92 600 views in just a day and it had social media users laughing out loud.
"Oom Cyril" even started trending on Twitter shortly after the video was posted:
Social media users gave their two cents' worth on the video in the comment section.
Social media user, @OrangesSalt, commented:
"The president should change his handle to Oom Cyril."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported earlier that a stunning student, Sonke Nkwane, was set to graduate with a BCom degree in Industrial Psychology when universities cancelled graduation ceremonies as a result of the coronavirus.
However, Nkwane did not let Covid-19 rob her of the special day and she hosted a graduation ceremony at her house.
"I told myself no corona formed against me shall prosper," she wrote online.
