- A sneaky man utilised a tyre to disobey one of the lockdown restrictions
- Footage revealed how the man hides numerous bottles of alcohol in the tyre
- The video has gone viral and sparked a huge reaction from social media users
South Africans have been struggling to adjust their lives and habits to conform to the rules and regulations of the nationwide lockdown.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Police Minister Bheki Cele has some citizens up in arms after saying he would like the current lockdown to continue past the 21-day period.
Cele's main motivation is the fact that the crime rate has taken a dip ever since the sale of alcohol was banned.
South Africans are known for creativity and one man showcased his ingenuity in a controversial video.
The footage was shared by South Africa Live and included the caption:
"Bheki Cele won't see it coming, South Africans are something else."
The video reveals how the man hides numerous bottles of alcohol inside a spare tyre.
Briefly.co.za noted that the video has been viewed more than 100 000 times and attracted hundreds of negative comments.
Princess Makhosazana Morare shared a mouthful, but made some valid points:
"This is so embarrassing wow, the freedom that freedom fighters went to prison for? Imagine if people were this creative when it came to poverty and crime. Sad thing is people rather ask for food then go buy alcohol with the little they have, then we want to blame government for the state that they are in!
"VUKA M’TOMNYAMA. It’s only in black areas where you find shebeens in every street. These are the people who vote to make the countries most important decisions I so wish alcohol can be banned for good, maybe people will re-prioritise their lives. And yes I do drink but I’m not so desperate to have a drink."
Francois Theron added,
"SA innovation, of the wrong kind!"
Mpho Nyalungu joined the anti-alcohol cause:
"I support the notion that alcohol should not be sold even after lockdown, we would find other productive ways to utilize our creativity then b run around with alcohol."
