- However, Nando's tagged Bheki Cele in a comment and said the man was using them as a cover to get to Tops bottle store
- A parody account for the police minister hilariously reacted to the post and in left South Africans laughing out loud
The closure of fast-food restaurants during the lockdown has been getting to South Africans and many have been left with cravings.
A man, Themba Mbuzi, took to Twitter to share a photo of a guy crawling through a tunnel and he captioned it:
"#Day19ofLockdown If my calculations are correct, Nando's should be right above me."
However, Nando's is known for more than just their fiery chicken as the fast-food outlet is also known for hilarious posts.
Responding to Mbuzi's post, Nando's tagged Minister of Police, Bheki Cele, and said the man was using them as an excuse to break into Tops.
"Hello @GenBheki_Cele... This man is using us as a front to break into the Tops next door."
Take a look at the post below:
The Twitter user, @GenBheki_Cele, did not disappoint and his reply had South Africans laughing out loud. The parody minister of police said that he would send officers to the scene if Nando's gave him their recipe.
Take a look at his reaction below:
South Africans found the exchange between 'Cele' and Nando's hilarious and they gave their two cents' worth in the comment section.
However, it appears the Twitter account Nando's tagged is a Bheki Cele parody account. The page is not verified and although tweeps found it funny, they said it was not the minister of police who responded.
It's not the first time Nando's had Mzansi in stitches. Briefly.co.za previously reported Nando's shaded its competitors selling chicken nuggets.
Nando's shared a clip which appears to be a conversation between a rival fast-food chicken outlet and a customer.
The customer is heard asking if he can place an order but he wanted to ask a question first. He asks the lady what part of the chicken a nugget comes from.
The rival fast-food outlet's employee tries to explain that she can't answer that and the customer asks if it comes from the "bum" part of the chicken.
