- An ANC member was caught on video being arrested for breaking lockdown regulations
- It is alleged that the man misused food parcels and got intoxicated on alcohol
- Social media users had strong words for the ruling party, feeling this member's behaviour was disgraceful amid harsh conditions country-wide
An ANC member has been arrested for allegedly stealing food parcels and drinking expensive alcohol. A video of the yet-to-be-identified man screaming and protesting his arrest has since been shared on social media.
Former Johannesburg mayor, Herman Mashaba, shared the video and weighed in on the situation, saying:
"Well done to this JMPD officer. I hope this ANC cadre rots in jail! We are not respected, fellow South Africans. While we adhere to regulations, with families starving and businesses suffering, they are chowing food parcels, sipping 18-year Glenfiddich."
The video went viral on social media and South Africans shared their thoughts in the comment section of the post. Suffice it to say, many were not impressed.
Twitter user mogakane_tsholo said:
"The reality of South Africans in rural areas and townships. These comrades don't give a damn about the people, they give a damn about looting."
"Akere that is why they are denying us certain things because they are sorted. *sigh*"
"What is really baffling is who in their right mind keeps on voting for these people?"
"Same people whose livelihoods and sustenance is being stolen by the ANC will vote them back into power come next election. They are not victims. They’re accomplices."
"This is so embarrassing, our leaders."
