The general sentiment is that crime decreased during the nationwide lockdown that was imposed a few months ago.
However, since the relaxation of the lockdown regulations, it seems the criminals have come out at night yet again.
South Africans were livid when they saw footage of yet another hijacking. This incident took place at a Sasol petrol sation in Ruimsig.
Surveillance footage revealed how occupants of a luxury Mercedes-Benz caught the driver of an Audi off-guard at the petrol station.
While filling up, the thugs quickly overpowered him and he was forced to flee, while the criminals made away with both vehicles.
The video was shared by the Intelligence Bureau SA group via Facebook and can be viewed below.
More than 1 000 comments were shared in response and Briefly.co.za shared some of the most eye-catching ones.
Sammy Kyalo said,
"The problem is not citizens , it's not even policing , our problem is weak laws against violent criminals."
Mafikizolo Ndlovu added,
"When are we (law abiding citizens) pushing back? These guys are in heaven. They are in cruise control. They are having it easy; that is why it doesn't end."
Patrick Mpho Khumalo said,
"The reason why all this is happening it’s because the Minister of police and his people are focusing on the suspension of alcohol than dealing with the crime in SA."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that an armed robbery and hijacking caused a stir via social media.
The footage revealed a group of men pouncing on a motorist at a petrol station.
