Since it was uploaded the video has gained almost 4 000 views. The video is 30 seconds long and a man can be heard yelling at the officer before pulling the officer's firearm off his person and placing it on the officer's back.

In other news making headlines, Briefly.co.za recently reported on South African police officers being chased away by partiers refusing to stop grooving after 10pm. Just recently, South Africa's president, Cyril Ramaphosa, announced that the alcohol ban, along with the cigarette ban, will be lifted - this as the country slipped into Level 2 of the lockdown. The decision was met with mixed reactions from South Africans.

This video of party-goers blatantly refusing to shut down their groove must be why many concerned locals called for the alcohol ban to be reinstated. In the video, a local police officer can be seen leaving the party while the drunk partiers continue to chant and dance.

The video, which was uploaded by Twitter user @Chris_Plaatjie, received thousands of reactions from tweeps who expressed their feeling towards the distasteful actions of the drunken partiers.
