In a video that has gone viral, a white bakkie can be seen 'drifting' around a police van. The video was taken in Malamulele, Limpopo and uploaded to Twitter over the weekend. It has gained over 50 000 views and almost 2 000 retweets.
The video was uploaded by Twitter user @G33_Maltown and it was captioned:
"Meanwhile in Malamulele, so much disrespect."
Mzansi agreed with the statement as many tweeps found the video extremely disrespectful towards the country's law enforcement.
In the over 200 replies to the original tweet, some South Africans found the display to be funny whilst others found it highly disrespectful. Here's what some tweeps had to say:
"If the SA citizens disrespect the cops, what will foreigners do?"
"Tonight @MbalulaFikile will be tweeting about this and tomorrow @SAPoliceService will say they've caught the culprit and on Wednesday @RonaldLamola will say the culprit has been convicted for undermining police officers and endangering lives. #ItWillEndInTears"
"Why do we have adults who behave like this and see nothing wrong with it? Are these the same police that we will want to take us seriously when dealing with crime but we are showing them total disrespect? Yes, they are paid to do the job, but this is not it."
In other viral video news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on a man who hitched a ride on the back of a money truck. In Mzansi, we've seen people using trolleys and wheelchairs on high ways and now another man found a way to travel.
This man was filmed holding onto the back of a cash van. The video was shared on Facebook last week by social media user Boost Justice Mokoena.
The clip quickly gathered over 11 000 views and it left South Africans both stunned and amused.
