From a man holding a meeting with his livestock to Cristiano Ronaldo grooving to Jerusalema, things have been weirdly wonderful in Mzansi. Briefly.co.za explores the hottest South African stories from the past week.
Imagine hosting a meeting with your livestock over maize or an international sporting legend grooving to a homebrewed sensation.
This week has been an upbeat, but strange, one for South Africans but we are living for the moment.
Briefly.co.za explores the hottest stories out of Mzansi from the past week:
A South African man has left the country in stitches after a video of him having a meeting with his livestock went viral.
The video was uploaded to Twitter by @CherrolNgobese earlier today. The video has gained over 1 000 views.
The animals are gathered in front of the man and what makes it truly funny is the seriousness in his voice whilst addressing them.
The animals stand still as though they are listening intently. Briefly.co.za translated the hilarious video:
"We are in a meeting now. I called this meeting to let you guys know I don't have your maize yet. I came home late yesterday and I couldn't buy it. I'm going to head to Stanger (north of Durban) now to buy some for you guys. I hope you understand."
Master KG’s Jerusalema just does not stop giving! World-famous soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo got involved with the global dance revolution and Master KG was blown away.
Seeing the unity Jerusalema has created all over the globe is truly heartwarming. Watching all the clips have struck many smiles, tears and instilled a lot of hope during a time where it is needed most.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Master KG had wished Ronaldo would partake in the Jerusalema dance challenge and he did.
Seeing the endless support has left Master KG with a heart bursting with gratitude. Jerusalema has literally had people from all corners of the earth grooving. While they might not understand the words, they feel the beat and that is really all that they need.
Taking to social media, Master KG expressed his endless thanks to Ronaldo for hearing his wishes and being such a team player. Having an international football legend do his dance challenge is something Master KG will never forget.
“I remember telling my friends weeks ago that my wish is to see @Cristiano playing Jerusalema. And today he posted it. Thank you #Jerusalema."
Former Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa’s family is taking the reported confession by a hitman who allegedly took part in his murder with a pinch of salt.
According to a report by City Press newspaper on Sunday, the hitman, who was not named, implicated Meyiwa’s lover and songstress Kelly Khumalo.
However, in an interview with Briefly.co.za by freelancer Wiseman Manzini, Meyiwa’s brother, Siya, described the latest development as another ‘diversion’ in Meyiwa’s case.
He said this was another clear indication to them as the family that the end was not in sight in his brother’s murder case.
“I can tell you now that this is another diversion from the real killers of my brother. And as the family, no one has come to us with these revelations and these people called hitmen are faceless,” said an enraged Miya.
It’s been six years since the footballer was gunned down at the Khumalo’s household in Vosloorus, but the police were yet to nab his killers.
Infuriated, Siya unleashed a scathing attack on the country’s law enforcement authorities, saying they have failed not only the family, but the whole country.
“Senzo belonged to the nation. We only produced him and handed over to the nation. So, I’m pretty sure we are not the only ones who are feeling the pain of not seeing justice being served,” said Siya.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported that 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.
