A businessman has been kidnapped in Fordsburg, Johannesburg. Twitter user @Abramjee posted CCTV footage of the incident to his profile this morning. The 36-second clip has quickly gone viral.
In the top corner of the video, a man wearing a dark jacket can be seen being taken out his vehicle by two assailants clad in white. They move him towards another vehicle and make sure they all get in.
The video was uploaded this morning and has already been viewed over 10 000 times on the social networking site. South African tweeps took to the replies section to share how they felt about this unfortunate incident.
Here's what some Saffa tweeps had to say:
"If this was happening in Cape Town the police minister would have done a walkabout in the area and set up a task team. The MMC of safety and security of the city of JHB must put pressure on the minister to do something."
"So is that much soft to be kidnapped. Something fishy here, noways."
In similar news, Briefly.co.za reported on Dishal Sooku, the heroic businessman who stopped a kidnapper. While some people turn a blind eye when it comes to crime, others don't hesitate to risk their own lives to save someone else. Last week, a video went viral showing a man attempting to steal a child at Bella Napoli, Goldman Crossing, Florida, West Rand.
However, the kidnapper's attempt was foiled by a heroic man who tackled him to the ground and immobilised him long enough to be arrested. South Africans applauded the good Samaritan for stopping the thug and many tried to track the hero down.
Dishal Sooku has been identified as the man who stopped the heinous crime. The 38-year-old Roodepoort restaurant owner said his father noticed the "suspicious-looking man" and told Sooku to keep an eye on him.
