It is no secret that crime in South Africa is high and everyday unsuspecting citizens fall victim to criminals. However, sometimes the thugs end up taking the most bizarre things.
We'd expect someone to steal a cellphone, TV or even a car. However, one woman woke up to find her gate is missing.
Yup, someone legit crept around at night and stole an entire gate. The tweep, who was only identified as @KamoMarven, detailed her shock on the social media platform after she found out the gate leading to her yard had been taken.
She captioned the post:
"Mara guys, we woke up today at home and the gate was gone. They stole our gate?? Bring back our gate."
Take a look at the post below:
The post gathered over 12 300 reactions and South Africans could not believe someone would steal a gate.
Twitter user, @african_idea, commented:
"Guys you must normalise waking up early in the morning to chase random people passing by your house ka sjambok. The community must know u are just mad,trust me u wont experience any crap like this."
Another tweep, @TdoTashS, said:
"So actually people steal something that is meant to be a security measure to keep away people who steal, not to steal what can be stolen? Yah noh ku rwef."
It is not the first time criminals stole something odd in South Africa. Briefly.co.za reported previously a man took to social media to reveal he had been robbed of an unusual item.
The man, who has been identified as Honourable Sibusiso Makamole, took to Facebook to share how someone stole his bathtub.
"So we got home last night and found that our bathtub had been stolen, a f@cking bathtub. If you see anyone selling a second hand bathtub please let me know," Makamole captioned the photo.
The photo was also shared on Twitter by parody account Man's Not Barry Roux and it sparked quite the reaction from tweeps.
