A hair-raising clip of a man getting badly assaulted on a busy Cape Town road on Thursday morning this week was shared online. In the short clip that was shared on Twitter by Twitter page, @1SecondLater, the taxi drivers and the motorist can be seen engaging in an argument.
Soon three taxi drivers gang up on the man, kicking him to the floor and proceeding to kick and hit him, tearing his T-shirt in the process. One can also see the motorist's mother trying to intervene and getting pushed around by those involved in the altercation.
While it is not clear what started the harrowing altercations, one social media user, @iamalkatraz, said that the motorist being assaulted in the clip had insulted the taxi drivers and used racial slurs to address them, resulting in the attack.
Meanwhile, social media users have shared their thoughts on the clip. A few of which you can read below.

"Disgusting lot! SA has become a battleground! So sad!"
In other Briefly.co.za reports, after a video surfaced of a woman being beaten up by her partner, South Africans have been trying to get justice. The man has been identified only as "Themba" as she called his name in the video.
The video of the abuse starts with the lady asking someone to stop sending her messages on her personal WhatsApp number and to rather use the group chat. Before she could complete her sentence, a man off camera begins to beat her.
Now, the same lady has been recorded once more. This time she is laying a charge against the person who posted the video of her being abused. The woman says she is fine and well and is opening a case of defamation of character against the person who uploaded the video.
