- An image of a sightseeing bus operating in Cape Town has many South Africans upset
- The bus seems to be packed to capacity at its top level with passengers about to board the lower level
- South Africans have expressed anger and frustration about the bus operating during the second wave in Mzansi
A picture of an overloaded sightseeing bus in Cape Town is making its rounds on social media. The double-decker bus seems to be packed at the top level while the bottom level has passengers lined up to get inside.
@areyouokayanny shared the image on Twitter making references to people constantly speaking about minibus taxis being overloaded. South African tweeps are shocked that a sightseeing bus is allowed to operate under Level 3 Lockdown.
Many SAns have shared the image and responded with distaste at the fact that the bus is allowed to operate. It is currently unclear if this picture was taken recently.
Take a look at the original post below:
Below are just a few of the responses from upset tweeps:
"People are so careless and irresponsible!"
"The hypocrisy! And taxis fill up to go to work etc. Not for fun."
"People in Cape Town are not scared of this virus hey?"
@zeebee__xo quote tweeted with:
"That shit made my blood boil. As if people are getting into taxis for fun."
@TheChadAnthony1 also wrote:
"But the taxi's in Steenberg get pulled over. Explain @CapeTownRedBus."
In other trending news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on Mzansi's frustration at Bheki Cele's bedtime for the nation. Cele said he wants all South Africans to be in bed by 9pm on New Year's Eve.
Cele created a buzz with this unusual statement and started trending online shortly after the video of him saying the above was posted. South Africans are saying that the minister had seemingly disappeared until alcohol sales were prohibited again.
Others are saying that Cele is worrying about the wrong things and that he should not be telling SAns when they can and can't go to bed. Below are some of the tweets involving Cele after the above went viral:
"They literally unbanned alcohol and Bheki Cele disappeared into thin air. Alcohol banned again and he’s suddenly the most visible minister on earth."
"We understand the curfew, but ordering us to sleep at 21h00 is disrespectful. We are not Bheki Cele's children. Voetsek. Abuse of power. #southafricancoronavirus."
