- A hilarious and questionable photo of a local man loading a traffic light on to a cart
- In the snap, it's unclear whether or not the man was permitted to take the traffic light but it was clear that taking it on a trolley was not permitted
- South Africans have shared various reactions to the photo that was shared on Twitter
Just when you think you've seen it all, you spot a man carrying away a broken traffic light in a trolley. This happened to one South African man who took it upon himself to share the bizarre snap of the robot snatching man with his Twitter followers.
In the photo that was uploaded by the man with the Twitter handle, @TherealMJNcube, an unknown man can be seen preparing to move a robot using a trolley to which he tied the traffic light with some rope.
"I just drove past a guy who just stole a traffic light. This is the new SA," he captioned the snap.
Locals had this to say about the snap:
"Doesn't look like he's stealing but taking something that's neglected to the scrap yard. Let's not criminalise people's harmless livelihoods from our 2 seconds view of their lives... Politicians steal billions every year, let's focus more on those criminals!"
"It is City property. Why can't you see that? If the City wants to straighten the pole, take it for scrap or melt it down - that decision is theirs."
"How do we know it wasn't given to him. That pole looks completely destroyed. Im wary of treating people like criminals like this, without knowing the full story."

On the morning of Tuesday, 20 October, while attending a court hearing at the Lusaka Magistrates' Court, Kambwili's wife Carol and daughter Chanda were arrested on allegations of misconduct.
As the public came to the vehicle and appeared to be against the heinous act, there was a young lady whose eyes were set on Chanda's expensive wig. From a video shared by Nkani on Facebook, one could see the young lady, with a mask on, stretching to steal Chanda's wig as others were busy trying to confront the police.
