"Today myself and my staff were held up at gun point on my property. Thankfully all alive to tell the tale. The photos below are of a warrant officer who slept for 2 hours in my house while a constable took our statements," wrote Barbara.

Many South Africans were left feeling very deflated after seeing the post and shared their disappointment in the comment section. Read a few of their comments below:

@maletshela1 said:

"People justifying someone sleeping on duty. No wonder there’s so much incompetency. Just think that this could be the reason why most of the time they don’t even respond because they are having a nap. Hai suka man!"

@Bernecia said:

"I'm going through the responses and I'm shocked at how many people are actually defending this yet we come here every day and complain about the incompetence of the government but we defend this nonsense. The bar is low in this country"
