As the City of Cape Town and the University of Cape Town are still in shock after ravaging fires that engulfed the city, a man has posted a picture on social media where he compares life before and after the fire.
Going by the name of @Ori_Debig_Beats on Twitter, he has shocked the country with his latest images. He posted the burnt-down University of Cape Town building as well as a snap of a comfortable bed in what looks like a hotel.
Many Mzansi social media users have acted swiftly to react to the two images and some are saying it’s too soon to have such an unbelievable change in fortunes.
