Imagine trying to make a living and then getting attacked by shameless thugs who think its okay to take things that don't belong to them by force - for some hawkers in Qwaqwa, this is a sad reality.
A truly heartbreaking clip shared online by a Twitter user with the handle, @alfred_cabonen shared a clip of a group of hawkers being robbed by thugs who make off with their goods in broad daylight but not before putting up a fight.
"Gangsters in Qwaqwa doing as they wish," the poster captioned the clip.
Locals meanwhile had this to say:
"Ke ditsotsinyana tsa Maqhekung. Hawkers must unite and form a formidable front to defend themselves against these devil angels. When I go home, I make sure that, my next of kin is ryt inma waist. Bcz ha theoha tekesing, ba batla ho o thusa ka nkane."
"Standing around and screaming whilst criminals are looting helps nobody! There are far more people in the crown why don't they storm these lazy scumbags and show them what is unacceptable?"
"Shocking. But this is what happens when the law has been derailed. Looting starts from the top dogs. Those thugs have learned from the best."
