- South Africans are still shocked after a video emerged of robbers holding up a jewellery store at Durban’s Pavillion Shopping Mall
- A video posted by @YusufAbramjee has left Mzansi social media divided on the safety of the workers and shoppers while security is available to patrol the malls
- Moreover, many believe that Mzansi is run by criminals and the government is failing to fight against the cruel robbers
Another robbery has hit a South African shopping and the latest video from a social media user is doing the rounds on social media.
@YusufAbramjee has posted a video clip of robbers hijacking a jewellery store in Durban at a mall known as Pavillion Shopping Mall.
The video was posted on Thursday morning but it remains unclear when did the thugs made their entry into the shop or at the mall. Abramjee posted on his Twitter timeline:
“Pavillion Shopping Mall, Durban: jewellery store robbed. #CrimeWatch.”
Briefly News now takes a look at the reactions as many ordinary South Africans continue to condemn such acts.
"The way we ran when we heard gunshots, people driving into oncoming traffic yeyi kuke kwashuba izolo ePavillion.”
“Well they (security) also running away or maybe they connected ibona abakhipha nombolo.”
“Surprisingly, the mall is open and everyone is going about their business, but I guess they are "used" to this now.”
“Criminals are running this country from the streets to our parliament while law-abiding citizens are social media commentators.”
“I got scared when they were like saw the camera lady/man and wanted to come back. What if you get killed because you want to take video.”
“Those jewellery stores have to move to more secure locations. Mall security is inadequate. Police can’t do much about the situation.”
“These people are even prepared to kill or die for jewellery..yoh!.”
Briefly News reported that sometimes the saying that crime doesn’t pay is usually taken for granted by those who are always looking to prey on unsuspecting people.
However, it became reality in a video clip that circulated on social media when a brave man managed to deal with the thugs accordingly.
A video posted by @RSA_Trucker on Twitter gave a free lesson on how to deal with robbers who always think they will get their way into someone’s belongings.
Although it was not clear where the video was shot, two criminals appear to be looking to prey on a man who just parked his car and they are seemingly demanding the keys or his valuables, but the man teaches one of the thugs a lesson.
