- @Abramjee has shared a video clip of a truck that lost its load as passers-by helped them themselves to the creamer products
- While social media users are divided on whether looting is right or wrong, many believe the truckers sometimes lose the cargo intentionally
South Africans are reacting to a video of a truck being looted near Tshwane, Centurion where looters are seen helping themselves. It remains unclear as to which company owns the truck but it seems it has lost its load of coffee creamers after it was spotted on an R55 busy road in Gauteng.
Posted by @Abramjee on Twitter, the clip shows how drivers and a truck just drop members of the community to collect their boxes.
“What was the load? Because seems like people are helping themselves.”
“This is embarrassing. Yet again it is a sign of the times. People are struggling.”
“Of course. I couldn't help to notice the poor folk in the black Nissan SUV struggling with the loot. Tough times.”
“The Jetta at the end didn’t play games. Loaded boxes in the boot.”
“I’m starting to think trucks in SA lose their load on purpose. These guys are the real Robin Hoods.”
“The guy who shot the vid played the guys dirty lol, he is zooming the plates.”
“If someone were to steal one box from the Jetta would the Jetta guy have the right to fight the thief for stealing his goods?”
This website, Briefly News reported that a truck got stranded and unable to move, which prompting local residents to rush in and loot the goods.
However, a recent Facebook post pointed to a unique twist. Lebo Khumalo Legodi shared an image and caption in the #ImStaying Facebook group, which showed the contents of a beer truck that was thrown from the vehicle.
The caption indicated that the locals refused to loot and chose to help the driver re-pack the drinks instead. Briefly News surveyed the responses and South Africans found the news hard to believe. However, some took the story at face value and praised the kind residents.
