- A fight at a local Soshanguve tavern was caught on camera and since gone viral on social media

- Mzansi shared their reactions to the shocking clip in the comments section
A short clip has been making the rounds on social media which appears to have captured a fight breaking out at a busy tavern in Soshanguve, Tshwane. The video was shared by Twitter user @kulanicool, who captioned the post:
"He baan Soshanguve?"
If it weren't for the frantic vernac being spoken in the background of this viral video, you'd definitely think it was filmed on the set of an action movie.
Judging from the clip, it seems to be a very lit night in Mzansi as bottles can be heard clinking against one another. Before there's time to make sense of what's happening, a large crowd rushes to a corner, evidently singling out a victim to beat up.
Social media users were definitely shocked by the clip, which has since been viewed more than 16k times. Here's what they had to say in the comments section:
"What's happening before I watch? I don't wanna see blood."
"Which unit/extension is this? I have always found Sosha to be very fun. I usually would hang ko Vicks and some place called Liquid Zone or something. And it was always decent."
"Idk why they always do this, whenever we groove our grooves end with violence, Mamelodi grooves better than us tbh."
"I need a new location... now it will sound like everyone in Sosha is violent."
"I can’t even tell who’s winning."
"Yerrrrrr this is why I prefer being bored at home, grooves are never safe."
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported for many South Africans, the threat of real-life violence is an everyday reality. When these crimes are caught on camera, it really helps to raise awareness about being more vigilant in our beloved country.
A local man was caught completely off-guard this week when he witnessed what appeared to be a kidnapping in progress. He captured parts of the terrifying scene on a video which has since gone viral on social media.
In the short clip, a driver can be seen holding his camera phone in the direction of passing traffic. He appears to be following a speeding taxi down a quiet Pretoria freeway. It's difficult to see the woman poking her head out of the taxi window but her chilling screams are definitely audible.
Twitter user @teezza posted the shocking video. She writes:
"A girl just got kidnapped in front of my brother, he tried to chase them down but at some point they stopped and drew guns. I don’t know what to do with this information... please help, this just happened 10 mins ago."
Her desperate plea definitely got Mzansi's attention. Read some of their comments below:
"Guys get the Namola app. I witnessed a similar thing last year in Kempton Park. I chased the car from the Benoni exit until Irene while on hold on the 10111 number. Namola responds instantly and assists."
"Please can I have the contact number of your brother? Got members trying to help."
"This country is not safe for any law-abiding citizen."
"My heart skipped a beat coz it can happen to anyone, our only crime is being female. I pray nothing happens to her and she is reunited with her family. Yoh my heart."
"Bheki Cele and his crew are useless on this serious crime. SA is gone."
"Next time when you see people doing that, please make sure you follow them slowly, not like that you are not a police, those bastards they’ll kill you."
