The post reads:
“Eishhhh I missed out naaa, going broke again oo.”
“Huh the DA is looting nayo. Zyakhala ngempela.”
“This is why crime won't end in SA. Evidence gone now, even if they find fingerprints, the criminals will say they were in the crowd who were picking up money after the heist.”
“It's a war zone. If not worse, it gets worse every day. It's like a tap has been opened...”
“They take them out of the van or voluntarily they go out. Obviously, when cornered like that, you give them what they want and choose life.”
“So sad to see what's happening in our country, in addition to this another police station also held up and officers locked up in a vehicle with all their weapons stolen.”
“Posting those kinds of videos is like promoting the crime. No arrest has been made.”
“So these bombs don't ruin the money or cut it into pieces...?”
