South Africans react to the Moti brothers prediction
Many Twitter users were shocked by the accuracy of the prediction and questioned where @vico_dbn got his 'information'.
Many others started to question whether or not the brothers were really kidnapped and other tweeps were simply puzzled by how the connection between the drugs and the Moti brothers was made.
Here are some of their reactions:
"This country is just a movie bra, like seriously... Plus we don't have intelligence at all, none whatsoever."
"The Moti family will now move to Steyn City where there is 24-hour security, schools, shops, offices inside the complex. All millionaires will now move to gated communities. Then kidnappings will start affecting the middle class."
"OK... my question is where ever they were lost? Were they served Halaal food?? Abducting someone with dietary needs must be a mission."
"Exactly, could it be coincidence? The drugs be stolen like that? And press run with it and know accountability on whatsoever?"
