Members of the South African Police Service are working around the clock to solve a case of a robbery that took place in Soweto. Social media reports indicate that a gang of 15 men bombed a money safe at a petrol service station in Meadowlands, Soweto.
Looking at a number of pictures shared by Yusuf Abramjee on Twitter, the incident happened in the early hours of Wednesday. It remains unclear if there were any casualties during the crime but South Africans are not happy with the incident.

“Yeses. How did they know there is a safe mara?”
“To fill up 50-55lt tank is around R900+. Where do businesses keep their money? No mattresses available.”
“A gang of 15, who saw them? I hope no lives were lost, I swear our townships are regressing at super speed.”
“They will keep coming back for more. Government should just hand death sentence to anyone caught in these kinds of acts.”
“Someone skipped his weekly protection fee. It's an act of hooliganism. If you miss paying protection fees they target your business. Doing business in a township is very very risky.”
“Christmas is around the corner. So, we will see lots of this happening.”
