Last Tuesday, South Africa Live posted a video of a ‘jungle thief’ who was filmed hanging onto a moving truck while he attempted to rob it.
Social media users were left shocked over the man’s decision to put his own life at risk to commit a crime.
Dan Reddy commented: “Watching too much of fast n furious…. Bheki Diesel”
Wiza Clive Nkhata wrote: “But why is the person taking the video not alerting the truck driver….funny how you just watch a thief steal from your friends and act cool about it.”
However, we gathered some viewers pointed out the driver was also breaking the law.
Graham Mundell added: “Well overtaking around a corner they both deserve to go over the mountain.”
Eddie Mapeka wrote: “he overtook dangerously, on a double solid line n approaching a curve, ai! myb he was scared.”
Vuyo Jabulani Kwayiyo commented: “Isn’t the truck on the wrong side of the road while approaching a curve.”
Jeff Meneses said: “Notice the truck going over the barrier line and into the oncoming lane!! Then you have this clown with a death wish just begging for his life to be ended. Only in Africa surely.”
