  • Epic local live commentary during yesterday’s Cape Town riot [amateur video]
    Posted by on Oct 31st, 2013

    Ok so i was gonna post some serious story about the rioting and looting that took place yesterday in Cape Town central, but this is way better. In fact it is glorious. If you aren’t aware then let me fill you in. There was service delivery protest yesterday and apparently some ANC councillor told protesters that the best place to riot would be in the centre of town and in St Georges Mall. Things started off quietly, but quickly escalated into a mob running through the streets breaking car windows and looting street vendors.

    That’s when this amatuer footage was captured from the Absa building. The running commentary is a thing of beauty though. Dude is a like a Cape Town version of David Attenborough.

    ‘GTA Cape Town in the hizzay’

    Haha!

    That deserves a standing slow clap.

    Well played Spenelo..well played.

    Oh and i may as well throw in this pic from @RickyByNight that i thought captured the riots from the best angle.

    Amazing.

    This is such bad timing … we’re in Summer and tourists are arriving every minute …

    This sets such a bad example to what can be expected in our beautiful city …

    Corruption everywhere…

    Not impressed
