Mzansi twitter users came for the DJ and music producer Maphorisa as they blame him for the mistake that occurred at the funeral of businessman, Richard Maponya. Recall that during the televised funeral of the celebrated businessman, the South African Police Officers (SAPS) had a major hilarious moment when they fumbled at delivering their parade.
This event was later shared on social media as it was a mess and didn’t present the South African police in a good light.
Like the lack of coordination was not enough, few moments later another video of 10 policemen struggling to carry out the coffin surfaced on the internet.
In the video, the police officers were seen with sweat rolling down their faces, they appeared weak and lack the strength needed to protect the country and it’s citizens, according to South Africans, armed forces are supposed to be strong and well coordinated, both situations sadly was very hilarious as the country’s armed forces appeared incompetent.
There were lots of reactions about the event on social media, some from top celebrities, including Siv Ngesi who shared the video on IG with the caption:
F*** South Africa, we are in such kak! Look at this incompetence! Imagine these guys at war!
Bryan Habana replied with:
I don’t know whether to laugh or cry
Disappointed Bonnie Mbuli reacted with:
Wow, what a joke , what is this?
A user wrote:
Total show of shame and a joke.
One reaction stood out from all, a twitter user jokingly blamed the blunder on DJ Maphorisa who produced the smash song Phoyisa.
Bafethu I managed to get the audio off one of the mics to hear what the cops were whispering to each other during the blunder. This is @DjMaphorisa ‘s fault 👀🇿🇦😂#Mabena #SAPS #Umphakathi #RichardMaponya pic.twitter.com/C4lZ346Z3B
