If you are heading to South Africa it may be worth putting your fitness regime on hold. It has been reported that a young athlete Chumani Maxwele. was running along De Waal Drive, Cape Town, when he was bundled into a black BMW belonging to President Jacob Zuma’s security team.
He allegedly had a bag put over his head once in the car and was then detained by Police for 24 hours and was interrogated.
What was his crime? The ministry spokesman Zweli Mnisi, has stated that he pointed his middle finger at the president. Mnisi claimed that the gesture was the equivalent of swearing and showing disrespect.
So if hiring a car during the World Cup avoid road rage and gesticulating angrily, if you are going jogging wear mittens!
