Namibia – A video showing petrol attendants at an Engen garage beating up an unknown man with sticks has resurfaced on social media.
According to the person who posted the video, the man being beaten up allegedly used the k-word. However, the incident occurred in January 2017 in Namibia after the man allegedly refused to pay for services before assaulting an attendant at the petrol station.
South African tweeps have had differing responses to the video. While some thought it was time to share jokes, others believed that the severity of the usage of the k-word and the assault should be taken more seriously.

Petrol attendants are the nicest people and if I see them behave like this I know that the guy on a receiving end really crossed the line pic.twitter.com/HcZgvREVAu

@MpondoPercy tweeted: “I guess they not gonna get fired. Because the video is only showing them beating him. That’s not fair, South Africa will still have a problem. He is still a human being.”
