It looks typically South African, but I have never seen Brent Oil advertised anywhere here! Are you sure this is in fact local?

@Pensioner

The incident apparently took place in Bloemfontein… see short Afrikaans report here in “Die Burger”.

There are several Brent Oil filling stations in SA. Check out their website here.

Correction TIA, The one who kicked him in the head, was the driver, not another pedestrian.

My Apologies TIA, we don't have these filling stations here in Cape Town!

Thanks for pointing this out… When I first viewed the video I didn’t notice that it was the driver.

Correction has been made to the posting.

The sad thing here is that I am supposed to feel shock, but I feel absolutely nothing!!!

That is the sad part.

WRT the Russian Video - Brilliant.

I share your sentiments... I too feel absolutely nothing, as these are typical scenes we see almost on a daily basis in SA. We’re immune to this kind of violence.

Incidentally, I’ve noticed the incident has made headlines in several newspapers. The Star has it on their front page. The driver was apparently arrested on Saturday and appeared in the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court on Monday for assault – but he is on the streets again, scot free... due to a lack of evidence, can you believe it!?!

Real live episodes like these are seldom caught on camera, but when they do it should be utilized to the max to show the entire world what savages these people are. The pedestrian was, in all probability, from another African tribe, or maybe an illegal immigrant. It’s common knowledge that South African blacks have a xenophobic attitude towards people of other races and tribes, yet the liberal mind firmly believes that we can all live together in perfect harmony... What utter bullocks!!!

Not enough evidence? My eye!! Blind Freddy could have seen what happened there.

The fact that he got off scot-free doesn't surprise me one iota though. That is so typical of the useless judiciary over there.

Ask yourselves however, what would have happened to the driver had he been White. Totally different story, I can assure you.

Here’s the latest news on this issue, as reported by news24.com.

Taxi road rage video a YouTube hit
2012-03-08 10:02

Jana van der Merwe and Estée de Villiers, Volksblad

Bloemfontein - CCTV footage of a Bloemfontein minibus taxi driver driving into and then cruelly assaulting a pedestrian in a road rage incident in Andries Pretorius Street has attracted international attention after going viral on the internet.

Minibus taxi driver Aggrey Mojanaga, 43, appeared in the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court on a charge of assault on Monday, but the charge was provisionally withdrawn by the Free State director of public prosecutions due to a lack of evidence. The case may be reopened.

Volksblad has meanwhile removed the footage from YouTube at the request of Stanley Reizis, owner of the Brent Oil fuel station whose security cameras recorded the incident last week.

Reizis, a well-known businessman and developer, received calls from as far as Greece about the incident, and insists that the road rage attack had nothing to do with his fuel station. It took place in the road in which his business is situated, and the name of his business can be seen in the video.

Widely discussed

A Canadian, however, made a copy of the original video uploaded by Volksblad and posted it under the title "Brutal Road Rage Caught on CCTV in South Africa" on the video sharing site.

By Thursday morning, nearly 90 000 people had already viewed the video on YouTube.

The video has been posted on several national and international websites and has been discussed widely on radio stations, television and social media sites such as Twitter.

The American website Guyism also put the video in their humour section, saying that hopefully South Africa has anger management classes. Even Japanese and Dutch sites spread the video footage.

There has also been widespread outrage at the witnesses, who stood watching and failed to intervene in the incident. The victim was reportedly hospitalised, but has been discharged.

Police said the investigation into the driver of the taxi with the registration number DHK506FS would continue.

The first video from Bloemfontein shows at least 4 witnesses from what I see. What I do not see is any of them intervening, nor do I see anyone reaching for a cell-phone to call police.

I live and work in Auckland, to where I fled a few years ago from the rainbow nation. When showing my Sri Lankan colleague the video, he remarked that, despite his own country having being involved in a protracted civil war, he has never witnessed such inhumanity. His enlightened view of South Africa (I have shown him Louis Theroux's docco on Hillbrow and Diepsloot)is heartening, as reality is now shaping his view of mandela and his marxist chums. Sadly, demented chickens and yapping daschhunds will keep on with the "we are all equal" mantra....

Operation Vula, its Secret Safari, and Zuma’s band of comrades - Dec. 2013
During 1986 the ANC launched an underground operation called Operation Vula. A lesser-known fact is that it continued to operate after Nelson Mandela's release in February 1990, and for three years after his speech in August 1990 when he reiterated the total commitment of the ANC, Umkhonto we Sizwe and the SACP to the Groote Schuur Minute.

Heritage Day Photographs (Voortrekker Monument) - Sept. 2013
This posting includes a few photographs taken on Heritage Day 2013. The posting introduces an unusual but beautiful new structure called QUO VADIS? (with the question mark) which I’m sure many readers have never heard of.

The Yellow-Bucket Marula Tree: A Mystery Solved! - Oct. 2013
I came across a rather strange phenomenon one day while travelling along the R561 route between Tolwe and Baltimore in the Limpopo province of South Africa. A small yellow bucket was attached high-up in a branch of a Marula tree, hence the name of this posting. It’s a real funny story which I’m sure most readers will enjoy - as much as I enjoyed compiling the article  - (with illustrations).

Pretoria’s Monument for Victims of Terrorism - July 2013
Many people (including myself) had almost forgotten about a noteworthy monument in Pretoria that stood at the entrance of the old Munitoria building on the corner of Van der Walt and Vermeulen Streets (now renamed Lilian Ngoyi and Madiba Streets). When the Munitoria building was demolished on 7 July 2013 nobody could tell me whether the monument was still standing or not, so I decided to go look for myself.

Remembering The Battle of Delville Wood - July 2013
14 July marks a day when the South African 1st Infantry Brigade got engaged in the 1916 (WW1) Battle of the Somme, in France. The battle was one of the largest of World War I, in which more than a million men were wounded or killed, making it one of humanity's bloodiest battles. One specific encounter during this battle, known as The Battle of Delville Wood, is of particular importance to South Africa. The posting includes a comprehensive article (with pictures) compiled and written by Petros Kondos.
