Driver should ve been more alert, i mean 3 left turns and 2 right turns before you get home should get you worried.— Nkosi Scott (@Muskidd) January 29, 2020
This incident comes 3 weeks after NewsLiteSA previously reported on the same method of theft.
It’s alleged that some staff working at certain airports are giving tip-offs to criminals, this is unconfirmed however those on social media are speculating these thoughts.
This will never stop until they clean out all the corrupt people working in the airport. Only way these thugs get info is from inside the airport.— Goolam (@goolammv) January 29, 2020
Until our @HomeAffairsSA @SAPoliceService at.OR Tambo is run like Australia one we will continue to witness this thuggish behavior. Cleaners, Security officers, SAPS, and Home affairs officials are crooks there & need to be rotated timeously.— Ntsieni Patrice Lumumba Mudzielwana (@NtsieniUnaado) January 29, 2020
