The nation groaned in unison when four top-level police officers couldn’t figure out their left from right, but it inspired the Police Challenge which will make you chuckle.
South Africa (17 January 2020) – The number of times ridiculous things happen on live television is cringeworthy, and it can really get you down if you let it. However, South Africans refuse to let the man get them down.
Kelebohile Ernestacia Azariah Crisp has shared a video that is going viral. It is a new challenge set to lighten the mood after four officers made a directional blunder at the funeral of business icon Dr Richard Maponya. The moment was caught on live TV and quickly ended up on social media and being sent via WhatsApp.
The SAPS feel the moment was regrettable and have been left to feel embarrassed by the blunder. While the mistake was cringeworthy, some South Africans have been rather brutal about it, a little more than necessary. So it warms our hearts to see the lighter side of the blunder.
Kelebohile and her friends decided to give South Africa a reason to chuckle. They lined up and attempted to recreate the blunder calling it the Police Challenge. While filming the challenge, you can see they can barely keep a straight face, and someone outwardly chuckles at the end.
Hopefully, the SAPS will learn from this blunder and South Africans will be a little kinder when mistakes are made. After all, we are all only human, and many people struggle with their left and right still!
