It alleged that the van was moving personal belongings.
The video sparked some outrage, but others suggested it might all be above board.
A video showing a police van allegedly relocating personal belongings has sparked debate on social media. Twitter account @RSATruth shared the video yesterday. It accompanied it with the caption:
To the #southafrican #police #minister #BhekiCele @SAPoliceService – Is this an approved personal belonging relocation whilst victims of #crime are neglected because there are no police vehicles available?

Maybe this trailer was impounded together with the goods and it was being taken to the station as evidence. Perhaps, we must stop taking vidz and post on social media to gain fame.
