In Memes: Twitter reacts to #YobeMzansi Thabang who stabbed people all because of R20
The prisoner, Thabang, said he’s apologising because he assaulted elderly people and they did not deserve to be assaulted. These people allegedly died because of a R20 that was owed to Thabang.
To say that Tuesday night’s episode of Yobe left Twitter shook is the understatement of the year, because it’s not every day where a criminal asks for forgiveness from the family of a person he stabbed for a mere R20. Yes! A whole twenty rand!
Tweeps didn’t think Thabang’s apology was sincere. It also didn’t help his case when he mentioned that he was also hoping to get a lighter sentence after his apology.
Obvs, Twitter thought that the story didn’t add up and they had the memes to match.

We understand that R20 buys a loaf of bread and some atchar on the side, but to take a life because of that? Sjoe! Twitter felt the victim was a far better person for being willing to listen to Thabang’s apology and consider forgiving him.
At least he got closure.
