A video circulating on social media shows police storming into a mosque to arrest a group of men for violating the lockdown regulations.
Up to six police officers storming into a mosque to arrest a group of men who were praying. The video caption says the incident took place at a mosque in Pretoria West.
There could be up to 20 men praying together in close proximity, a direct contravention of the lockdown regulations — which prohibit public gatherings.
In the video, police officers, with masks and other protective gear can be seen entering a mosque.
Once the police officers were inside, they call for a group of about 20 men to get down flat on the ground, which they willingly do.
Police start shouting “you are all under arrest, you think our president is crazy”.
“You are under arrest for contravening the COVID-19 regulations," One officer said.
Another officer asked a man on the floor if he thought he was bigger than the president, to which the man answered no.
The video ends.
