Zimbabwean 'HARD WORKER' Arrested For Doing This In MZANSI - SOUTH AFRICA

South Africa - The theft of copper cables in Mzansi has increased at a shocking rate due to the increased value for scrap metal. This lucrative business has especially become a daily routine for illegal foreigners who cut the copper from the source, after digging trenches. Stolen copper is very valuable, because it can be easily reused to make fibre optics and high-value plumbing and electrical parts. This comes as another Zimbabwean who is alleged to be 37 years old, has been caught trying to dig up electricity cables. A wide assortment of building materials contain copper, including heating and air conditioning units, plumbing, gutters, water tanks, electrical components, etc. All of these items are popular targets for copper thieves, especially illegal foreigners from across the border, who make money by selling copper to scrap yards. More often than not the damage caused during the theft vastly exceeds the value of the stolen copper, but this does not prevent the thieves. Let's hope justice will be served for the tax payers who lose millions because of illegal foreigners.
