Some deemed the video hilarious and uniquely South African, while others shared their sadness over the incident. 

"It’s sad how poverty can strip you away of your dignity and make you vulnerable like this. I don’t think anyone would voluntarily choose to put themselves in harm’s way like that," wrote one Twitter user.

Another stated: "I wish we can find her I would like to bless her with a very very big Xmas gift! I see my mom in her..may God bless her soul."
