To the community’s surprise, the man had stolen all markings making it difficult to identify a grave. This has left many wondering where this man would sell the metal markings. Some believe the unidentified man wanted to sell the metal markings and get money for nyaope.

Others think poverty is pushing this man to the extremes hence resorting to stealing grave markings and selling them to local scrap yards. This incident has left Mzansi angry and others perceiving it as funny. It seems this is not the first time someone has stolen grave markings as some have experienced this before.

People on social media are commenting about the issue saying:

“I was a victim of these idiots on Easter weekend. It was hard finding my aunt’s grave cause of these idiots.”

“Why are those people just standing there and not dealing with him?”

“Now people must guess the graves of their loved ones. Scrap yards must also close if that is the case. The buyers of steel are also a big problem in SA, they accept everything nje.”

“The purpose is to sell the steel and buy nyaope, the country is losing war against the biggest pandemic Nyaope.”

“No respect at all. This is sickening, they must more him and he must show them where he sells those.”

Fortunately, the municipal authorities have records of the graveyard numbers and corresponding to names of the buried. So it can be rectified and people can identify the graves of their loved ones. However, this differs in rural areas hence it becomes hard to identify particular graves.
