Certain parts of the country have experienced severe weather conditions this past week but not everyone is bummed out about the cold, wet conditions. One man decided to make the most of a flood that wreaked havoc in an informal settlement in Cape Town.

The man used a makeshift ‘paddleboard’ to travel between the flooded shacks. He was filmed sitting on a chair while manoeuvring through the waters.

The video was shared on Twitter by social media user, @_Jakie_LFC, who revealed it had been filmed in Cape Town. However, @_Jakie_LFC did not disclose when or in which informal settlement the footage was captured.

Social media users were divided on the footage and they gave their two cents’ worth in the comment section.

Twitter user, @ThisBitchBeMad, commented:

“20-something years of democracy and people are living like this. Pretty effed if you ask me.”

Previously, reported the SA Weather Service issued a warning to the Cape provinces about an expected cold front on Monday.

Part of the statement read:

“Capetonians can expect chilly, windy and wet conditions to resume on Monday, 13 July 2020, since yet another cold front will make landfall on the southern-western areas of the country.”

The warning was followed by a massive storm blowing into the Western Cape and it left destruction in its wake.

Several videos were posted on social media showing monstrous waves breaking the land-sea barriers and covering the ground with white foam.
