Another scandal on the menu for KFC SA

Less than a month after the social media frenzy following video footage of chicken being hosed off on the cement floors at KFC in Braamfontein, another video has surfaced on social media that could further tarnish the franchise's reputation.

The video that surfaced shows footage of a KFC Umhlanga branch employee allegedly sharpening a knives on the pavement outside the outlet near a dustbin.

It is reported by News24 that the footage first appeared as a Facebook post on a restaurant review page. The video is alleged to have been filmed from a nearby hotel balcony.

The newsite reports that the video was uploaded by a Ashrana Chanderanberg who allegedly had the following to say when posting the clip:

“This is what happens every morning @KFC Coastlands Umhlanga.... "We residence [sic] off Horizon view and Ridgeton Towers back of KFC Coastlands instead of awakening to the smell of KFC we awaken by this agonizing sounds of sharpening knives....”

Twitterverse responds:

This controversy comes only a two weeks after the MD of KFC Africa, Doug Smart, apologised for the footage showing it's Braamfontein employees washing down what he claims were discarded chicken pieces on its branch floors.
