[WATCH] Heavily armed private security escort man to rumoured tender meeting
What appears to be an unidentified businessman was caught on camera walking towards what insiders say is a tender meeting at Endumeni Municipality in Dundee, KZN with a posse of heavily armed security guards.
Some social media users have reacted in amusement at this 'private army' surrounding him while other expressed shock that armed guards can be seen surrounding him as he walks - questioning whether this is legal?
Others commented that the political killings in the area may be a reason for these precautions.
Tenders in South Africa have become known as a lucrative means of making money and are at times believed to be secured by less than ethical means.
But Twitter users suggest it looks like this man is 'going to war.'
