Cape Town – We finally have more on the story behind the “Hugo, bel die polisie” video that went viral last month.

According to Jacaranda FM, the video is actually more than a year old. Rian van Heerden and the Jacaranda FM Scenic Drive found out more about the infamous fight between a local family in Pretoria North.

The Scenic Drive team managed to track down the gentleman with the amputated leg, Wynand, who shared the inner details of the story. He said he was painting when he heard his wife, Ronel, screaming in the driveway.

When he went to investigate he found a number of people fighting. 


Ek wonder is dit in Danville of Brakpan?

Wynand said the fight started because of his son’s relationship with the blonde woman in the video. According to Wynand, his son and the blond woman were just friends. 

This was not what the blond woman’s boyfriend thought. He was under the impression that they were having an affair. 

The boyfriend then gathered his friends to come fight with Wynand’s son. 

Wynand told the Jacaranda FM team that at least now they can laugh about it, along with the rest of the country.

Here are some epics memes that have making the rounds on social media since the incident. 

If “Hugo bel die polisie” was a person 😂😂😂😂
