KFC South Africa Closes Due To Power Cuts As Electricity Load Shedding Reaches New Levels, Mzansi Reacts
Unsurprisingly, the announcement that KFC is closing down some of its branches was met with disbelief and humour by South Africans.
South Africans, already reeling from hours of prolonged load shedding, chose to respond to KFC’s woes with humour.
Some made fun of the fast food giant and advised it to contract locals to do the frying if it is failing to cope. Others also called on KFC to just share its recipe with the public instead of inconveniencing customers.
Some South Africans also questioned why KFC has failed to invest in alternative power solutions such as solar energy and industrial generators.
Below are some of the reactions by Mzansi to the announcement that KFC South Africa is closing down some of its stores due to power cuts.
