CCTV Footage Shows KZN Man Losing The Plot In “Guard Hut Rage” Video [Video]

Story from: 2oceansvibe.com

Angered at the “illegal” structure, acclaimed South African mountaineer Sean Wisedale used his 4X4 to “rip a wooden guard hut from its base and dragged it several hundred metres”.

In case you have no idea who he is, Wisedale’s claim to fame is being the first South African to climb the highest mountain on each of the seven continents.

Wisedale subsequently appeared the Verulam Magistrate’s Court last week on charges of malicious damage to property, reports Times LIVE.

Wisedale said he didn’t maliciously destroy anything‚ and that the placement of the hut was inherently illegal. He also claimed the hut, situated in Bellamont Road in Umdloti, KZN, would “do little to combat crime if an unarmed resident could simply tow it away”:

“For the record‚ the moving of the security hut from where it was illegally positioned on public land was not unlawful. And it was not maliciously destroyed‚” Wisedale told TimesLIVE.

Wisedale described the erection of the hut as radical and unilateral.

“It was done without following the proper community participation process. Simply put‚ a security company began to control access to our public road by setting up a checkpoint with the view to installing a boom gate. It has altered the status quo of the security in our neighbourhood overnight.

“I am not afraid of controversy. I am not afraid to stand up for a cause for which I believe needs attention‚ no matter how unpopular it makes me. Especially when it comes to drawing attention to unlawful acts that impinge on my circle of control. Unfortunately‚ I am also fiery and can be seriously undiplomatic when provoked‚” Wisedale added.

As a solution, he suggested working with all stakeholders affected in this matter‚ volunteering his time and experience to find a long term solution.

Wisedale was released on R500 bail and will appear again in court next month. Forming the basis of the police investigation is CCTV from a nearby complex which captured dear Wisedale’s antics.

The video may take a moment to load so wait it out:

But this isn’t even the first time the motivational speaker and filmmaker has been caught up in scandal. Back in 2013, Wisedale drove his 4×4 “repeatedly into his neighbour’s gate during a late night party”:

The din had upset Wisedale‚ who had recently returned from scaling Russia’s Mount Elbrus.

After obliterating the gate‚ he reportedly urinated on the thwarted pile of iron. He subsequently apologised to his neighbours and criminal charges brought against him were withdrawn.

Seems like Wisedale’s got a fiery temper, no?
