Everyone knows that young people are crazy and do questionably insane stuff at times in the name of being young, and sub cultures and social trends grow out of such insanity.

Let me introduce you to the Izikhothane; groups of young black South Africans, who spend a fortune on expensive clothes and luxury items, then destroy them publicly to gain social status. This trend has been going on for quite a while, and what’s crazy about it is that most of the youngsters who partake in this trend are unemployed, so they rely on their already cash-strapped families to feed their fetish which helps them fit into the sub-culture.

Check out the investigation into the Izikhothane, which was done by ETV‘s 3rd Degree, for more insight into the trend:

      1. these kids looks like monkeys in colorful cloths. they behave like monkeys as well. Maybe the should take the money the spend on crap on a decent Education. Shame to think there are so many fools behaving like this
