On Tuesday night, City of uMhlathuze councillor Henning de Wet wrote this on his Facebook page:

Municipal spokesperson Bongani Gina says others have also been arrested for public offences. 

"It affects more than just businesses, but it also affects the image of the city and town. It also infringes the rights of other people. You go with your kids to the mall and you don't want them exposed of an old man's genitals. That's public indecency and that may be traumatic to the kids."

Twitter has since gone on a rampage sharing how SAFFAs can be fined anywhere up to R40,000 for urinating in public. 

So the next time you really need to go while on a road trip, make sure to think about if it's worth breaking the bank...
