A VIDEO circulating online showing a bridge collapsing in DR Congo during the inauguration ceremony has gone viral and led to hundreds of comments.

The video shared by Twitter account @AfricaFactsZone shows the moment a bridge, which was being commissioned in DR Congo by local officials, collapses with local dignitaries on it.

It has amassed over 3k retweets and 11k likes so far.

“Bridge collapses while being commissioned in DR Congo,” the Twitter account wrote alongside the first of two videos.

The collapse occurs as the suited official cuts the ribbon.

The video led to a range of comments.

One person wrote: “Don’t be surprised if the cost of this bridge is more than a million dollars of taxpayers’ money. Here is the Zimbabwean counterpart, honourable Patrick Chinamasa of Zanu pf government opening a bin.”

Another wrote: “Imran Khan inaugurating trees planted inside a hotel built illegally over a river about to flood.”

“Welcome to Congo 🤣🤣” said another.

“It’s like the ribbon was the one holding the bridge together 😂😂😂😂😂” another person said.

While another person wrote: “Butifal African engineering.”

The viral video of the bridge collapse in DR Congo comes after another made the rounds on social media showing a young girl left heartbroken at a Spanish football game.

The heartbreaking video shared on Wednesday, August 24, shows a young girl crying after the mascot of Malaga Football Club failed to give her a high-five.

Believed to have been captured at Malaga’s last home game against Las Palmas on Monday, August 22, the video shows Súper Boke, Málaga CF’s new official mascot as of January 2022, high-fiving another youngster but failing to do the same for the young girl.
