South African superstar comedian Trevor Noah, is at it again with his jokes, but this time he roasts the 10111.
While he was recording the The Daily Show, Noah compared the two emergency services, the American 911 and Mzansi’s 10111.
He says the Americans think that 911 is an instant solutions to everything, he further said that the 10111 operators should be brought America to show them flames.
Noah says South Africa’s 10111 emergency services call centre operators are not as efficient as compared to the 911 operators.
Many South Africans have commented on the video post, agreeing with Noah. Nontobeko Lynnette Mhlongo said: “I called 10111 once to report that I suspected that someone had passed out or died on our corner.
“Firstly they respond by just saying “hello”. No “10111 what’s your emergency” or “This is the South African Police Services how can I help you”. Just a simple “hello”.
“They asked me what I was doing there? Where was I going when I saw this person? How long has the person been out there for and is anyone else around? How do I know if he’s dead or passed out? Then they asked if I can get to the nearest police station to write a statement.”
One Kenyan fan revealed that it’s worse in Kenya where “they’ll tell you the police car is out of petrol, but if you go by the station and pick them up or pay for gas, they’ll come…”
Noah was talking to his Daily Show audience in the US during his award-winning ‘Between the Scenes’ slot.
