Twitter legend: South African man arrested for lying and eating free KFC for a year

A South African man was arrested for eating at KFC for free for an entire year. The man used to tell the employees that he was sent from the headquarters for quality assurance.

A 27-year-old student was arrested for eating at KFC for free for a year in South Africa. He used to tell the employees that he was sent from the KFC headquarters for quality check.

The man whose name has not been disclosed was a student of the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. He ate for free every day for a year from different KFC outlets by repeating the same story every time.

Every single time he used to walk into a KFC and with a lot of confidence and tell the employees that he was sent from the KFC headquarters for quality assurance of the food served in the restaurant.

The news was shared by Kenyan journalist, Teddy Eugene on his official Twitter account. The tweet was captioned, “South African man arrested for eating at KFC free for a year by saying head office sent him to taste if they are up to standard.”


Since he shared it, the thread became viral. At the time of filing, it had already been retweeted 3,864 times and had over 7,156 likes.

Twitter is losing its mind over how easily he fooled the KFC employees at various outlets and for how long he was able to do it.
