A video is going viral of two men taking out their road rage on a motorist in Durban traffic, with one of the men appearing to slap the victim at one point.

According to local reports in KwaZulu-Natal, the men – who had got out of their SUV to accost the man in a white car – are alleged to be bodyguards of a well known businessman named as Sibusiso Mpisane.

The Mercury newspaper reports that Mpisane says he does not condone the behaviour and has encouraged the victim to take up the incident with authorities.

The video was filmed by someone in a passing car, and uploaded on Wednesday.
