A 27-year-old unidentified man in South Africa was reportedly arrested after targeting KFCs for a year. He told staff he was testing food standards for headquarters and would walk in from a limo wearing a suit, according to local news. He had a clipboard and would walk into the back of the kitchen before taking notes and sampling food.
A KFC employee told Xpouzar that, “When he arrived we will all try to act our best so that we don’t piss off man from head office, he was so convincing because he was so confident and even colleagues from other KFCs knows him. When he comes in he rushed to the kitchen and check everything, taking notes and then ask for samples of whatever he wants. He probably worked for KFC before because he knows everything.”
The man was said to have an ID card with “Head office” on it and pretended to be quality-testing the meals while bagging a free dinner, reported Daily Active Kenya.
In response to a tweet by Kenyan journalist Teddy Eugene about the bizarre news, many have called the unknown man a legend and that “he should be knighted, not arrested!!” one user wrote.

“Not all heroes wear capes,” someone else wrote. Others are surprised the stunt lasted for a whole year, saying that the employees should be responsible, not the other way around.
