WATCH: Scorned wife clings to car bonnet as man drives away with 'mistress'

A scorned wife has been filmed clinging desperately to the bonnet of a car, as her allegedly cheating husband tried to drive away with another woman.

The husband and wife were filmed mid-argument, yelling loudly at each other in front of concerned onlookers.

The man then gets in the car with his alleged mistress and drives off, but not before his wife jumps on the bonnet of the car.

The wife was seen on the bonnet of the car on a busy road in Pretoria, South Africa with other motorists left confused by the bizarre ordeal.

Norah Pitje, who posted the video on Facebook, claimed: “This women found her man with his 'side chick'."

“She somehow jumped on the car and the idiot man protecting his side chick so badly drove with her on his bonnet," she alleged.

Another clip shows how the car stopped further down the road as crowds gathered to watch the dispute.

It has been suggested the woman owns the car, but that is not confirmed.
