Some people use their powers of deception to gain rank or money, and some just use it for a bite of that Kentucky goodness. A 27-year-old man from South Africa was arrested recently for eating at KFC for free for a year.
The news was brought to light by Kenyan journalist Teddy Eugene on Twitter.
This man would reportedly tell employees that he was sent from the KFC headquarters for a quality check on the food being served.
He would repeat the same story at different KFC outlets, and managed to eat free every day for a whole year.
If the cops hadn't caught up with him, his diet would have!

The man's name has not been revealed, but he was a student of the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. Apparently, all he had to do was act confident (and never order the vegan wings).
😂😂😂 He is a legend and is now very experienced taster. KFC should employ him— Lee Kirichu (@LeeKirichu) May 12, 2019
Am trying to imagine the mood and reaction of the judge who'll try this case— Ombongi James (@Jimlox) May 13, 2019
It appears the Hamburglar's got some stiff competition!
