A local man has headed online to share snaps of the incredible improvements he's made to his elderly parents' home. While it's not clear if the young many simply made a few alterations or moved the family into a new home altogether, the results were definitely eye-catching.
Heading online, @Lebzit shared the good news.
"Some call it Black Tax. I call it Black Success," he captioned the inspirational post.
While many social media users felt touched by the man's post, it quickly sparked a heated debate. Many social media users headed to the comments section and shared their own thoughts about whether or not it was necessary to build their parents a house.
Check out some of the comments below:
"It's an illustration of what you can do if you are not such a bum with your money."
"You even upgraded the neighbour's houses and took out the street pole uyaspana mfo."
"All roofs of neighbours have changed as well. Well done to the kids in this hood for upgrading their parents' houses."
"This isn't the same house, but let's focus on the fact that upgrading Kini isn't black tax, it's called responsibility. Salute bafo, kwande."
"Black tax is not a negative notion. No need to gloat and throw shade. Do good and take pride in it. Walk your journey in your own shoes because you won't ever walk in any other's shoes."
"In life it's always like that, while others will congratulate you, others will look for something to attack you about.... well-done brother, that's awesome job well-done."
