- A local woman has headed online to thank the kind couple who took her in for one whole week
- The desperate lady had been struggling to commute to work following widespread taxi violence in the Western Cape
- Mzansi took to the comments section, thanking the sweet couple for their generosity
One couples generous act has had an incredible impact on a local woman who headed online to share her story. The lady had been struggling to commute to work following widespread taxi violence in parts of the Western Cape.
At first, the young woman worried about the state of her employment as she struggled to find transport and even got robbed on her way to work once. Luckily, the good-hearted Mr and Mrs Mantseye had made a room available for the ever-so-grateful woman named Nana Mazibuko.
"...But fortunately the Mantseye Family allowed me to stay over their lovely home and hosted me for a full week since their home is much closer to my work," Nana writes.
"I must say it was one of the best weeks of my life and i got spoiled rotten i felt like i was living in a hotel with everything that has been going on in our country and my community it really felt good to be away from everything a bit," she adds.

Nana went on to share that she's back home safe but will eternally be grateful for the little week away she was given by the kind young couple.
She also went on to share her wish for Mzansi, saying she desperately hopes things will go back to normal soon.

Proud man shows off the house he built for parents: #BlackSuccess
In some more inspirational news, Briefly News previously reported that 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."
