A man has managed to make a success of himself by establishing the first black-owned taxi service in the sky.
With the economy struggling to regain strength and unemployment on the rise, a lot of people are starting their own companies to make ends meet.
One man, however, managed to start something which the City Press described as the "first of its kind" in the country.
Thokozani Miya, who refers to himself as an airplane maniac, is the founder of Neo Aviation, a South African company which offers affordable flights to more than 150 airports in the country.
Sure Kamhunga took to his official Twitter page to share Miya's exceptional success story.
"Thokozani Miya, founder of probably the first black owned air taxi service in SA called Neo Aviation. It flies up to 4 passengers per trip to more than 150 airports in SA, at R18 per kilometre. They are doing 40 hours weekly," he captioned the post.
Briefly.co.za gathered South Africans felt inspired by Miya's story and they congratulated him on social media.
Social media user @Joy_wa_Afrika commented: "Absolutely awesome fantastic. Well done Thokozani. South Africa needs more businessmen like you to eliminate the monopoly of pre democratic corporates. More new businesses to provide us with goods and services so we are no longer dependant on the monopolistic companies."
