Meet Sure Kamhunga, the man who is moving Mzansi with his inspirational and uplifting tweets.
In some quarters, journalists have a bad reputation for being sensationalist, insensitive and dishonest.
Sure Kamhunga is the very epitome of what the industry should stand for – honesty, integrity and with a purpose of changing people’s lives for the better.
If “fake news” eats at the very fabric of journalism then Kamhunga is the man stitching it back together.
Many Twitter users have become notorious for their use of provocative material and militant responses – in fact, Twitter battles are a daily occurrence.
Kamhunga’s use of the social media platform is understated, yet refreshing.
The Zimbabwean born media relations practitioner moved to South Africa in 2005 and shares inspirational stories of ordinary people across the African continent.
Many of Kamhunga’s tweets have inspired Briefly.co.za articles – beautiful accounts of Africans overcoming obstacles and making their mark in a meaningful way.
In addition to this, he regularly posts helpful information. Examples of this are resources for scholarships, guidance for job interviews and general safety tips.
Kamhunga’s status says it all: “Being useful to humanity is the ultimate worship. Be a blessing.”
Briefly.co.za decided to share a short overview of some of his tweets here.
