2018 has thrown up numerous challenges for South Africans. We’ve battled load-shedding, state capture corruption and a drought crisis. However, these 3 memorable moments warmed our hearts and gave us reasons to smile.
Simba became an overnight social media sensation for his motivational efforts at a park run venue in Roodepoort.
The video of Simba cheering on strangers and pushing them to keep running went viral.
Simba is a part-time university lecturer and PhD student.
Jeremeo Le Cordeur
Le Cordeur shared a heart-warming video which shows him taking his Ouma Lily for a ride in his new car.
The Facebook post went viral with 4 500 likes and more than 500 comments.
His 93-year-old grandmother, Lily, helped to raise him and she was naturally the first person he wanted to show his new ride to.
Business Malcolm x
The businessman has earned huge popularity for his surprise visits at public places and randomly giving people money.
He has been dubbed “the people’s blesser” as a result of his philanthropy.
Malcolm revealed earlier this year that it was a struggle for his fiancé to adjust to his way of life.
She was initially suspicious of his late night rendezvouses but eventually realised it was all for a good cause to help those in need.
He has been donating to the poor for many years but the general public have become more aware of him due to social media posts in 2018.
