A man suffered a stroke a few years ago and was deemed unfit for work. His determination is seeing him still earn an income and he was commended via social media today.
Patrick Malaza suffered a major physical setback a few years ago when he was hit by a stroke.
After working at the Silver Lakes golf estate for nearly 20 years, he was now incapacitated.
However, Malaza’s will to work has seen him carve out continuous opportunities for himself.
The caddy continued to journey to the golf estate every day until he was able to eventually walk comfortably and complete a round of golf.
The majority of golfers at the club were aware that Malaza would no longer possess the strength to carry a golf bag so they arrange a cart for him to drive.
One Facebook post recognised this and was shared by the Positive relationships in SA group.
Hennie Muller shared the post within the group and it highlighted that Malaza is blessed with work almost daily as golfers often utilise his services.
The post also praised the 3 gentlemen who employed Malaza for the day, allowing him to drive their golf cart while they walked through the course.
Briefly.co.za generally notes a very positive reaction to the group’s post and this one was no different.
Ntombi Gibson said, “Great story ..... U r true gentlemen. Thanks guys for the act of humanity and empathy. May God bless u.”
Grizaan Van Rensburg added, “God wants his children to help one another. The strong can help the weak to still feel worthy.”
