On Friday, a woman, Marcia, took to social media to post a snap of a TUT student, Sbu. The image shows Sbu selling coffee on the streets, Briefly.co.za gathered.
Marcia revealed Sbu sold coffee on the streets to generate funds, which he uses to fund his studies.
"I met this guy this morning at the corner of the Reserve Bank building in Pretoria (Prinsloo & Church Street). His name is Sbu. He is an HR student at TUT and in the mornings he sells coffee to help fund his studies. Very good coffee by the way," she captioned the post.
The photo inspired social media users, who applauded Sbu's determination to complete his studies.
Faruk Hoosain, who goes by the Twitter handle @FarukHoosain, commented: "I wonder if he'll be offended if a box of coffee sachets are given to him as a 'random act of kindnes' gift ? I looove his enterprising spirit! Is he only around on Sundays?"
Another tweep, @Mappz_ep, added: "Inspiring indeed, this needs to reach a lot of people."
