On Monday morning, a man, John Barnardt, took to the Facebook group #ImStaying to applaud a female Eskom worker on her hard and exceptional work.

Barnardt said the lady, who he identified simply as Agnes, managed to not only install a transformer by herself, but to do it in under an hour.

According to Barnardt, it took three men an entire day to do exactly the same job.

Barnardt wrote:

"Agnes from Eskom. Woman alone she installed a transformer in one hour where it took three men a whole day on a previous occasion. Let's give her credit, no one else in her company will."
