On Wednesday, a lady, Nomvelo Nyaba, took to the #ImStaying Facebook group to gush about continuing the legacy of her dad - who started working as a builder when he was still a teenager.

Her post read:

"I'm staying because I'll make sure I build RDP houses for everyone who is in need. My father started building houses at the age of 17, so I'm also building houses at the age of 19."
