Despite all the reported doom and gloom as well as the political hype, South Africans generally get along for the most part.
In fact, many people are blessed to share amazing relationships that traverse racial and social barriers.
Brendan Brokensha detailed one such special relationship that he shares with a family he befriended a decade ago.
Brokensha met Sifiso and the Zikhali family when he moved house ten years ago.
He was immediately embraced by the family despite their differences in race.
Sifiso, who Brokensha regards as a brother, recently got married and invited Brokensha as a special guest.
Both Brokensha and his fiancee were bestowed the honour of speaking at the colourful ceremony.
Brokensha shared details and some lovely photos of the ceremony via the #ImStaying Facebook group and the post went viral.
Lerato Gaoganediwe loved the story and the photos:
"This is mooi man, you guys looked beautiful."
