A Limpopo school pupil reached out on social media to ask for help. He appealed to Mzansi for grey or black school pants. The desperate Grade 11 pupil also asked for size 6 school shoes. Mzansi social media users were ready to show up and help the teen.

Twitter user TshepangMaweng took to social media to make the appeal. He posted on the "O jewa keng?" tweet which has helped many others go viral and get assistance in the past. His post got over 1 000 retweets. He went on to say:

"I am a bit taller than most of my peers and also my mother can alter clothes...so please. I'd really appreciate y'all's help so much and I assure you that it won't go to waste as I am a very bright kid(and would be even better if I didn't play so much, according to my mother)"

Social media users stepped in to help the young man out. Twitter user ShimmyHarris said:
