1. Man treats himself to solo date to celebrate year of being single
A man decided to treat himself to a special celebration - the anniversary of being single. He took to social media to share pictures from his solo date to commemorate the occasion.
Social media users had mixed reactions to his post, others took the opportunity to shoot their romantic shots.
Twitter user Thando_Cu shared pictures from his picnic on the social media platform. His post went viral with over 9 000 likes. It got mixed responses from social media users. Many were amused while some celebrated with him.
2. Unathi opens up about how a young woman vandalised, scratched her car
Local media personality and Idols SA judge, Unathi Nkayi, shared in November last year how her car got 'keyed'. She knows who the person responsible is - she was seen on security footage - and Unathi is taking the matter the legal route.
However, there was still the matter of the damage to her car that had to be fixed as soon as possible. That's where Themba came in and Unathi decided to share with her fans just how he helped her.
Themba is a businessman and runs Airport Car Parking Services, which Unathi swears by. The company takes care of your car while you have to leave it behind when you fly around the country.
Unathi says Themba fixed her car for free, and all because of how she reacted to the young woman who vandalised her vehicle.

3. Kind man tracks down little girl, buys her a proper school uniform
Recently, Gauteng Survivors opened up about the kindness of a man who they identified as Gavin Khalima Khungwayo.
Social media was flooded with posts about kids who were going back to school. One little girl in particular stood out for Khungwayo.

Khungwayo tracked down the learner and travelled to her home town to buy her a new uniform. Take a look at Gauteng Survivors' post below:
4. Lotto CEO caught up in scandal: More millions allegedly paid to family
The National Lotteries Commission (NLC) has been caught up in a scandal following allegations of financial shenanigans. A non-profit organisation was allegedly used to funnel the funds with no sign of the money going towards its intended use.
The Citizen reports that an R11 million grant was paid over to a non-profit organisation, I Am Made for God's Glory, but R2 million was paid to a private company.
The sole director of Upbrand Properties is Kenneth Sithole, the cousin of the NLC CEO, Phillemon Letwaba. But this is not the first time allegations of this nature have been levied against Upbrand.
GroundUp previously accused the company of receiving a R15 million contract to build a rehab centre near Pretoria. Letwaba's brother Johannes had been a director of the company at the time but later resigned, leaving Keneilwa Maboa as the sole director.
5. AKA starts liking Bonang's pics after announcing Zinhle break-up
Briefly.co.za reported that AKA confirmed this week that he is no longer dating DJ Zinhle. The rapper now appears to be pining for his ex, Bonang Matheba.
He started liking her always-gorgeous Instagram pics as far back as about two weeks ago.
Fans are still upset with Super Mega for dropping Zinhle like a bad habit and are begging Bonang not to get back together with him.
If there's one couple peeps don't want to see rekindle their romance, it's this one.
