- The country is going into lock-down mode from this Friday
- It's going to be a tough and long three weeks for hawkers and street vendors who depend on their daily sales
- Somizi Mhlongo helped one out by buying all their stock
The nationwide lock-down is going to be tough for all, but especially street vendors and hawkers.
Media personality Somizi Mhlongo did a good deed by ensuring that he helped a street vendor.
The star bought the vendor's entire stock.
In a video posted to Instagram TV, Somizi said, “I am doing my part and encouraging people to do their part. Go to the vendors first and support them.'Buy what you can, what you need, but also what you can get at any other supermarket."
"The supermarkets are going to survive, they (vendors) won't survive the 21 days."
Somizi is known for his wild, fun and care-free personality, but this beautiful gesture really touched people's serious sides.
One South Africa (Osa) leader Mmusi Maimane responded, "This is powerful. Let’s all do our part. Thank you, Somizi."
Yvonne Chaka Chaka wrote, “Well done Tsala (Friend). Ubuntu lobo (That's having humanity)."
