- A young man desperately needed data to access online learning material
- A young woman learnt of his dilemma and blessed him with airtime as well as airtime as an added bonus
- The student shared his gratitude via social media and the story started trending
A young man was in a desperate situation due to the nationwide lockdown and took to social media to share his story.
Muzi Ngwenya attends Rhodes University and he was informed that online classes would commence from Monday due to the lockdown.
In order to access some of the learning material, Muzi required data, but lacked the necessary funds.
He opened up on his plight in one of the university's forums and a kind young lady came to his aid.
Steph Stretch learnt of Muzi's need and generously blessed him with the 15 megabytes of data he requested, but added R150 in airtime as a bonus.
Muzi was blown away by Steph's kindness and took to the #ImStaying Facebook group to share the beautiful story.
Zee Zemvelo Zanothando Khumalo said,
"Rhodents are great people!! One couldn't be more proud of being in a university filled with such great people."
Stephen Allcock donated even more data towards the student:
"Have some extra data from an ex Rhodes Law graduate. Hope your studies go well."
Lungi Shigo Msusa lauded the generous woman:
"Steph Stretch, Nelson Mandela loved education. Politics aside you are a leader too."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that a beautiful Walter Sisulu University (WSU) student, who was simply identified by her handle @LillyMkiva, had taken to social media to share how much data she received for online learning.
The young woman revealed that the university called on students to engage in online classes, but only provided 10MB of data.
