- Ayanda Borotho has taken to social media to encourage all South African citizens to stand up and take responsibility for our future
- The actress and author believes we can't hold government responsible for everything
- She said we must also see where we can assist
Ayanda Borotho has advised Mzansi peeps to take responsibility for our own futures as we can't depend on government for everything.
The star said the Covid-19 crisis has made it more important than ever for us to help ourselves as well as our fellow man.
She said, “The truth of the matter is, the government does not have the capacity to help everybody who needs help at this time. It's not possible. The majority of South Africans live below the poverty line."
Ayanda continued, “We are also the government, let's not forget that. So let's collaborate our efforts and put together our resources to do our bit and play our part.”
The star's followers agreed wholeheartedly with her.
Check out a few of their comments below:
"Wow, Sisi, thank you for reminding us. We really need to play our part as citizens of South of Africa. "
"Ayanda, that was touching thank you for your efforts. May God bless you abundantly."
"Wow, you're such an inspiration Queen"
