- A cab-hailing driver became the toast of the town after taking a German couple on a tour of Port Elizabeth
- In an inspirational social media post, he explained how misguided they were and that they had the wrong impression of South Africa
- He then volunteered his services to show them what Mzansi is really about
In a world where information is at our finger tips and the power of the internet can be harnessed so easily, people around the world are still misinformed about various things.
A common misconception about South Africa is that animals freely roam the streets and that all South Africans are black.
Nkululeko 'Stene' Nzeku shared an inspirational Facebook post, which detailed how he addressed the situation when a German couple fell into the same trap.
Nzeku met the German tourists while working as an Uber driver and his chat with them quickly made him realise that they had the wrong impression of Mzansi.
He took it upon himself to educate them and offered them a tour through Port Elizabeth the following day.
The impact of his gesture has left a lasting impression, as the three of them are still in contact and the couple are excited for his visit to their home nation.
A screenshot of the post can be seen below.
Briefly.co.za noted the huge impact, as nearly 10 000 people have liked the post.
Elizabeth Sutherland said,
"Well done ambassador for the Cape area."
Elizabeth Bosman added,
"Well done. It amazes me that, in today's age with Google people are still so uninformed. Go visit them."
Natalie Nikki Isobel Ntuli jokingly asked,
"Is it me or do u have just a teenyweeny crush on Elvina?"
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that the Tourism Business Council of SA is asking the government to lift restrictions on international travel earlier than initially planned.
The council projects a R195 billion loss if the sector is not fully operational by September.
