Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that a young man, Thato Lentsoe, is making Mzansi proud. The 25-year-old has been accepted to study international law in England. Lentsoe grew up in the dusty streets of Soweto and is the oldest of three siblings.

He was raised by a strong single mother and grew up in a home full of love.

He said: "I could talk about how difficult it is to be raised by a single parent, but that's the story of millions of young people in townships and rural areas, so that does not make me unique."

In other news, we've said it before and we'll say it again, South Africa has brilliant young minds who are doing the most to ensure a better future. Seven SA scholars were handpicked to study toward degrees at a prestigious international university.

In 2016, these scholars took part in a rigorous process to be chosen to study at the Breda University of Applied Sciences campus.

They underwent testing and attended interviews. Now, four years later, these students reaped the rewards of their hard work. On 16 July, the scholars graduated in a drive-through graduation ceremony at the Netherlands university.
