A South African man is being praised for his ingenuity after starting a coffee stand. A picture of the man and his set-up was uploaded to Facebook group #ImStaying and has since gone viral. The post has over 9 000 reactions, almost 200 shares and over 140 comments.
Mzansi is absolutely impressed by this local's ability to make something out of nothing. The set up is a normal foldable white table with various types of coffee, and some treats can be seen on the right.
The post was uploaded by Facebook user Lorenzo Scheepers with the caption:
"WE CAN'T CHANGE OUR SITUATION WITH ONLY IDEAS IN OUR MINDS, WE NEED FAITH (A DEEP CONVICTION IN OUR HEARTS)."
As can be expected by Facebook group #ImStaying members, the post was met with an influx of positivity and pride. Here's what some Stayers had to say to the young man:
Dinah Mashele wrote:
"That's the spirit my brother, the main goal is to do it not to think it."
Phil Golson commented:
"I'd love to buy from this brother. And I don't even drink coffee."
Misha Gené Pool added:
"I would love to shake his hand. I salute you my brother."
In other social media news making headlines, Briefly.co.za recently reported on a mother-daughter duo who left a lot of Saffas asking questions after they posted a dance video to social media.
One young lady, who was only identified by her Twitter handle @Phennymabala, shared a sweet video of herself dancing with her mom. @Phennymabala posted the clip on her Twitter page.
The video gathered over half a million views and although South Africans were left impressed by their dance moves, they were confused as well. Social media users found it nearly impossible to distinguish between the two women.
