A professional motorbike rider called Mohammed Lary has revealed that he was able to support his family and buy land for himself because of his taxi business.
In an interview with Briefly.co.za, Mohammed explained that he started the business only five years ago but has been able to gather enough funds to cater for his family's needs.
Mohammed Lary, who graduated from senior high school and was unable to further his education due to lack of money, said he started riding the motorbike after his car broke down, as he had worked as a driver.

In addition to this, the taxi bike business has been in the news lately as the flagbearer of the biggest opposition party, the NDC, has promised to legalise the business if he is voted back into power.
Members of the ruling NPP have, on the other hand, been bashing the NDC's presidential candidate over the issue.
In other news, a young lady in Ghana's hair got stuck in the tyres of a motorbike that was just about to take off as a video that is fast-going viral has shown.
In the footage that was sighted by Briefly.co.za on the official Instagram handle of @iamphylxgh, the incident would have ended up being uncontrollably serious if it was not spotted early.
The long braids that extended from the hair of the lady and were almost touching the floor got stuck in a manner that she could not set her head straight.
