South Africans can take nothing and turn it into something useful and several local boys proved it. A video was posted on Twitter yesterday showing a group of kids having fun on scooters.
According to Twitter user @ThaboT_style, who posted the video online, the children built the transport devices themselves. The innovative youngsters, who live in an informal settlement, used recycled materials to build the scooters, Briefly.co.za learned.
@ThaboT_style captioned the post:
"Don't sleep on kasi kids, the creativity they possess is beyond. These kids from my hood made their own scooters from just using wood and wheels."
Take a look at the video below:
South Africans were inspired by the footage and they applauded the children's creativity in the comment section.
