Nigerians are good people who usually rally round their own in times of difficulty, and this reality played out with a lady identified as Lateefah Ahmed-Ibrahim.
The lady with the Twitter handle @ahmed_lateefah took to Twitter to seek help after being told that her husband needed R682 900 for a kidney transplant.
Under 12 hours of crying out on the media platform, Nigerians raised over R106 000 for the woman so as to save her husband's life.
Donations were made into Lateefah's ailing husband's account. Funds were also sent into a GoFundMe account that was opened to save Ahmed Ibrahim.
According to the woman, a total of R204 000 has been donated into her husband's account.
A quick check into the GoFundMe account, Briefly.co.za realised that Good Samaritans have donated $2,085 towards the cause.
In other news, a pretty Nigerian lady with the Twitter handle, @nuel_ah, has gone online to say that she is ready to settle down.
What, however, seems different about her search was that she specifically mentioned the countries she wants suitors from, snubbing Nigerian men. In a post on the platform on Thursday, October 22, Nuel said she wants men from the UK, Germany, Canada, and Russia to proposition her.
Meanwhile, home affairs officials who allegedly issued Prophet Bushiri and his wife Mary with permanent residence have been suspended. Bushiri and Mary are not South African citizens, they are citizens of Malawi.
The couple were issued with notices that their application for permanent residence was incorrectly granted.
Home Affairs minister Aaron Motsoaledi told ENCA that the officials had not been suspended for incorrectly granting the permanent residence but for other reasons. However, their role in the issuance of the permanent residence to the couple is being probed.
