Njabulo Shezi BabakaPhiwe has a diploma in maritime and logistics and unfortunately did not get a position in his desired field. Instead of doing nothing, he keeps himself busy by cleaning the area he lives in.
The young man shared an image of himself doing hard labour on the roadside where he lives to the #ImStaying group recently. According to Njabulo, he cleans up the area, ensuring it's 'on point', and doesn't expect any sort of reimbursement.
His lovely post received over 4 500 reactions and over 200 comments from Stayers who are commending him for his good deed.
Njabulo captioned his post:
"As #ImStaying and not working with my Diploma in Maritime and Logistics, I keep my area on point. Not expecting any payment."
Many Stayers felt inspired by his encouraging deed and shared so in the comments section.

In other news about inspiring South Africans, Briefly.co.za recently reported on a man who shared the tender moment he helped a vagrant. Phinius Sebatsane took to his Facebook to share an amazing interaction with a homeless man he calls "Uncle Calvin".
According to Phinius, Calvin had been smeared with paint by some terrible people on Guy Fawkes, 5 November. Calvin's hair and beard were covered in crusty paint and he was begging for money for a haircut. Phinius offered to cut Calvin's hair and he agreed.
After the haircut, he handed a mirror to Calvin so he could have a good look at himself. He looked very sad and Phinius asked why, to which he responded:
"I haven't looked at myself like this in 20 years."
