Before tablets and cellphones became the most important thing to both the young and the old, indigenous games kept people entertained for hours. A young group of SA youths has reminded many just how fun it was after sharing a clip of themselves enjoying some of the old favourites.
Taking to Twitter, @uPeace_ shared clips of himself and a large group of friends recreating some of their fondest childhood memories playing the indigenous games that were very popular among South African kids.
"We decide to leave our homes and take it back to the streets. Me and my friends had some fun with some of the indigenous games we grew up playing," he wrote in the heartwarming Twitter thread.
Meanwhile Twitter folk loved being reminded of simpler South African times. Many of them headed to the comment section to share their thoughts. Read a few of them below.
"Shuuu, watching these videos took me back hey,this was the reason my mom would ask “shoe or belt” for arriving late in the house."
"It saddens me that my son won't know this communal happiness. Boys and girls playing together at games crafted for oneness of society. Phones and Playstations have taken away so much of our kids that they don't even know how to socialise meaningfully."
