A local father who goes by Nyiko MrDynamix on Facebook recently took on an insane cycling challenge. Nyiko is cycling from the Beitbridge, Zimbabwe all the way to Cape Town to raise awareness on the rights fathers have in their children's lives.
He recently reached Durban and a friend of his by the name of Martha Shingange shared images of him to the #ImStaying group. Martha added that Nyiko also did his annual walk from Polokwane to Tzaneen.
She asked Facebook users and Stayers to cheer him on if they happened to meet or pass him on the road.
Martha's full post read:
"Today this superhero dad and friend of mine reached Durban as he cycles from Beitbridge to Cape Town to raise awareness on the rights of fathers in their children’s lives.
"Sometimes heroes don’t wear capes but they cycle and climb mountains. This year he did his annual walk from Polokwane to Tzaneen. Please cheer him on if you happen to meet or past him on the road. For him, #ImStaying."
