Read Faizal's full post below:
"#Lusikiski today you broke my heart... I leave behind a kind, generous soul who will assist you during her ComServe year. I'm hoping time flies.
"But over the last four days, I've travelled your Umzimbuvu pass between PSJ and Lusikiski a massive 6 times, avoiding your stationary livestock, potholes and vehicles of authority along the way. I've stood motionless all four mornings in total awe of your great Umzimbuvu River sliding under the Pondoland Bridge...
"We visited your mighty #Magwa falls... Bouncing through the gravel roads coming face-to-face with your horned bulls many times... But more than that is your evergreen rolling hills and forests littered with homes of our fellow humans who endure so much more with so much less... #ImStaying because #YoureStaying. #Lusikisiki please take care of my loved one."
Below are some of the sweet messages left for Faizal and his family:
