On 9 February, Mpho confirmed that he is now R16k away from the R50k goal.

Briefly.co.za compiled a few of the tweets under #SaveMphosBusiness:
"The way South Africans are coming together for #SaveMphosBusiness is truly inspiring. Bless you beautiful people."
"This is amazing! God shall bless and multiply whatever amount each of you has offered, 7 times 70 times. And also those that could not offer but sent out their heartfelt messages. Shalom #SaveMphosBusiness"
#'SaveMphosBusiness got me in my feelings. Love it when black people come together like this for good. Love this. I live to see this."
Take a look at Mpho's response to all the love he's received below:
Previously, Briefly.co.za reported that Mzansi had rallied together to help Mpho. Mpho Moteka suffered a great set-back after he lost R50 000 worth of broilers (a chicken breed) to heavy rainfall. The young farmer felt extremely demotivated after losing such a large number of his stock.
He shared a post on Twitter of his loss with the caption reading 'I quit'. Mpho's defeat didn't go unnoticed as SAns decided to come together to help him. #SaveMphosBusiness was created where parody account Jan Van Potgieter asked peeps to help Mpho out.
He shared an image of Mpho's banking details alongside the post about Mpho giving up. Jan Van Potgieter asked tweeps for donations of at least R10 to help save Mpho's business.
