Taking to Twitter, @mm_clement shared a post about a family of eight who stay in a run down house that should barely be considered fit for human or even animal occupation. According to the poster, all eight occupents are also unemployed.

In brighter news, the road to success is not always an easy one especially for many South Africans who live in the direst circumstances. A young man recently helped other people from poor backgrounds see that where there is a will to succeed there is definitely a way to succeed.

Taking to Facebook Maake Shadrack shared an inspirational post about how he had slept on the floor as a student working hard to obtain a qualification that would catapult him from his poor circumstances to a better life.

"*2 years of sleeping on the floor at 25 Mathivha Street, Mankweng Zone 1, and one year of being a squatter on-campus taught me to never give up in life and continue enduring even when there's no sign of change. "However, even if you pray day and night if you don't work smart and diligently...You will never move to the next layer."
