- Many South African hearts have been broken after a post about the dire circumstance that one local family was living in was shared online
- The post features snaps of their broken down house in which apparently 8 unemployed people live
- Many South Africans called on the ANC to act but others seemed to have no hope that the ANC would help
It's been many years since South Africa managed to free itself from the grip of inequality, after the apartheid war was won, many people envisioned a country of many opportunities for growth but unfortuantely a post about the poor circumstances under which one South African family live under, prove that the nation is far from being equal.
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.
"As Bantu http://organisation.SA which is an NPO based in the North of KwaZulu-Natal , KwaDukuza. We have located a Youth lead household consisting of 8 members whom all are unemployed only surviving through social grant and assistance from close relatives and friends.
"We have seen the need to call in any individual , Relevant Government sector and Entities to come on board and make any form of donation to assist in Building this family a proper house . Kindly contact us on 0812143635/ 071 146 7460," he captioned the post.
Soon locals were sharing their thoughts:
"Over 25 years of Freedom ,Our people not all but majority don't have RDP houses #ANC will campaign and make empty promises just because they bluff people with Food parcels ."
"Contact the ANC, they should look into the matter. And they should assist even the one's near this house."
"Don't worry ANC will be bringing t-shirts for them."
In brighter Briefly.co.za 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."
