It’s tough times for everyone and that’s the reality too for businessman Lekau Sehoana, who decided to go on social media to share his struggles when it comes to filling his tank with petrol. Many can relate to his story.
@LekauSehoana is the founder of a sneakers company known as Drip Footwear. He posted two images of his car’s dashboard, which display an empty tank.
He seems to be driving one of the top performers when it comes to machines on the road, but the petrol gauge portrays a different story.
Briefly News went straight to the comments section where many of his followers dropped mixed reactions to the speedometer display beneath it, showing the car is left with zero kilometres to drive as per his tank.
“Your insurance should have the fuel assist facility, which means you qualify for refuel if you have the Assist Product in place.”
“The last time I did this, my petrol pump got damaged. It cost R22k to repair. It’s not worth it.”
“Lol, I try by all means as soon as the light turns on to find the nearest petrol station.”
“Once it stops telling you how many kilometres left you must know you are now on your own.”
“Hard luck bro, you'll mess your petrol pump, never have your petrol below the quarter tank on that thing.”
“But never tell the police you stuck on the highway way because of fuel.”
“I'll fill you up in exchange for some sneakers.”
“A day in the life of an entrepreneur, upward and onward!”
Briefly News reported that Sehoana, the founder of Drip Footwear, wanted to change his family's fortunes as he grew up in a dire state.
Having struggled in a family that was supported by a single mother of a family of four, Sehoana says the call to come to school dressed in home clothes was a life-changing moment for him.
Coming from an underprivileged background where he had no clothes or shoes led the businessman to read inspirational books about the likes of Herman Mashaba and Richard Maponya, among others.
