“God bless you and your family with lots of love from my family.”
Briefly News got into contact with Zina to find out a little more about who Janie is and how she came about helping her. Turns out, Janie is a total stranger with a big heart.
"I don't know much about Janie, we met on Facebook on a post in group called #imstaying someone asked about what one needs in 2022 and I commented about being in need of my son's school shoes and Janie immediately inboxed me asking about the size of the shoe and I gave her my numbers and address and she sent the shoes to me with a school bottle and I also got a bottle too."
Zina said Janie is a very private person who did this out of the goodness of her heart and wanted absolutely no credit for it.
Janie responds to Zina’s post of gratitude
Janie Loots – Smit said:
“You shouldn't have
“Through God's grace I was in a position to help you and by helping you I received His blessings.
“I'm so happy you received the gift. The blue bottle is a gift to you Zina Kaba Manentsa for being a great mommy. ❤️”

Odd looking school shoes has Mzansi wondering where their Hogwarts letters are
In other school shoe-related news, Briefly News reported that school shoes are not the most flattering of shoes, to begin with… but they apparently do get worse. One social media user was tripping when they saw a rather oddly shaped pair of Toughees.
A social media user who goes by the handle @thepxshmagazine could not believe his eyes. This high ankle, pointy school shoe gave him straight Hogwarts vibes… he could think of nothing else!
“Are kids going to Hogwarts?”
