Man, 63, selling ice cream from van for 45 years inspires SA: “Great motivation to the younger generation”

Briefly News also reported that a 63-year-old Sipho Mtshali has been selling ice cream in Soweto for a whole 45 years. According to a Twitter post by @KasiEconomy, Mr Mtshali's music from his ice cream van is a well-known melody that has been playing from the apartheid regime times.

Mtshali stated that he fondly remembers the round baby faces of his first customers. Those kids are now adults who bring their own children to buy ice cream from his soft-serve van that has turned him into a popular name on the streets.

Briefly News was absolutely inspired by Mtshali and reshared the post about him to our Facebook page. Our readers were just as motivated by Mr Mtshali's story and shared tons of happy comments directed to him.
