Residents repair road with own moola, Mzansi praises their efforts
In another story about infrastructure, Briefly News wrote about a group of residents who took it upon themselves to repair a shoddy road in Mzansi and pics of their hard work have gone viral on Twitter.
Entrepreneur Dr Daniel Marven took to Twitter to post before-and-after snaps of the work that community members did on the road.
The snaps show residents taking back their power and fixing their surroundings with their own resources.
@danielmarven captioned the two photographs:
“The better communities do their own roads that won't have potholes.”
