A social media user, Proph Ngobeni, shared with Facebook and Instagram users why he decided to stay in South Africa. Ngobeni revealed that the level of creativity in the country is something that inspires him. He posted photos and footage on the #ImStaying group and captioned it: “I’m staying because there is so much creativity in this country.”
The images show a man with his home-made vehicle, a bakkie made from scrap materials, second-hand tyres and other spare parts he got his hands on.
South Africans were impressed with the man’s creativity and they applauded him in the comment section.
Mandy Grieve commented: “Absolutely amazing.
Mieke Coombs wrote: “This is amazing! Hope its the first of many more. I love the wirework and the wire and tin creations that is done in SA. When our grown up children were in primary school there was a small wire work project on the curriculum. I remember thinking then – that it was much harder to do than what I thought it would be for the children and this really has potential to become ‘something’ in future. “At that stage wire figurines and little windmills etc was not sold on the roadside as it has been for sometime now and my oh my – some of these creations are done by artists – people who have a really good eye!”
Chris Maluleke added: “This is what South Africa needs at a time like this.”
