Lucky Casim Ndogo is the kind of citizen that we need in these times. With many Africans too poor to splash money on protective wear, the innovative man looked for ways to help his fellow Saffas keep themselves safe during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Ndogo decided to use a two-litre Coca Cola bottle and convert it into a cheap and easily made face shield.
He created a video of himself showing off his homemade visor. Ndogo explained South Africans have brains but they don't have the money. So, he decided to get creative and use his mind to come up with the easy-to-make face shields.

YEN.com.gh asked Ndogo how he came up with the creative idea and he said:
"This idea developed the moment I saw cashiers wearing their see through face masks and I said to myself, 'but I can do this thing from plastic bottles and this would be a great idea for reducing plastic waste', and then I took a 2L plastic bottle and cut it according to the plan existing in my mind."

Meanwhile, another innovative man has inspired Saffas. The man used an old metal drum and converted it into a smart, clean, portable washbasin.
Mzansi applauded his talent and called for his invention to be implemented formally at taxi ranks.
In other news, a Ghanaian historian who appears to be at the Ancestral River Park at Assin Manso in the Central Region of Ghana has argued that "Jamaica" is an Akan term.
In a snippet of GBCNews sighted by YEN.com.gh, the gentleman explains that the term "Jamaica" may sound like a word from the land of Jamaica itself but in reality, it was a group of Akan slaves that named the place with the term.
The historian explained that the word Jamaica actually comes from "perhaps, I've remained here" in Akan, which is said in a similar word-pronunciation as "Jamaica".
