Maduka Molefe is one man who has restored Mzansi's faith in humanity. Recently, Molefe had a much deserved day off, however, instead of spending the day chilling at home, he helped out a woman in need.
Molefe said his mom reminded him of an elderly lady who lived in a deteriorating RDP house. He and his mother went to visit the gogo and her living conditions touched his heart.
So, he decided to go to a hardware store to buy materials using his own money and called on two friends, both of whom were willing to help him out for free.
The three men fixed the granny's house and Molefe wrote about the experience on his Facebook page.
The post read:
"Today was suppose to be my day off and my mother reminded me about this other gogo's RDP house and how bad it was and she don't have money to fix since the is no one working in her family so I went with my mum there.
"After seeing the house I couldn't help myself, I called Dash and Rhruu to help for free and I went to the hardware store with my own money to buy material and we did it for free.
"The gogo, she is happy. Soon I will do the ceiling for them."
Take a look at his post below:
South Africans applauded Molefe and the two other men who helped him and the story was even posted on the #ImStaying Facebook page.

Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported on another inspiring story. One lady, Zamanzini Philisiwe Zungu, is proving that women can succeed in industries dominated by men. Zungu is an engineer who decided to expand her house's structure.
Instead of hiring a builder, the inspiring lady took on the physical work herself. She shared photos of her handiwork on Facebook and captioned the post:
"This is what I am good at."
Another woman, Nompilo Majozi, then decided to share Zungu's story on the #ImStaying Facebook page.
She wrote: "If this doesn't inspire you, then I don't know what will. Sis studied civil engineering at FET, now look what she's doing in her home. Her name is Zamanzini Philisiwe Zungu...I'm so proud to be a woman!"
