Earlier, it was reported that Treasure Thabede shared his story of starting his own restaurant selling food under the trees in his home town of Mkhondo in Mpumalanga. Seven years ago, Treasure started this endeavour.

In less than three months, Treasure will be relaunching his restaurant with a lounge. He says more than 30 unemployed people will now be employed by him. He named accountants, chefs and administrators as a few of those who will be employed.

Treasure's inspiring and powerful post got many people talking. He shared it to the #ImStaying group on Facebook.
