- A homeless man was pictured hanging his laundry in front of parliament
- The incident happened in Cape Town, South Africa
- He said it's the quickest place to get his clothes dry
A homeless man in Cape Town, South Africa was pictured recently hanging his laundry in front of the country's parliament to dry.
The man, who identified himself as "40-year-old William Noor," was seen using the railings along parliament's Roeland Street for the unusual purpose.
Speaking to a local reporter, William said: “I’m doing my washing and also my wife’s washing and because our clothes never get dry, I hung it on the poles because the sunlight is drying it fast here.”
He added that it is the safest place in Cape Town due to the security around parliament.
His laundry included blankets, pajamas, T-shirts and several pairs of trousers. It's currently the winter season in South Africa, which means days are much shorter than nights.
William said although life on the streets is difficult, they have to do what it takes to survive. He said it's easier for him because he does not have children.
William and his wife are not the only ones living on the streets near parliament. However, they are frequently chased away by police.
