A Johannesburg entrepreneur has demonstrated Ubuntu by giving free food to those who cannot afford it. The lady, who sells vetkoek, offers four per person at around lunch time in Park Station. She said that she could not sit by and watch students, the homeless and poor people starve.
Legit.ng gathers that the woman identified as CalypsoSaige on Twitter took to the micro-blogging site to advertise the free food.
"Available for free when you are really hungry and have no money. We don't deliver. Collect at the shop."
She went on to say that Johannesburg is the worst place to struggle.
"We've seen students, victims of crime, homeless people, even travellers, desperate people STARVING"
She refused to accept donations for her service and said she was more comfortable doing it with her own money. Social media users were touched by her kindness.
