Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that on Saturday, April 4, the Irene Village Mall in Centurion, Gauteng shared an inspiring story that proved once again that South Africans can stand together in tough times.
A father, Joseph, arrived at the mall to buy baby clothes for his newborn child. However, because of the lockdown, he could not buy clothes or a blanket and broke down in tears in Pick 'n Pay.
His cries for help did not fall on deaf ears and the staff at the PnP decided to bless him. The post read: "Not only did the team come together for some essentials but they all undertook to donate baby clothing to Joseph in his time of need from their own homes."
