The “Don’t Panic” campaign by Namola has been spotted all around South Africa, even on Table Mountain! Now, Brent Lindeque shares what it means and what the Good Things Guy role is.


South Africa (04 July 2024) — Good Things Guy is all about balancing the good with the tough stuff South Africans face each day; the same can be said for Namola, the Safety App that helps South Africans feel empowered. The aim is to ensure people “Don’t Panic” by giving them the tools to combat any emergency and to live freely in this beautiful country of ours.

Good Things Guy’s very own founder, Brent Lindeque, has been named the ambassador for Namola. Namola is South Africa’s most trusted “Don’t Panic” Safety App, keeping you and others safe anytime, anywhere!

The partnership between Good Things Guy’s Brent Lindeque and Namola was so fitting, especially considering we have had the pleasure of sharing a few articles on Good Things Guy over the years, showcasing instances where the app was used to save lives. Many of these times, people used the app to save someone else, reaffirming that South Africans are all for helping others.

Like the time when Ettie woke up to the smell of smoke at around 3 am. She looked out her window and saw her neighbour’s house in flames. She pulled out her phone, opened Namola and quickly reported the fire. Soon after, she got a call from an emergency responder and help was on the way.

With the help of Ettie, Namola and the emergency services, the entire family and two dogs next door were saved from the fire. It was this incredible service that had reaffirmed Etties’ belief in South African emergency responders and made her feel proudly South African again.

This is just one of several “feel good” moments we have shared, but thanks to the app, its emergency responders and other functionalities, there are even more stories that are untold. Stories of families being reunited, stories of the bad guys being apprehended, and most of all, stories of lives being saved.

The app is a great tool to keep yourself and others safe, always having that option at one’s fingertips, is liberating. The app has an invaluable role in South Africa’s safety landscape and is purposefully curated to allow South Africans to do more things that make them happy.

Namola’s commitment to public safety and well-being is evident in its offerings. While there is a premium version called NamolaPlus, the app also has a free version that will always be available.. and always for free! This ensures that all South Africans have the opportunity to live safely and freely, regardless of their financial situation.

So go out there, do the things and Don’t Panic! Download the app here.
