castle of good hope

A different view to South Africa… and maybe the best thing you see today!


Cape Town, South Africa – A Capetonian who quit his job at 43 to pursue his dream of starting his own business, created a Facebook page so people could follow his journey and one of his most recent videos called “South Africa is in trouble” is going viral for showing a different side to our country!

Morne Strydom might have left his job on the 31 January this year to start his own company, but the newfound freedom has not only allowed him to be an entrepreneur; it has also given him the space to create really good content!

Strydom has been uploading stories and video about his new chapter and his most recent video called “South Africa is in trouble…” has started trending for all the right reasons.

The passionate South African was at the Cape Town Castle when he saw hope and decided to record the moment and share it with the world.

“It’s not that hard to change the world, to leave a better one for our kids. Just be lekker man. Just be cool. Just be a human to other human beings. Find some music, find some good people and start a revolution. That’s it. Done,” – Morne Strydom
