An incredibly inspirational post about South Africans helping each other is teaching South Africans a very important lesson.


Ilze Brand was on her way to movies, when she stopped to help a woman whose car had broken down. She took to Facebook to remind all South Africans that we are stronger united than divided!

On the way to movies tonight a lady’s car was stuck in the middle of the road. I stopped to help her, then another guy stopped, then another and then another. I directed the traffic, one guy brought a triangle, another popped the hood, and another checked the battery.

South Africa take note!

This is the face of our country! Its not found in the antics of parliament, in the sleezy attacks on social media, or on the airways of sleeze media.

It is found in the faces of ordinary citizens who care enough to lay aside the past and present a new present! One where each brings his contribution for the greater good. One challenge, one trial, one step at a time…

It is time to stop this nonsense. We will never build this country back up if we are tearing it down simultaneously. A nation divided against itself will not stand.

This is a new culture, a new creed, and its collective NOT comparative!

Leave your hatred and hostility – or else please leave the country.

We need builders, not breakers!

– Ilze Brand… proud South African!
