Sometimes the smallest things are the biggest things! Thank you Suprise, for doing something so selfless and inspiring us all in the process.

 

Bloemfontein, South Africa (08 March 2021) – A South African is being celebrated on social media for spending his days cleaning the streets… and apparently, he does it all by himself, and wants nothing for doing it!

He is just a guy who wants to keep his community clean! And wants nothing for it in the process.

A Twitter account with over 1,2 million followers called AdvoBarryRoux (not associated with the actual Advocate Barry Roux) posted about the man who is only known as Suprise.

“This guy named Suprise decided to start cleaning the messy street of Phahameng Bloemfontein and sweeping up piles of garbage from morning until almost noon all by himself and not hired by anyone while others laugh at him and call him names for his good deed.”

And social media has lit up with good words for Suprise!

“These are our South African heroes.” – Prince Akeem

“Props to him; he’s a man for that… I wish more people could look upon his deed and try to do something productive for their communities as well rather than plunging themselves into drugs and mugging people…Too bad people had to be laughing at him instead of lending a hand.” – Phineas

“Great initiative by this man. If only we could learn from this. It’s sad to see that apparently cleaning is laughable. Imagine.” – Phiranha

“Not all heroes wear capes.” – Sandile

Sometimes the smallest things are the biggest things! Thank you Suprise, for doing something so selfless and inspiring us all in the process.
