SA's Youngest Millionaire Under Seige

21 July 2016, 11:33

The young gentleman, Sandile Shezi, SA's youngest self-made millionaire seems under attack by seemingly unpatriotic media personalities.

I was born in the same location as Shezi and I did my schooling and worked in Durban and surroundings. Anyone who has lived in our lovely city will agree it has its imperfections. Most of the youth are soaked in every sort of drug and can't find their way out, however much parents' endeavor to assist. It has been long established that more than 60% of black pupils don't actually pass Grade 12. Most of these kids' plans and aspirations end up down the drain because of a number of variables (I won't get into for now).

Conveniently, I can't recall SA media throwing its, undeniably, heavy weight behind uprooting known local drug 'laboratories'. As long as the story doesn't rake in profit, the media turns its back. Let one of those kids (Sandile Shezi) rise from such circumstances to millionaire status - without taking anybody's money at gunpoint, our astute media will halt corruption investigations against known thugs and leave no casualties on an onslaught of a budding star that would give a glimpse of hope to fellow youths. 

Admittedly, someone may argue differently, but the gist remains the same that a young budding entrepreneur who only needs guidance is not getting his fair share of patriotism. Mr Shezi is a young South African who, above all else, needs you and me for guidance.

It is extremely easy, taking a mere split-second to share a video, but pre-sharing it, it is the duty and responsibility of the sharer to ethically deem whether the to-be shared content is an infringement on the basic privacy rights of the subject within the video.  Read more...
