"As a father, and having the means, however small, you can't be only inwardly focused. [You] must have a good grasp of the outside environment," he is reported to have said.

Modiba is a member of the Wits chapter of the Golden Key Society, a prestigious organisation of the top 15% of academic performers in each discipline.

According to a response on Twitter, it is not the first time "the good doctor" has helped someone out.
