Cape Town - Local motorists know beggars at traffic lights all too well, and have unfortunately become conditioned to the many pleas and melancholic sagas written on brown paper boxes.
An entrepreneur frequenting the corners of Empire Road and Owl Street in Johannesburg, however, is changing the begging scene from a hopeless saga into a more entrepreneurial sphere - and he's setting the benchmark really high for people who stand and ask for money at traffic lights all over SA.
A young man, only known as the 'Traffic Light Teacher', teaches motorists Zulu words while they wait at the traffic lights, charging them R1 a word!
If you have any information about him, we would love to hear from you about Joburg's #trafficlightteacher
What do you think? Is this South Africa's most original entrepreneur?
