A Pietermaritzburg man, whose savings went up in flames with the torching of his fabric shop, is not giving up on his dreams.

Sanele Cele (29), of Pelham, had saved all his money for a year to open the shop, which offered fabric and a seamstress service, on Peter Kerchoff Street.

He said he would not let the devastation caused by the unrest stop him from realising his dreams. “I will rebuild. The dream carries on, it is way bigger than the setback,” said Cele.
