Melusi Sitshaluza, a South African man, took to Facebook to inspire the platform’s users.
Melusi has been saving R500 (equivalent to KSh 3,500) every month for this year and adding it to a gift card.
He managed to save R6,000 (KSh 41,000) and helped his parents out.
Knowing that December and January are stressful for his parents, he thought he would do something special for them.
Melusi purchased groceries that, he says, will last his parents two to three months.
His post read:
“I saved R500 (KSh 3,500) for 12 months on my gift card, total is R6 000 (KSh 41,000), been doing this for the past two years. I know December and January are stressful but my parents will be less stressed because I bought them groceries that can last for two to three months.
