Siyabulela Magobiyane is a homeless man. Yet this hasn't stopped him from choosing to keep beaches on the Atlantic Seaboard in pristine condition.
Magobiyane became an online sensation after entrepreneur Jay Margolis spotted him cleaning the shores of Bantry Bay and posted the story on Facebook.
He just said that the rubbish was an embarrassment and that he wanted it to look nice for the tourists that come to visit South Africa. I was pretty overwhelmed.— Jay Margolis, entrepreneur
He just told me that he does it because he loves the sea.— Jay Margolis, entrepreneur
Margolis published the story on Monday afternoon and the post has since received over 22 000 likes and 30 000 shares.
He hopes that the exposure Magobiyane has received will lead to a work opportunity that would change his life.
