Eskom’s load shedding gets a street beggar busy. This is after a street dweller was spotted in Berea, Durban on Thursday heavily on duty, being a traffic points-man. He was directing the traffic effortlessly, making sure road users don’t get caught up in a traffic jam. Social media users were divided in their opinions ragarding the video of the street beggar directing traffic on such a busy road. Some people are happy, saying he’s doing a great job and risking his life. While others are saying ‘what if he is high on nyaope? He could cause an accident.’ Charles Gomede said this guy should actually be hired as a points-man.“He’s risking his life for people he does not even know. They don’t even give him money and he’s not even asking for any. Give the guy some credit,” said Charles.Meanwhile, others think this is deadly and that this ‘hustlepreneur’ should be punished.Dineo Mokoena said she’s strongly against this.“If you have an accident while being directed by a vendor/beggar will insurance pay? I don’t think so. The onus is on the motorist to know and obey the rules of the road,” she said.But all in all, seems like the self appointed points-man is winning the hearts of social media users.
