Somizi donates wheelchair to a fan in need
Media personality Somizi Mhlongo-Motaung has revealed that he has bought a wheelchair for a fan in need.
It all began last year after a tweep from a now private account requested help from Somgaga to procure a wheelchair for them.
“Hi ... get details of how much the wheelchair is and where it can be bought then we take it from there,” said Somizi.

However, the wheelchair was never collected by the user.
Fast forward a few months, Somizi decided to help another fan out with a wheelchair. Coming across the post, the star reached out to the fan saying that he can help out in the best way possible.
“There's a wheelchair I bought for someone here on Twitter which was never collected at Dis-Chem ... I'm sure that can get into good use ... tell me what area and if there's a Dis-Chem and I'll advice accordingly,” said Somizi.
