Mathibeli said he was moved by Ngobese’s story because they shared similar backgrounds.
“I was also raised by my grandmother in a big family but our resilience has made us who we are. I want to ensure Ngobese is able to earn a living so he can contribute to his family. All I need from him is to respect the job.”
His group of companies has interests in agriculture and minerals and has 12 subsidiaries with offices in seven provinces and a presence in Namibia and Lesotho.
“I had other vacancies but I thought let me create one for Dumisani. He will start work on Monday. It will be a good position and a permanent one. He said he is studying online and we will pay for his studies”.
Ngobese told TimesLIVE he was overwhelmed with the response to his photographs, which went viral.
“I never expected this. I am shocked at how many people have been showing me love.”
