Johannesburg and it’s dodgy beggars – Video!

Here is a video that had me amazed. It’s of a guy pretending not to have legs and begging at traffic light in Houghton, on Glenhove Road in Johannesburg. Everything seems legit, until a security officer gets him on film with healthy legs.


Although its very easy for most of us to support some these beggars and I too do so quite often, this just makes me rethink where, when and to who should I be giving charity to? While it’s easy to say that I should make donations at an organisation, sometimes the R5 that I have in my pocket is easier to give to the peson right in front of me, than me having to go through the admin of finding a charity. Anyway, watch the video of this skelm!
