VIDEO: He’s not just a beggar at the stop street, he teaches Zulu to passing motorists

Twenty-three-year old Veli Moses Mackenzie,  is a homeless man who teaches isiZulu to motorists on busy Empire road in Braamfontein, Johannesburg.

Mackenzie also known as ‘Jovies’ teaches the language to motorists using only a placard that he uses for his ‘word of the day.’ He boasts that he once taught isiZulu to a man from Wits University who used Mackenzie’s word of the day to compile a list that he eventually memorised.

This video is a production of the 2014 Wits Journalism short course in television.
