Some motorists in Bloemfontein will now have peace of mind after four men took it upon themselves to assist in repairing the potholes caused by heavy rains in Du Plessis Drive, Langenhoven Park this morning.

Morena Motsoari, Tshepo Pitikwe, Roy van Wyk and Nthongwa Thekiso have been standing at the bus stop in an attempt to find a piece job, but after witnessing a number of motorists’ cars getting damaged because of the potholes, they decided to help repair the potholes.

Bloemfontein Courant previously reported that a Bloemfontein resident lost a tyre of her car after hitting one of the potholes in Du Plessis Road.

Motsoari told the paper that they stand there with the hopes of finding an odd job. He added that because they have been unsuccessful in their attempt, they decided to pick up a shovel and repair the holes by filling them with sand.
“We do not take sand from the islands but right next to the pavement where there is a build-up of mud,” he said.

They all proceeded by saying that they do this for a few rand and they stand with the hopes of someone helping them out.

These four men are eager to assist in any way and plead with the residents of Langenhoven Park to approach them if they ever needed help with filling potholes or any other job.

They want to fill the potholes in the entire road, but considering how busy the road is, this might be a difficult task.

The men can be contacted on 065 606 2119 if anyone is in need of their services.
