CAPE TOWN - While lockdown has had a crippling impact on many businesses, for a group of teenagers in Langa it's led to financial relief.
Langa local Colin Mkosi started Cloudy Deliveries in February.
The company provides a delivery service for residents in the township, collecting groceries or takeaways on their bicycles and dropping it off at customers' homes for a small fee.
Initially, the service was aimed at helping elderly residents in Langa.
When lockdown was implemented, Cloudy Deliveries became a hit with even more locals.
The business started out with seven second-hand bicycles, which frequently broke down.
With the help of local government and NGOs, it has grown to a company with 21 bicycles.
Mkosi says one of his goals is to tackle youth unemployment.
