Mzansi impressed by a 13-year-old boy who is a mechanic trained by his father (renowned mechanic)
This picture of Sphelele standing next to a car was shared online and it left many social media users in disbelief as this is something which they don't see regularly. Most of them were shocked that this 13-year-old boy is more than capable of fixing a car.
Skill transfer is what is lacking in the black community and it's mostly taken for granted/undermined while when it's well nature with willingness by the receipiant is a firm foundation of am entrepreneurnel skill that no individual can take it away from the heir.
According to some social media users the boy has high quality experience and a bright future. They say he only needs education to spice up his talent. Parents should never waste his time with irrelevant subjects. They should just take him where he belongs. Giving kids quality education doesn't necessarily means you have to spend lot of money, but just let the kid do what he gat passion about.
Even though Mechanical engineering is considered to be one of the most challenging undergraduate degrees on offer, this 13-year-old boy is able and more than capable of fixing a car without any of those qualifications. Generally, in the professional field this boy is required to have a qualification in maths and/or physics. These are the subject he's required to study before considering himself a qualified mechanic.
On the Job training is way better than book knowledge. Compare he's father that is well renowned in that area with a mechanic that studied and you will see the difference. Those old mechanics can listen to a vehicles engine through a spanner and diagnose the problem. Secondly getting an apprentice job to work for someone else instead of teaming up with his father and expand their family business.
In my own opinion this boy is better than those who spending many years at the universities and after graduating they find themselves on the street without a job and end up being drug addicts.
