"We gave him [Shezi] R100 000 out of 2018 and afterward in 2019 he let us know that the cash had developed, and it was R200 000. We then, at that point, had a discussion that in the event that I surrendered and contributed my annuity payout, I would get more cash-flow," he said. 

Following 38 years at work, the man expressed he resigned and utilized his annuity to put resources into Shezi's organization.
