‘It’s because of this bicycle that I am able to make money, so if you are going to give me some, I want it. I am a Mosotho and I hustle with this wagon. There are no jobs, so I have made this my job. I take tourists’ luggage in it and it helps me to make a living. People come and ask me to carry their cargo to certain destinations and then give me money. Anything that a car carries, I can carry with this. I can carry a cement bag. I can carry a bed ... from Lesotho to South Africa. When I work hard, of course I sweat a lot. It’s not an easy thing to do.’
