Ma-Orange was accompanied by his colleague and friend, Presley Chweneyagae, who starred in a movie Tsotsi. The two are ambassadors for Southern Africa Youth Movement (SAYM).

<p>Born Israel Matseke-Zulu and raised in the same township of Alex, GP-MaOrange says he was touched by the plight of the majority poor residents of the township he calls home, especially during this difficult time of the lockdown. “This is double-trouble for the residents here.
