Man arrives Mecca after trekking from South Africa for three years


A South African man simply identified as Saheed has surprised everyone  after arriving in Islam’s holiest city, Mecca, on foot after three years, aso Naija reports.

Saheed reportedly started his journey to the holy land from Cape Town in South Africa on August 30th, 2018. He walked through Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Kenya, Sudan, Egypt, and Palestine, where the COVID-19 border lockdown forced him to pause his journey.

According to him, he stayed in Palestine for a year and eight months while waiting for the border to be opened, and when that was done, he continued his journey.

Saheed, while speaking to newsmen about his experience shortly after arriving in Saudi Arabia, said he’s in Mecca for the Hajj and after this, he would begin his journey back to his homeland, South Africa, on foot.
