A white South African man became an instant online sensation yesterday after pictures of him in briefs at a Malawi airport hit the interwebs. The man arrived at the Kamuzu International Airport with nothing but his briefs and two travel bags ready to board the next flight. Security at the airport did not allow him past the security check since they thought he was bonkers .The matter was worsened by a Malawian news outlet which alleged the man in briefs had taken a lot of Malawian hemp which hindered his judgment.
Stones were thrown, Memes were created and a merciless troll he received, but it later emerged that the man was not mad or high on Malawian hemp as alleged earlier .Apparently, the man was creating awareness and raising money for children by flying in nothing but his speedo swimwear. The man, identified as Greig Bannatyne was rescued from the trolls by Madswimmers, a charity organization which said Greig had taken the swimming challenge a notch higher, all for charity.
‘’One of our Lake Malawi swimmers- Greig Bannatyne -raised an additional R30000 for the cause by travelling home to SA in his speedo! There were a few official issues along the way, but Greig, you’re our true hero.’’ Madswimmers wrote on their website.
