Nine-year-old math whizz Sibahle Zwane says the correct answer to a difficult multiplication sum just comes to him.
Speaking to Azania Mosaka, his mother Mbali Zwane says she also tried to figure out how he does it and she doesn't know.
Sibahle was filmed by Constable Roger Pillay answering complex multiplication questions, and the video went viral.
I was patrolling the area and he came up to me and asked if I know mathematics, and I said no. He said I should test him and I asked if I can record him, he agreed.— Constable Roger Pillay
Sibahle says he loves numbers and wants to be a pilot when he grows up.
I want to be a pilot.— Sibahle Zwane
The mother says they realised he was gifted when he was in Grade 2.
The teacher is the one who recognised it. I don't even help him with his math homework.— Mbali Zwane, Sibahle's mother
