My partner had sadly lost his Father. Friends of ours Augustine Daniels and his wife Jacky Daniels had come to support us, attending the funeral. They had stopped at the Kranskop Engen Garage on the N1(Limpopo). Unfortunately Jacky had lost her phone at the garage, realizing too late. After the funeral, they had called the phone and it was answered! A gentleman, Thabo Puleng Mathye had answered the phone. He's an employee at the Kranskop Engen.
My partner, Desmond Maserumule and I were able to contact him and travel to the garage from Modimolle this morning, meet up with Thabo and collect the phone.
