Karen Williams took to Facebook to share her amazing experience that restored her faith in our beautiful country and its people.
She revealed that she and her friends were at a funeral and her friend Jacky Daniels realised that she had left her phone at a petrol station.
Fearing the worst, Karen dialled the phone not expecting anyone to answer but to her surprise, a voice came through the speaker.
A gentleman and employee of Kranskop Engen, Thabo Puleng Mathye, had found the phone and answered it when it rang in the hopes that he could return it to its rightful owner.
Here is Karen's story in her own words:
"We experienced our own #ImStaying moment
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.
A big THANK YOU to you, Thabo, for your honesty and keeping the phone safe May you be blessed."
