BI Phakathi has built his reputation as a Good Samaritan and he has done it again. The faceless philanthropist saved a homeless lady who was selling pens in Durban.
The generous man approached the woman with the aim of buying two pens but interrogated her as to why she was selling and how much she makes out of them.
Phakathi later surprised the woman when he asked about her future plans. He gave the lovely woman and her partner R3 000 to change their lives for the better. BI took to Facebook to share this beautiful story and it has naturally attracted the interest of many social media users.
