A Johannesburg home's security alarm went off and the responding security officer expected to face criminals. He became the hero of a young girl for a completely different reason. Stanley rescued a young girl who was fighting through her Zulu homework.
Only in South Africa will a security officer respond to an alarm activation and end up helping a child with their Zulu homework.
Who said there's no hope for a peaceful and loving future for South Africa? People like Stanley prove that there is still a lot of good in this beautiful country.
Mandy Walmsley Spence shared the lovely story on Facebook and explained how Stanley responded to their alarm's activation but ended up helping her daughter with her homework.
After he did his initial check of their property, Stanley overheard that Mandy's daughter was struggling with her Zulu homework and offered to help.
So my alarm goes off tonight and Stanley from ADT arrives to check the garden. Once he determines that no murderers or robbers are lurking in the shrubbery he proceeds to assist my daughter with Zulu homework. Huge points to Stanley and ADT! Best customer service ever.”
South Africans were inspired by Stanley and quickly voiced their admiration on social media:
Dave Mason - Brilliant! Siyabonga kakhulu, Stanley!
Karessa Burghartswieser - Give this man a bells… Thank you Stanley for restoring some faith in humanity – this really touched my heart. Well done and keep up the great work!!!
Natalie Jade Smith - Stanley!! What a legend… a great guy with a smile that could disarm the coldest heart. And a true hero in his own right – he’s done more than his fair share of sacrificing for the community.
Cyllo Mutloane - Now this is the SA that was promised to us all and not the nonsense we have being dealing with of crime, hate and false news. Well done Zulu teacher/ADT- security.
