Sometimes people go the extra mile to do something, even when it is not expected of them. Bennedict Mokgaudi, a security guard of the City of Tshwane, is one of those people.
Mokgaudi was recently hailed a hero on social media after he protected a car, which had an open window.
The story was shared IDestiny's Facebook page under the caption "Positive Racial Testimonies in SA".
According to the owner of the vehicle, he got out at the Munitoria Building on 5 September, but he accidentally forgot to close the passenger window of the bakkie.
However, when he returned after six hours, he found Mokgaudi sitting next to the car.
"In the bakkie was my ID book and passport, laptop, car registration papers, wallet with cash and bank-cards. Just where I left it," the motorist said.
He added, "Bennedict said that he was already off-shift, but he could not leave my bakkie and belongings unprotected, so he waited for me to return."
The motorist went on to call Mokgaudi "more honest than some of his employers", adding he should be promoted to Chief of the Metro Police.
"Thanks Bennedict. They should make you Chief of the Metro Police," the grateful man ended his post.
