The hero who saved a stranded woman and her daughter along the N1 highway recently is set to get a R20,000 Christmas bonus.

As Briefly.co.za reported, Kat Stott's car broke down on the busy highway, nearly causing multiple accidents.

As she waited for her insurance company to send help, Godfrey Makhubela used his e-Toll tow truck to get her car to a much safer spot on the side of the highway.
