There's nothing scarier and more frustrating than being stranded on the side of the road and not one person stops to help. But, for Neville Mancho, his two heroes came in the form of two old 'ooms'.
On the Facebook group, Positive Racial Testimonies in SA, Hennie Muller posted that Mancuo used a friend's bakkie when tragedy struck.
"On my way to Bethlehem from Potch I got a puncture and I was driving a friend’s bakkie taking some stuff home. I was so excited to go home that I even forgot to check if the car had everything, only to find the car doesn’t have a car jack and a wheel spanner. Frustration showed up without an invitation."
Manchu then stood on the roadside asking for help, but by the first hour, not one person stopped to offer assistance.
"Just when I was about to give up, 2 old men stopped by."
He said not only did they offer the use of their tools, but helped him remove the blown out tyre.
"The other oom even had to lie down on his back to jack the car."
"My frustration got even worse when we discovered that we can’t take out the spare wheel underneath the car You wanna know what happened?"
Manchu's heroes then went to the nearest town, Parys, to buy a secondhand tyre.
"They got me a tyre and didn’t ask for a penny from me. I was astonished, I was in awe of who God is.
"We prayed, 'With a love unbroken, bind our hearts together, here on earth let Your will be done'. Our land is healed."
People on Facebook praised the kindness these men showed Manchu:
Makhosazane Connie Mnisi commented: "This story made me teary, what an awesome testimony."
Nthabiseng Sebiloane wrote: "My beautiful Country. God hears and answers prayers...."
Louise Schaap wrote: "This is my South Africa! Kindness does not see colour!"
