A car guard from Port Elizabeth has been hailed a true hero after returning a parcel he found abandoned.
The man, who was only identified as Derrick, could easily have taken the parcel and no one would have come looking for it or thought otherwise. But, instead, Derrick did what he believed was right and returned the parcel.
Public Facebook page, Postivie Racial Testimonies in SA, posted about Derrick, adding that Joanita Claassen shared this amazing story.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Claasen said Derrick found the parcel at a Pick n Pay in Port Elizabeth. It was forgotten in a trolley.
Instead of taking the parcel, Derrick returned it to the shop it was bought at, Whitehouse.
Claassen said: "Please give him your thumbs up and support him at the William Moffet in PE shopping centre. His name is Derrick. What a nice deed."
She then went on to say if she lived in PE, she would offer Derrick a proper job.
People were quick to recognise Derrick's honesty and praised him on social media:
Sharyn Carr wrote: "Do unto others as you would have done unto you .. thank you sir. Do wish you a new year with a position you deserve."
Wiseman Nazareth Mbele commented: "We could be hearing about such positive and hope inducing stories everyday if only the media was under the control of men and women of integrity. God him. Shalom."
