Ndapunikwa Kamu-sekela, an officer travelling between Ohk and Windhoek on New Year’s Day found fellow traveler Clinton Alexander’s suitcase which had fallen off the rack roof of the bakkie he was travelling in.
Kamu-sekela used Alexander’s ID document which had been left in his suitcase to track Alexander down and return his belongings. Even though the officer was off-duty, he took the effort to help Alexander and ensure that the bag was returned, with no expectation of a reward.
Having begun 2019 on a positive note, Alexander took to Facebook to thank Kamu-sekela for his good deed and to share the positive energy.
Alexander’s Facebook post was shared more than 300 times as people on both sides of the border were touched by his actions.
The news about Kamu-sekela’s selflessness brought joy to the hearts of thousands as it served as a much-needed reminder that there is good in the world and that goodness transcends borders and differences.
Facebook user Klemens Awarab wrote, “He is an ambassador of selflessness. May God bless you abundantly my brother,” while Marillie van der Walt noted, “That is going above and beyond the call of duty.”
Alexander’s post was shared by Hennie Miller to the Facebook group Positive Relationships in SA. The group is dedicated to showing the world that Africa is about more than just racism and conflict, and that there are more positive and good things happening that people need to talk about.
“Why only negative stories about Racism and conflict. Let us counter that with thousands of positive racial relationships and GOOD stories of People helping people,” is noted in the group’s description.
