Here's what happened, in Hennie's own words:

Rain, flat tyre, Steven, Shadrack and taxi man called 'Sous' lended a hand.

Thank you.

In the must needed rainy wet on the evening of Friday 8th Feb 19 our bakkie got a flat tyre in busy Church street. It was not a nice experience. On my own, I would not have been able to change it.

Firstly two gentlemen by the name of Stephen and Shadrack started to help. It was raining hard and the three of us were trying to lift the car, by getting the jack underneath to get it high enough.

Well while we were working in the dark , with one torch, trying to stop fast approaching cars, with no respect for hazards flashing ahead, another caring man appeared, with his taxi. His name is -'SOUS' . HE WANTED NO photos of him, nor any recognition or money. HE got soaking wet. Quickly the spare tyre was on the car and we could move again. New hope for SA.
