Zama Mthembu was devastated when her car broke down and left her and her mom stranded at a China Mall branch, but was left feeling filled with gratitude and positivity when a complete stranger helped fix the car and get Zama and her mom back on the road.
Zama Mthembu took to social media this week to share a touching story with Mzansi, about how a stranger’s kindness got her and her mother out of a tricky situation.
The man who helped is a taxi driver from Benoni named Musawenkosi Maseko and he took 3 and a half hours out of his day just to help Zama with her car, even though he did not know her or her mom and it was drizzling.
Zama explained how her and her mom were about to leave a mall parking lot when she noticed a strange liquid pouring out from underneath her car.
She thought the substance was a juice or something that she had driven over, so when a friendly taxi driver hopped out of his minibus to offer help she told him that everything was fine.
Luckily, Musa knew that the car wasn’t actually fine and he explained to Zama what the liquid was and how it affected the car and then proceeded to help Zama replace the broken piece of the vehicle.
Musa did not expect Zama or her mom to pay him anything and was just happy to help the stranded pair.
