Mzanisi was left in disbelief when a young waiter was mocked and given a R4 tip 'for the hungry Africans'. However, he later got a generous R4 444 tip, and now feels inspired and confident of a brighter future.
The news of what happened to a waiter at Las Vegas Spur in East London, Eastern Cape, had Mzansi upset and disappointed.
The young man was teased by a group of teenagers who were also racially abusive towards Xolani Mbalo, tipped him R4, 'for hungry Africans'.
Xolani has since opened a case of crimen injuria against the teenagers and also claims they laughed and made comments as they were served, including offering him leftover chips because he ‘looked hungry’.
After the incident, a kind Samaritan, who asked to remain anonymous, visited the restaurant after he heard about Xolani's story.
He left the 24-year-old, an information technology development graduate, a R4 444 tip, also for 'hungry Africans'. However, the generous man meant Africans who are hungry for justice and hope.
News24 reported that after receiving the tip, Xolani was shocked. He saved some of the money for his graduation.
I was shocked when I got the money. I saved a little bit of the money for my graduation next month. I would like to thank them. I appreciate it.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Xolani is inspired by the selfless act of the man, and is reminded there are good people out there.
There are people out there who are nice. There are few people who would do such things out there.
The graduate has bright dreams for his future, including looking after his gogo financially and finding an internship.
I was a waiter and doing my diploma at the same time. I chose to work on weekends so that I can have pocket money. But now I would like to get a job in Information Technology and look after my grandmother – my parents are not alive anymore.
