A man took to social media to share how an ice-cream seller's honesty helped him get his cellphone back.
Johann Swanepoel, who hails from Bloemfontein, was busy cleaning the inside of his car when he received a phone call to handle some business.
Positive Relationships in SA reported Swanepoel left his phone on the car's roof or bonnet and he drove off.
Swanepoel embarked on his trip to pay a painter and he lost his phone, which he managed to get back because of one man's honesty.
"Shortly after I began a frantic search and got people to call my number but to no avail. I then tracked my phone via Google on my laptop and found a spot. I drove there but came up empty. When I got home I started charging a replacement phone when the notifications of friends started coming through on messenger," Swanepoel said.
Willem Ndlela, an ice-cream seller, took the phone to the security guards at the gate of the women's memorial monument and they messaged his WhatsApp contacts.
"They in turn messaged me. I drove there and to my relief found it. The security guard there Hendrik tested my knowledge of the phone and I identified it. To thank him and Willem I gave them all the money in my wallet which was quite a lot and thankfully returned home," he said.
South Africans were inspired by the man's honesty, Briefly.co.za gathered.
Rosien Keyser commented: "Woh! Impressive and inspirational, may he be blessed with better opportunities."
Nkulie Teise added: "You rock Willem. May God showers you with His divine protection and prosperity in Jesus' Name.
Anthea Kruger said: "Awesome glad you got your phone back... Good Samaritan well done William."
