South Africans were left in awe when a man took to Twitter to try and find the owner of a wallet - complete with its money and cards.

In these trying times, the temptation to take the money and toss the wallet is a big one, but there are still very good, honest people out there.

The man, Twitter user @Thabang2308, shared a snap of the wallet and asked tweeps to retweet until they find the owner, who can be identified by the ID card in it.

Guys I found a wallet next to Maponya Dube Shoprite in Soweto, it has R500, two driver's license and Capitec Bank Card. His name is S Sangweni. He must be staying around Dube, Meadowlands, Mofolo and Orlando West. Please retweet until we find the owner.

South Africans couldn't help but compliment @Thabang2308 for doing something that very few people would do.
