Nkhosikho is a petrol attendant at a filling station on the N2 on the route to Cape Town. Monet van Deventer pulled in to get some petrol when she realised she didn’t have her bank card or money to pay.
She said that before she asked for her car to be filled, she had a feeling that she had forgotten her bank card at home.
"While I was looking for my card, a conscientious young man began to clean my windows. After the search, I told him I couldn’t find my card and unfortunately wouldn’t be able to pay for petrol.”
What happened next was almost unbelievable.
“You can’t run out of petrol on the N2. I’ll give you R100, and then you can just bring back my R100 whenever you’re here again.”
Without waiting for an answer, he started filling the car with R100 worth of petrol and paid for it.
Nkhosikho didn’t even ask for her name or her number – he just said wished her a safe drive.
“When I returned later to give him the money, I asked him what made him help me and how could he trust that I would return the money"
The man answered:
“Ma’am I am a believer!”
Monet shared the story on social media Facebook and Nkosikho has inspired many.
“Thank you, Nkosikho, for your lovely heart. You gave me hope today for our country. May Jesus Bless your Life Abundantly!”
