South Africans have taken to social media to share their disapproval of claims that Nkosikho Mbele won't be receiving the massive amount raised for him on BackaBuddy.
Social media was flooded with angry posts by South Africans, who called out the management of the viral campaign that raised more than R470 000 for petrol attendant Nkosikho Mbele.
According to BackaBuddy, Mbele requested that it manage the money raised for him because he lives in a dangerous area.
BackaBuddy added: "Nkosi has asked that the money is administered by Backabuddy for his safety as he does not live in a safe area."
Mzansi was not impressed by the news and they were vocal about their disappointment.
Lungelo Buthelezi, who goes by the Twitter handle @lungistorol, commented: "So they are now dictating how the petrol attendant should spend his money?"
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Mbele opened up about the overwhelming support he received since his act of kindness went viral.
He said he never expected a customer he trusted to come back to repay him would do this for him.
The inspirational fuel attendant plans to continue with his kindness - he said he plans on using the money to help homeless kids living on the streets of the Mother City as well as his family.
