On Thursday, BI Phakathi posted a video on social media which showed him helping a young man who was travelling without food or money.

The video shows the kind man asking the traveller where he was headed and a bit of his back story. He learned the young man, who identified himself as Ian, was going to Heidelberg after his previous employer failed to pay his salary for two months.

However, he had a tough time on his trip because he had no money for food or transport and people refused to stop and help him.

Staying true to himself, BI Phakathi gave him more than enough money to buy food and to get to where he is going.
