A woman has taken to social media to thank a security guard for safely returning her lost phone. Mzansi social media users were inspired by the sweet story.
Anne Barkhuizen lost her phone while at the Liberty Mall in Pietermaritzburg. She called the last place she remembered having it - Woolworths Cafe. The manager went to check for her phone but couldn’t find it.
“I would like to honour Woolworths Coffee shop manager- I think her name is Tanya – for personally going to the liberty mall security office to report my phone missing as it wasn't in the coffee shop and gave them Wayne’s number to contact if my phone was found.”
Anne’s friend started calling the phone to see if anyone would pick up. Senzo, a security guard at the mall didn’t hear it ring but saw the phone on the floor of the parking lot. He picked it up and went to the centre management to hand it in.
When Anne’s friend called again, the centre management answered, letting her know the phone was found and safe.
“Thanks Liberty Mall and Senzo for your honesty and my friend Marie who phoned my number and found that they had it. I love my beloved country.”
She was able to meet up with Senzo to say thank you and give him a small reward for his honesty and efforts.
