A man has shared a heart-warming story about how a stranger came to his assistance after he found himself stranded in the middle of nowhere.
Ashraf Walker was riding his brand-new motorbike to Cape Town. About 140km from Colesburg, he got a flat tyre. With no help nearby, he was forced to slow down to 40km/h and attempt to cover the distance. Fortunately for him, a bakkie pulled up beside him. The stranger initially scared Walker, but he was relieved to see that he was offering help. The man, identified as Johan, was able to pump his tyre and accompany him to Colesburg.
A grateful Walker took to social media to thank the kind stranger. Mzansi social media were moved by the act of Ubuntu. Facebook user Marion Mann Simon said:
"What a heart warming story"
While Suzete Pereira said:
"An angel sent by God...for sure!"
Briefly.co.za previously reported that a woman took to social media to thank three men for coming to her rescue after her car got a flat tyre on a notoriously unsafe road. Mzansi social media users also expressed their gratitude to the men for their help. According to the post, the woman was stuck on the M19 with a flat tyre. The road does not have a good reputation with locals due to the unsavoury activity that occurs on the highway.
