- A homeless man was prepared to give away his last meal to a hungry stranger
- In a video shared by BI Phakathi, the generous man willingly gave his last food item away selflessly, not knowing he would be rewarded
- Phakathi was impressed by his generosity and gave him money to buy more food
A homeless man recently learnt that having a good heart pays off. In a video shared on social media, a stranger approaches him and asks for food. The man doesn't hesitate to give him his last meal. The stranger turns out to be BI Phakathi, who rewarded the kind act by giving the homeless man money.
BI Phakathi shared the footage on Facebook and it went viral. The homeless man said that his name was Lennox and he was from Mitchell's Plain. He told Phakathi that he was planning on eating some bread for dinner. When Phakathi asked for some of that bread, Lennox did not hesitate to open his bag and give it to him.
The pleasantly-surprised Phakathi gave the bread back and thanked the man for his kindness. He then told him that he was just testing him before proceeding to give the man some money.
Social media users were impressed by the footage. Facebook user DeAndre Cortez Corleone said:
"Lennox is a good person."
Stacy Leigh Abrahams said:
"Without flinching... That man wanted to share his last meal that he had kept for supper... I'm so embarrassed as a human being right now... Thanks again for inspiring and motivating us you are a great man, truly."
